Challenging Experience with Paycor

Anyone considering using Paycor should be prepared for a difficult setup and less-than-intuitive user experience. While it may provide some useful paycheck and tax information, the overall experience left much to be desired.

  • The ability to access paycheck details and review whether my worked hours and taxes were accurately accounted for
  • The initial login and setup process were exceptionally challenging
  • Navigating through the system was not at all self-explanatory, leaving me frustrated and confused.

  • The software is useful for accessing check stubs and other important documents such as W2 forms
  • It's also easy to navigate and provides information about employee benefits and required training.
  • The program can sometimes load slowly, but this may be due to my connection.
