Paylocity is an equal opportunity employer.
Paylocity was ranked the 9th fastest growing company by Fortune in late 2020, and we are looking for amazing talent that wants to live the reputation & come grow with us!
Hiring for February 2022!
Program Overview:
Our Readiness for Innovation and Service Excellence (RISE) Program was designed to think next generation with the recent college graduate (up to two years of experience) in mind- you are fresh off your degree and wanting to develop, learn and grow!
In our RISE program, you will earn it every day as we will train you on our booming industry, company & software while teaching you skills that will build a foundation for success for years to come at Paylocity. You'll love this role if you get your kicks by helping others. We're looking for someone who loves solving problems and creating long term customer relationships. This is a great opportunity if you care deeply, genuinely, and passionately about customer support and about the role it plays in making a customer-centric team successful.
RISE allows you to accelerate right to our Account Manager II role where you will work to master the foundational role that will prepare you for any future opportunities by gaining valuable exposure to all of our award-winning products, our clients & our processes.
As an Account Manager II, you'll be responsible for building strong relationships with the goal of creating loyal Paylocity Clients. The average book of business for our account managers is between $500k - $1 million & between 50-150 mid-size to large clients. That's amazing responsibility!
Our Account Managers take full accountability for providing timely responsiveness and proactive follow-up, problem solving by leveraging knowledge, resources, qualitative and quantitate information, and professional communication with our clients. They provide clients guidance on HR and Payroll best practices, organizational change management and Paylocity product fit while implementing and optimizing ancillary products.
After 6 months performing in your role as an Account Manager 2, you'll be invited to attend an exclusive talent development program to prepare you for your next role. These 3-month programs focus on education and readiness, so that you're in the best position to apply for your next promotion to one of these three key roles:
  • Executive Account Manager - you are focused on the clients & work with our high profile large and complex clients to partner and provide guidance while interacting with senior leaders within Paylocity
  • Team Lead - you are focused on driving results through others & thrive on motivating & guiding employees and clients during often high-pressure situations
  • Technical Support Specialist - you are focused on the technology & troubleshooting while thriving on learning new technical skills then translating your knowledge into actionable directions for clients and account managers
As you enter year two with Paylocity, your growth will fuel opportunity as you will have been given the resources and tools to continue to develop and grow with us into the roles above and beyond!
This Position Reports To: Manager, Client Services
Location: Schaumburg, IL
Please note: This role is in one of our modern offices with virtual working options available with tenure & performance.
Who You Are:
  • You graduated with your bachelor's degree within the last 2 years
  • You're experienced in Client facing or customer service roles
  • You love collaborating with others to make awesome happen
  • You like to work hard, play hard & are self-motivated
  • You're quick on your feet and are comfortable with a little chaos and uncertainty
  • Details are your thing!
  • You have the heart of a teacher - after all, you taught grandma how to use her iPhone!
  • MS Office applications like Word and Excel are no sweat when it comes to your skillset
  • Learning new things is your middle name
  • Please note, you must pass a job dependent Final Exam at training end
Skills That Really Stand Out:
  • Issue Resolution - You like making things easier for customers and colleagues. If there's a roadblock, you're happy to smooth it away. No problem is too big or too small!
  • Client Focus - You're energized by interacting with and helping people. You know that everyone has trouble sometimes and look to empower and educate our customers so they can utilize our software to drive their success.
  • Focus on the timely and successful delivery of solutions - You understand the urgency that is needed when our clients need help, and you aren't afraid to get your hands dirty to get the job done quickly and efficiently.
  • System Capability - You are tech-savvy, a quick learner, and able to manage multiple different systems/programs at one time.
  • Leverage Resources - You love reading and learning about new ways of doing things but aren't afraid to ask for help if you can't figure it out.

An Insider's view of Paylocity

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Paylocity's work-life balance is better than any employer I have had previously. I have never been told that it's ok to take a mental health day, I needed that, just to be told that its ok to do is enough to let you know that Paylocity cares about our mental health. The happier we are the better we work. I am so glad to be a part of this team!


Support Specialist II

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started at PCTY right out of college as part of the New College Grad program which is part of the path to becoming a Software Engineer. I get to learn about and discuss the latest technologies and deepen my understanding of designing solutions for customers. I have seen myself grow into someone who has solutions to problems and brings ideas.


Associate Software Engineer

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

I've never felt like I had to choose work over myself or my family. If I have to take care of something outside of work my manager is very supportive and the understanding that I'll get my work done is there. I have been able to set boundaries and "turn off" work when I need to. I love the fact that I have a true work family that cares about me.
