So the company is rolling out payroll cards. Yay. What a complete sham. I’ve heard only BAD THINGS about these programs and any program that comes with a thick booklet with pages of small print isn’t worth signing up for.

For those without multiple bank accounts direct deposit is just fine. But for someone with multiple accounts, paper checks are the simplest way to work things. There was some paperwork that went through to sign up for the different options of receiving your money, I made sure I checked off the option to continue to receive paper checks. What a surprise it was to discover that my latest paycheck wasn’t a paycheck but only a pay stub indicating how much I was receiving for direct deposit. Something I never signed up for. So this money, which I very much need, is in purgatory and I have a fun phone call to make with HR. Fantastic.
