Additional Notes

Complaint Category: Failure to provide promised assistance or support for products or services

Complaint: I'm not able to get a copy of my paycheck stub. I've called ********* about 30 times in two days to resolve the issue. Their Customer Service refuse to fix the problem. A Customer Service Manage lied to me. He told me he would call me back in 20 min & he did. Yet he said then he can't resolve the problem until he talks to someone around lunch time. Three days later he has refused to call me back. HE LIED!

Initial Business Response
Contact Name and Title: ********* Sr Client Svc M
Contact Phone: (*************
Contact Email: ********************
We at ********* strive to provide the best customer service available in the industry. We manage very sensitive information and as such have agreements with our clients to only speak to approved company contacts. The gentlemen in question is an employee for a valued client of ours and is not one of the approved company contacts that we are allowed to speak with. Although we were sympathetic to the concerns of the gentlemen, we followed protocol and reported the problem to our client in an attempt to resolve. We have this protocol in place to protect the data that we manage and are confident that we took the appropriate steps to resolving the gentlemen's concerns. Our valued client appreciated us taking these measures to protect their data.

Final Consumer Response
(The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.)
I did finally get my paycheck stub 4 days later. Late but thank you.

On that issue it is resolved.

The customer Service Manager with ********* has yet to keep his word by calling me back. Integrity in a business means keeping your word. If you say you are going to call someone back. Call them back even if your not able to help them.

On that issue ********* has poor customer service.

The ********* website forced me to change my password that I didn't request to be changed.

My employer had my password reset.
1. I tried the new password & it didn't work.
2. So I tried my own password & again the ********* website locked me out.
3. I tried resetting my own password & it worked.
4. Doing what ********* said didn't work. Having my employer rest the password didn't work. Somehow I was able to get through on my own which I still don't understand.

On that issue: CONFUSED?

I was told by the owner of the company I work for that ********* threatened to drop them as a client.
I was then threatened to be fired as a result.

On that issue threats by ********* is unprofessional. Threats never solve problems. To solve problems you find out what is wrong and fix it.

No one from ********* has showed us how to use their website to get our paycheck stubs. I was told by another sales rep. from *********: They the sales rep. is to train ALL Administrators, HR director, & managers. So that the company can train the employees how to use the ********* website. My manager was NEVER trained by a ********* Sales Rep.

Therefore as a result we have this problem.

Please have someone from ********* to show up in person to explain by showing us first hand how to use their website.

Thank you for your time.

Final Business Response
********* takes our clients privacy very seriously and we are working with our client to address their employee so that they understand the importance of data sensitivity. We complied with Mr. Smith as best we could without exposing sensitive information. This is going to be addressed between the client and their employee. Our client is in complete agreement in the manner in which we handled this situation.

Complaint Resolution: BBB determined the company made a reasonable offer to resolve the issues, but the consumer did not accept the offer.
