I have been working at Paycom full-time
The sense of community is astounding. I love my coworkers and enjoy getting to work with them every day. The benefits are also hard to compete with, which is why I am still with the company.
There is a lot going on in one of our client facing departments. They are currently requiring members on these teams to have their phones on DND no more than 1 hour a day which is great for clients, but not so great for our team members. 6 employees were just fired for cheating the system. Instead of Paycom taking a step back and asking themselves why their employees felt the need to do what they did, they fired 6 individuals who collectively, had several years of experience behind them. Which honestly, is something they cannot afford.
There is also a current issue with training. It's not enough. It's paid, onsite training, but with the amount of stuff you're required to get done in a day, things start slipping through the cracks. You cannot take care of the customers without the proper training. (You also shouldn't fire 6 people that do actually know what they're doing).
Paycom seems to think anyone is expendable. "Fire 6 people, no big deal. We'll just hire someone who we think will do a good job even though they haven't been here but 6 months or have no business leading a team." seems to be the slogan of our managers as of late.
Advice to Management
This company is falling apart from the inside out. We win all these awards and sometimes, I'm not sure how. Sure, we're compensated nicely and you give us gifts every month, but the way some of us are treated is almost inhumane. We are not expendable. We put time, value and money into getting to know this company and into doing our jobs. No gift you give me is going to make up for the fact that the amount of stuff I have to do in a single day takes me away from my family.. stress is so much, it often makes me sick. You're probably going to respond and tell me this company may not be the best fit for me, and that's fine. But hopefully someone else will see what I'm saying and make the decision to stay away from this place until our executives have figured out what it is they want to do, and have figured out a better way to achieve it than by bullying their current employees.
First interview began with a Skype interview with a recruiter that lasted about 30 mins very easy and simple questions were asked. Second interview was conducted with the manager hiring for the position interview lasted about an hour but towards the end of the interview began to feel very uncomfortable with the questions being asked such as whether my parents were divorced and how many kids I had questions that did not pertain to the position. Anyways made it to the 3rd interview which was an introduction to the team a long with a phone blitz which required 3 appts be set minimum. 3 appts minimum didn’t seem tough. This is where my perception of the company turned even more I was brought in along with another candidate in what seemed to be a battle of who do I prefer more which seemed extremely unprofessional we were asked the same set of questions and it seemed extremely weird to say the least. I have indured some good and bad interview experiences but the last interview was by far the worst experience I’ve had. Hiring manager was extremely unprofessional in some instances cursed and in many instances spoke about many things irrelevant to the position such as personal life, what things they like to purchase with there money and other things. If you have years of sales experience and are looking for a professional environment to continue your career then this position is not for you more geared towards kids coming out of college. Again I can careless about the offer but the professionalism was not there and almost felt like I was being profiled.
