To do this, we offer a full benefits package, training programs, and opportunities for advancement.

Conscientiously, applying your attention to detail, you compile and review reports using IBM Cognos Reports, ADP Reports, and MS Excel. You are always proactive, tracking and monitoring changes to the payroll tax and labor laws.

Though you spend much of your time working independently, your interpersonal skills come in handy as you answer employee's payroll-related questions. You also correspond with federal, state, and local tax agencies as well as the payroll processing company to resolve issues. You are always respectful and handle confidential information with the utmost care. You feel good about contributing to the success of a well-respected company that plays such a vital role in the security of our country!
