Tax Registration Specialist II, Paylocity

The time I spent at Paylocity from August 2014 to November 2021 was more than just a job, it was a journey filled with wonderful opportunities and memories. It was a pleasure to work with such a great team of people who not only shared their knowledge with me, but also became my friends. During my time at Paylocity, I had the opportunity to work in both Implementation and Tax departments, which taught me greatly about the industry.

I still remember the day I was first introduced to the Audit Team in Implementation. It was a challenging job, but I was fortunate to work closely with Implementation Consultants to review their client setups, ensuring that they were ready for their first payroll. As I worked with new Implementation Consultants, I realized that they could benefit from additional training. This led me to create a mentorship program, which was a huge success.

It was fulfilling to see that my efforts paid off, resulting in a decrease in errors compared to the previous year without the program. I was proud of myself and felt a sense of accomplishment. I had never felt so passionate about my work before, and it was all thanks to the great people and culture of Paylocity.

Because training had become my passion, I eventually made the difficult decision to leave Paylocity for a full-time training role. Even though I was excited about the new opportunity, I soon realized that the new company wasn't the right place for me. I missed my team and the work culture at Paylocity. So, after nearly two years of being away, I finally decided to come back home. The feeling of rejoining Paylocity was indescribable.

I interviewed with different teams, but my heart led me to Tax Registration. It's a team that I feel passionate about, and I'm thrilled to be working with them again. I'm also looking forward to working towards becoming the team's trainer.

Paylocity is not just a company; it's a family. I feel a strong sense of kinship with the people here. Many of the people I hold dear work here, and the bonds I've formed are invaluable. The company's culture and values really resonate with me, and I've gained a wealth of knowledge during my time here.

I believe that life is a journey, and Paylocity has been an important part of mine. It's a place where I've grown both personally and professionally. The opportunities for personal and professional development are plentiful, and I'm excited to witness what the future has in store for Paylocity and its staff. If you're looking for a place to grow your career, build friendships, and be part of a family, Paylocity is the perfect place for you.
