I have been working at Complete Payroll for over a year and I can tell you this: Payroll Country is not just a clever tagline. It's real. It exists. And everyone here both feels it and contributes to it. This place is special.

The family setting is what attracted me to Complete Payroll. It's a family-owned, local company, and there is value here that you just dont get at other places, especially in the corporate world.

As a member of both the Evans and Southtowns Chambers of Commerce, I am building relationships with a lot of people and really getting to know them. Complete Payroll gives me the resources and the tools that I need to help them out. It's a great feeling!

Complete Payroll truly is a family environment. We all know each other. We all care about each and every person as an individual. I think that's why, as a company, we do so well.

My favorite thing about Complete Payroll is the people. There is unlimited support from CSR's, TSR's (implementation), the managers... everyone is there for you. Getting a call from our Sales Director or CEO congratulating you on having a good month goes a long way, in my eyes.

Rob Kropczynski


My favorite thing about working at Complete Payroll is the flexibility. With having three boys, my wife, and the dog, we have a lot going on, especially after hours. So, it's great to be flexible with what I do during the day, so I can enjoy all of those things with my family.
