Employee Spotlight: Meet Sarah

Prior to working at Paycom, Sarah worked in customer service for a large, well-known telecommunications company. She’s always been passionate about customer service, but she felt limited in solving the root cause of customer problems. Sarah’s friend, who loved her own Paycom career, suggested she apply.

Sarah joined Paycom’s specialist department, where she could build long-term relationships with clients, truly focus on resolving their tech issues and provide them with a great care experience.

We recently interviewed Sarah to learn more about her Paycom career.

Describe what you do.

I’m the Product Management team leader for Performance and Learning Management. My role focuses on identifying customer needs, creating strategic product road maps, conducting competitive research and market analysis, and managing and developing other product managers.

What’s your favorite thing about being in your department and/or role?

My favorite thing about being in Product Management is being able to solve client problems and truly make an impact on people’s lives. I love the mix of technical knowledge and creativity that are required for the role.

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

Your role will be challenging, but rewarding. Every new employee at Paycom has the overwhelming feeling of, “What did I get myself into?” or they ask, “Can I really do this?” The answer is you can! It will be tough, but if you stay dedicated to putting in the work, it will definitely be rewarded with growth and opportunities for advancement.

What is your greatest accomplishment at Paycom?

Getting other people promoted. In my leadership roles, I gauge my success based on if my employees are growing. I’ve been very successful in helping others advance their career.

What hobbies do you enjoy in your free time?

I enjoy spending time with my wife and two girls, Tenley and Teagan. They’re my world and fill my heart with so much joy. When I can’t be with them, I like to ride my motorcycle and play pickleball. (Not at the same time, of course!)
