How Do You Track Your Employees' Time?

Hi All,

I'm new here, but I was wondering how those of you who have employees track their time? Is it yard by yard or hourly? Do you use paper time cards?

I'd love to hear any info y'all have.

Thanks!

Aaron

Strictly hourly. Good old fashioned punch clock at the shop. Every week I tally the hours and enter them on my payroll services account. Paying per yard would be a nightmare as they vary so much.

I see. So you have to manually key the hours into the payroll services account?

Thanks for your feedback

Yes. Some payroll companies have a badge system where the employee swipes his badge and it goes to the payroll server. Costs more of course. I save money doing things simpler. I don't need top tech for everything. Id rather put the money to more practical use.
