Join the Buffalo Sales Team at Complete Payroll

Our award-winning sales team has helped fuel rapid growth that just earned us a spot on the Western New York's "Fast Track Companies" list.

Not bad for a company that's been around for more than a quarter century. 


Position Summary

In Payroll Country, our Sales Account Executives don’t like to be fed, they like to hunt. We’ll give you a chair, but you won’t use it much. Instead, you’ll spend a lot of your time in the field, greeting prospects with a smile and a handshake, not a templated email. When you’re not, you’ll be actively researching and pursuing new business through social media, cold-calling, and whatever resources you can manage. That’s not to say that you won’t have technology to back you up, though. Our entire sales force has access to a world-class, all-encompassing CRM. Not to mention, the full support of everyone else in the Complete Payroll family. If you’re experienced, confident, driven by success, can work both autonomously and part of a team, and a master networker, then not only will you reap the benefits of our generous commission structure, you’ll have a home in Payroll Country.

Reports to: Sales Manager

Office: Buffalo, NY

From the beginning of my employment it has felt like family. Everyone is willing to lend a helping hand just like our families outside of work.


Interactions with top level management aren't something that's reserved for the "elite" few employees, but something that occurs on a daily basis.


I can honestly say that this is the best place I've ever worked and I'm honored to be a part of Payroll Country.

Who We Are

Complete Payroll is a family owned business that has been providing payroll, timekeeping and HRIS solutions to local businesses (across 49 states) primarily in WNY for over 25 years.  We pride ourselves on the fact that we have 3 times the amount of employees on the service end than the sales end. We are focused on ensuring that our clients know who is handling their payroll and feel like they can get answers when they need them.  We know that not every solution that we provide to our clients should be the same, so we focus on only providing the services that they need. We have a team of dedicated transition specialists to welcome every single client on board and ensure that their experience with our company is seamless and hassle free right from the start.  Most importantly, we provide each client with one single customer service representative to work with every step of the way, not a call center. This is why we are proud to say that we have been able to retain over 90% of our client base consistently. Our Account Executives don’t answer customer complaints or billing issues all day long because frankly, we don’t have many.  Here’s a few other reasons to join our team:
