Mission: Since 1997, Paylocity's mission has been to elevate the profession of Payroll and Human Resources across the backroom and into the boardroom – where it belongs.
I have been working at Paylocity full-time (More than a year)
Paylocity has the best technology for the mid-market, HANDS DOWN! It's rare that Paylocity loses a deal in an honest evaluation. We have an amazing support culture where everyone, no matter their tenure or position, is willing to lend a helping hand when needed. The amount of money you can make at Paylocity is almost a little hard to believe especially considering you get to work from home. Paylocity is a dynamic organization which let's us switch gears quickly when a better approach to something is evident.
Make no mistake about it, this is a hard job. Your first year at Paylocity is not going to be fun. Just working hard isn't going to get you to the promised land. You need to also have a set of skills and overall business acumen to succeed here. Paylocity doesn't have the name recognition that a lot of our competitors enjoy so you almost feel like you're starting from behind the 8-ball on every deal. This is starting to slowly change but we are still a young organization comparatively. You will have to manage a lot of different personalities within your network and handle challenging situations as they arise. Thankfully, we have a very experienced and understanding management team to help out. At the end of the day this is a sales job and being expected to hit goals, metrics, and numbers don't go away just because we have a great culture. You may work 50+ hours a week; however most of those hours can be fun if done properly.
Advice to Management
Be careful of market segmentation as you don't want to encroach on territories where existing reps have been successful. Don't hire someone just because an open position needs to be filled. Wait for the right candidate.
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Paylocity.
Basic - contacted through LI, short interview with recruiter. Didn't follow up like he said so I had to contact him again and then after he responded still didn't close the loop.
