Love it! Very user friendly

Pros

Ease of requests and accepting them, accurate upkeep of accruals, customizable to my needs. Instant email notification

The time it takes to get into the software every day for hourly employees and the approval process at the end of a work week could be automated.

Human Resources Manager

Ok program but the ease of use could be better with better customer support response time.

Pros

Once you learn to operate is is easy but you have to be taught. It is not plug and play for the most part.

Cons

Customer support was difficult and wait times were mediocre, more staff and better tutorials need to be implemented.

Just Fine

Pros

Can format however you would like, easy for visibility. They do offer decent customer service. Step by step processes for running a payroll is ok.

Cons

Not super user-friendly. If you are in it all the time, it is fine, but it is not great for onboarding and first-time use.

Nurse in Emergency Room

Pros

The Kronos app is convenient to use when away from work. Seeing my schedule and my working hours on my phone or on the computer allows me to properly plan my work schedule and review my hours worked.

Cons

The software often feels clunky and not user friendly. Loading the calendar often feels slow. The overall app feels dull and outdated.

Satisfied user of Kronos Workforce

Pros

I have been with several companies and most of them use Kronos. I bet it's because this tool is really useful and convenient to use.

Cons

Sometimes, it reacts a couple of seconds after button is clicked but that is tolerable, all function of the app are perfectly working for me and the rest of the team.

Kronos Honest review.

Pros

An excellent software. I may say that this is an all in one solid tool for large organizations. Very easy to access and navigate. And good thing is it is available in mobile application.

Cons

Focus on training is required to be able to maximize the use of this software. Not easy for first time user.

Interesting Software - once you know how to use it

very irritating experience overall in the first months, until I was able to obtain the correct pathways to the right tabs in the right order.

Pros

the possibilities of the program are remarkable - if you know where to maneuver around the different tabs

Cons

the set up was easily facilitated and access to details were clear

Awesome software

I will use this when I set up my home health business, because it’s the best.

Pros

I really like how when I can’t get into the software it’s a number to call to reset password. I loved everything about the software.

Cons

I really don’t have no cons it’s the best software I have ever tried. I like everything about the software.

Great Software

Pros

At first I was a bit intimidated with using this system. However after using for past year it has gotten much easier and I am able to help my staff to maneuver as well.

Cons

Sometimes takes roo long to love on especially on timesheet days. Also, sometimes I have to keep going back into the current timesheet as a starting point instead of being able to transition easily to the next screen.

Convenient and handy HR buddy!

Despite the simple interface, this software proves to be very helpful to easily access employee information, time offs, payroll, clocking in and out and more.

Pros

I liked using Kronos because it is simple and has comprehensive HR management. I do not need to take a trip to the HR team once to raise any concern.

Cons

It is not flexible to run on different browsers. Limited compatibility and seems to have issues with Java. Hard to get a hold of support.

Plenty of features, bugs and learning curve ruin it.

Pros

Allows for very detailed employee attendance and tardiness reports.

Cons

You need to go into a dozen or more widgets to accomplish your tasks. Highly fragmented, and takes users a long time to figure out. Employees still struggle to use it after a year.

Not the best experience with clocking in and out

Needs a complete over haul and re do.

Pros

I do not have any major pros or no pros based on my experience of using this electronic clock in and clock out system

Cons

The fact that it is super sensitive and takes multiple tries and you have to really use the right amount of pressure not too much or too little.

pretty good software

Pros

I liked how easy this was to use and how i could review other information on the time clock.

Cons

I often found that this software did duplicate punch ins or punch outs so i had to go back in and edit timecards.
