Career Growth Spotlight: Meet Brittany

Ashley Jezek | May 13, 2022

Paycom provides aggressive opportunities for growth across departments and teams! Brittany’s career took off after first interning with the Tax department in college. She’s now a team lead for the Product Setup Team, and we recently interviewed Brittany to hear more about her varied Paycom roles and her journey to her current position.

What’s the main reason you chose a career at Paycom?

Opportunity for growth. Paycom does a fantastic job of providing opportunity for everyone to grow, whether it’s expanding your knowledge or climbing the ladder of leadership.

Briefly share the departments/roles you’ve served in at Paycom.

Wow! Where do I begin? During my internship, I took advantage of the opportunity to shadow other roles at Paycom. Through shadowing, I ended up finding my way to the recruiting department. I was in recruiting for about nine months and was promoted from a talent reviewer to a recruiter 1. I heard about a new department at Paycom, Enhanced Background Checks® (EBC), so I thought I would check it out. After shadowing a bit more, I decided to take the leap and do something I had never done before. After five months in the EBC department, I was promoted to team lead. I spent 10 months there gaining extremely valuable leadership skills. In December of 2021, I made another drastic change and transferred to Product Setup as a team lead, and that’s where I am today.

To what do you attribute your growth at Paycom?

There are two things that I attribute my growth to. First, leaders who believed in me even when I wasn’t sure of myself. Second, getting comfortable with being uncomfortable. I have been extremely fortunate to work with some of the best leaders here at Paycom, most of whom have always pushed me out of my comfort zone. I can honestly say I learned the most from those times when I took a leap of faith and made a change. Nothing will ever improve without change.

How does working at Paycom make you feel?

Working at Paycom makes me feel confident and empowered. Paycom has a way of bringing out the best in people and empowering you to take on new challenges.

Why are your career goals a good fit with Paycom?

I’ve known for a long time that I wanted to get into leadership as quickly as possible, and Paycom gives you the opportunity to do that if you work hard and take advantage of the endless chances to learn and grow.

What would you tell someone considering a career at Paycom?

Paycom has been a fast-growing company since the beginning, and we don’t have plans on stopping. So jump on board and give it everything you have, and I promise you it will pay off!
