My Paycom Journey as a Quality Assurance Analyst

Abraham Mendieta | February 17, 2023

At Paycom, you can build a career and grow in ways you may have never imagined. Reagan is a software assurance analyst (QA) on Paycom’s quality assurance team, and her experience is a testament to the possibility of finding your dream career.

In 2019, Reagan graduated with a double major from the University of Central Oklahoma in organizational communication and strategic communications. After graduating, she worked a number of jobs before finding what she describes as her favorite workplace at Paycom.

Reagan’s Paycom journey began in February 2021, and she has enjoyed growing and developing her skills in our innovative culture every day since.

We spoke with Reagan about her Paycom Journey. Let’s see what she had to say!

What do you do, and what does your average day look like?

I spend most of my time knee-deep in the system, searching for bugs and making sure everything is working like we want it to. To do this well, I meet with my team of analysts and developers, along with our leadership team, daily to establish team objectives and clarify requirements. We have consistent project deadlines every week, so we plan our week around that and make sure we reach our team goals.

Why did you decide to join the Paycom team?

I knew a lot of great people at Paycom but had never considered working here until I came in contact with a talent acquisition recruiter who spoke to me about a QA opportunity. When the position was presented, it felt like the perfect fit for my personality, so it was an easy yes!

What is your favorite part about being a quality assurance analyst?

I would have to say it’s my team, but my favorite part about my role specifically is using my natural analytical and organizational skills to contribute to big projects. I’m really proud of everything that my team does, and the fact that I get to assist in their success is pretty cool.

What is your favorite #PaycomPerk?

$1 insurance rocks! Also, the pet insurance is a great addition. However, Paycom has so many perks, it’s really hard to choose one. You can get discounts all over the state just for being a Paycom employee, and nothing beats walking downstairs and getting a fountain Diet Coke whenever you want.

What’s your favorite spot on campus?

My workspace next to my amazing team. Everyone has worked on customizing their spaces, and it’s fun to see what everyone brings to make their desks feel like home!

What advice do you have for new Paycom employees?

Paycom is a place where you ask lots of questions and get help when you need it. Since the first moment I spoke to a recruiter, the helpful spirit of everyone at Paycom has been unmatched. Additionally, your team will support you no matter what, so allow them to support you and learn from each other.

Even before Day 1, Reagan was able to experience the collaborative environment and spirit of development that is part of a career at Paycom. That’s just one of the reasons we were awarded Best Career Growth honors by Comparably!
