Glitchy, frustrating and disappointing

The part that is most disappointing is that this app has many of the functions I need and want in a payroll app. However, when you input data for team members, the app freezes. Additionally, I have a lot of part time hires (as an employer) and square sends my new hires an email to sign up. Every single one of my new hires reports some kind of problem signing up, from glitchy freezing and subpar processing of personal data. I’ve gotten to the point of telling all my new hires not to use the mobile app when submitting data for payroll and direct them to use the desktop version. However, when they use the desktop version they constantly encounter the “uh-oh, something went wrong.”

I don’t have time to hold each of my new hires’ hands and walk them through troubleshooting signing up. I need something that works consistently and across the board for my team.

I’ve been super disappointing and am now considering changing my payroll service (which is a nightmare in itself). Square better fix these issues pronto or you’re going to lose my business.

Square Payroll is Great

Having come from a 30-year background in payroll management for a large company I was dreading the prospect of going through the process again for 11 part-time employees. No worries: since my square time card system and payroll are linked, payroll , from managing time cards , direct deposit , tax payments and reporting , deductions and all that goes along with payroll has been perfect. In the payroll world, that’s a big ask. The added benefit of being able to add employees and now adjust time cards on the app is a great addition .

Love payroll app!!

I had started doing payroll on my phone, but at 1st I was using the website on non-mobile and couldn’t see everything. Then I just did payroll on the new payroll app and it was so easy. I love the payroll app. Square is totally mobile with all I need to do now. Thanks square for always being awesome and growing to fit the needs of my business! 8 years with square and I’ve never had to call for help. Everything square makes is just so easy to operate!
