I couldn’t tell you how many times I’ve needed paycheck stubs and had it become a headache....not to mention, I never wanted to switch to direct deposit (bc I like being able to see exactly how each check is broken down) and as result I had check stubs all over my car and in my house yet could never find the most recent 4 or whatever it was that I needed. (Enter headache) This app has made this small but sometimes important part of life so easy. Not only is it so easy to navigate, it’s easier than I ever would have imagined to view, email, print, etc PDF’s of any or all stubs dating back to the beginning of your employment. It also makes it super easy to see your direct deposit info 1-2 days before “pay day.” I wouldn’t delete this app for anything.

Almost completely Non-Functional

If your employer uses this system, at the most you’ll be able view your paystubs.

The non user friendly UI is very confusing to navigate, and seems to host different applications within itself that don’t work on the majority of systems. If you need to see your schedule for work so that you actually show up and get paid and don’t get fired, you are unable to, because that app inside this that employers use for scheduling only seems to work on desktop computers running google chrome. Not even in the proprietary app that I’m reviewing, which Paychex created, or at least is putting their name on. This isn’t mentioned anywhere, so you have to figure it out yourself apparently.

Combine that with the stringent password requirements and the never ending mandatory text confirmations to access the app, it’s pretty pointless, and has cheated me out of money I should have earned.

Recent update broke running payroll.

I generally run payroll and get the reports to our owner who then approves payroll and I will then finish the process of submitting it to Paychex. Many times, I get a text on the weekend or in the evening letting me know I can submit payroll. It used to be, I could log into the app and just submit payroll in the last step. Now, I log in and the app behaves as though I am accessing it through a mobile browser. I get notified that not all features are available in the "mobile browser" and for full functionality, I should download the app. I am in the app. Until this feature is once again fixed, the app is worthless for my purposes. I'd give it 5 stars otherwise. Will update my review and stars when it's fixed.
