Employee Spotlight: Meet Gus

Bonny Calfy | November 12, 2021

We interviewed one of our executive inside sales representatives, Gus, to learn more about his Paycom journey.

 Describe what you do.

As an inside sales representative, I get to help businesses streamline their current payroll and HR processes through a single, easy-to-use platform that allows them to refocus their time into growing their business.

What is your favorite thing about being in inside sales?

My favorite thing about our department is that we get to experience firsthand the excitement from our customers and share it on our team calls. As an inside sales representative, not only do we help businesses come onboard, but we also help implement Paycom into their day-to-day. I get to hear amazing things like, “Wow! This is so easy to use!” and “I love this!” constantly. It just doesn’t get much better than that!

What advice would you give a new employee for being successful at Paycom?

Build meaningful relationships and be a team player. Like Admiral McRaven said in his book Make Your Bed, “It takes a team of good people to get you to your destination… You cannot paddle the boat alone.”

The more meaningful relationships you build, the more opportunities you get to grow, learn and develop. I would advise them to not forget that a successful relationship is a two-way street — check in with your teammates, offer help, give praise and be there for them, too.

What’s the one word you would choose to describe Paycom, and why?

Rewarding. At Paycom, your career opportunities are truly at your fingertips. If you are willing to work hard, help others, learn and have a positive attitude, Paycom will provide you with opportunities.

What is your greatest accomplishment at Paycom?

I believe that my greatest accomplishment is in the making each and every day. As my 6th year at Paycom embarks, I have gotten the opportunity to help hundreds of businesses, which has allowed me to have a positive impact on thousands of employees across the country!

What makes you proud to work at Paycom?

There are so many reasons why I am Paycom proud. I am proud to work for a company that helps put food on the table for hundreds of thousands of families across our country. I am proud to work for executives who give back to the community and help dreams become a reality. I am proud to work for a company that provides its own employees with ways for us to have an impact in our own community through Paycom’s volunteer initiatives, such as by hand-writing letters of hope and encouragement for people going through rough times. I am proud to work for one of the fastest-growing companies and one that challenges the status quo of the industry!

What are some of your favorite hobbies outside of work?

My wife and I enjoy going on walks with our dog and playing Frisbee. We also enjoy playing pickleball and board games with our friends!

If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?

Eggs, bacon and toast with a cup of joe!
