Support does not exist.

We changed over to Employment Hero over 12 months ago and still are not set up correctly. No one to talk to and support is 'hit and miss' at best. - Greg from Magpies Waitara

Don't waste your time

Worst decision we have made. It takes an age to set up, the rostering functionalities are clunky, the app for staff to clock in/out doesn't work, and the customer service team takes days to get back to you to fix any problems. Absolute waste of money, save yourself time and money and look elsewhere.
