Position Overview
The Custom Reports Programmer is responsible for analyzing customer report requests and working with the customer to develop custom reports to meet the needs of Paylocity's payroll and HR system users.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
