This role also involves issuing payroll checks, maintaining records, reconciling payroll accounts, preparing year-end documents, and generating comprehensive reports.

Using different software and having multiple payroll clients means no day is the same and the job is never boring,” says KT payroll specialist, Cheryl Stout. “I like that I am one of many payroll specialists in our office. There is always help if I need it and backups are available so I can take a vacation without stressing out about it! I also like having the flexibility to change or alter my work schedule to accommodate my payroll workload.
