Payroll
What do you do?
I worked for an employment agency. I came in for half a day on Thursday and all day Friday to enter all of the hours into a program that wrote the paychecks. The employees either emailed in their hours or dropped by the office to hand them in personally. I also covered for the receptionist while I was there. Some employees picked up their checks in person. I had to get a manager to approve, then print the check, bring it to two people to sign and hand it over.
