Someone explain to me how this is suppose to work as I've never done it before. I'm working with this company who pays via direct deposit because supposedly it's faster than a paycheck. So they were supposed to do payroll March 1. So I check my bank statement online Monday and see a deposit of .1 cent from a bank so I figure thats the company making sure they had the right info or whatever. It is now Thursday morning and I still haven't seen shit in my account :(

It's not necessarily "faster," you just get earlier access to your funds.

For instance, if you get paid on March 1st, the HR department can either hand you a paper check (which at the very soonest, you can drive straight to the bank and deposit it immediately that day), or they will directly put the funds in your account.

Now, every bank does this a little differently, but if you set up direct deposit, and your account shows (typically the day before, on February 28th) that the deposit will go into your account by the 1st, you can actually spend money on the evening of the 28th as if the funds were available that evening.

Thats my fear too but since it's the first time paying me I was hoping the .1 cent deposit was just testing the account.

Are they paying you on commission? If so, you should work harder.

you got scammed by people dressed as human resource workers collecting people's bank information.

This is easily explainable. What companies like to do is the paycheck prior to first full direct deposit will be a test deposit to make sure you are recieving the funds instead of someone else. In most cases you should recieve a paper paycheck on your scheduled payday for that pay period. In any case I would contact payroll to see either why your funds haven't been deposited or when you are going to recieve a paper check.

Maybe I misunderstood, but it's pretty standard for first paychecks to come through. If anything, a little longer when it's direct deposit. Just ask HR what's up.

Is it possible your pay is based on your Wonderlic results?

Direct deposit is great, no more rushing to the bank to cash the check

This is what the company I'm currently working for did, my first paycheck was a paper one. Been DD ever since with no problems.

Why would you need to rush to the bank when you already have a bazillion dollars in it?

So you got a .01 raise before your first paycheck? I don't see a problem here. That interest may add up over time.

Not sure what your point is, I can afford to take time off of work if I want to. But that's good that you're going to get away for a while so you won't be here annoying the hell out of the rest of us.

Everywhere I've worked before with direct deposit, the first and last payments were paper checks. Make sure you're check isn't sitting in HR.

Have you ever had a job before? I've been using direct deposit for over 10 years now.

I don't think I can even get a paper check now. The only people who did that were nutjobs who didn't trust banks.

Nope, you can't get a paper check. Our organization did away with those completely a couple years ago, IIRC.

I've been doing DD since the late 90s.

Yeah, I've been doing DD for 10 yrs.

When I moved last yr I worked for a couple of staffing agencies and they dont even offer a check. They give you a debit card or use your existing account.

I had to drop off a bill at the bank on a Friday afternoon. I could see the lobby from the drive through, and it looked like a lawn care worker's convention.

Try driving by a AT&T/Sprint/T-Mobile/Verizon store on the first of the month, it's packed with people who are only there to pay their cell phone bill. :spock:

I checked with HR and they said that they made the full deposit for your first 2 weeks on the job, but that the govt had taken out their new Ginger-Tax.

I've been using direct deposit for years. It's very convenient and it may save you on checking account fees, especially in the near future as banks are looking for ways to charge more for less service. I would definitely call either Human Resources, your Personnel Department, your immediate supervisor or payroll depending on how your company handles your paychecks. The key to being paid correctly is to acts as swiftly as possible.

My bank doesn't take deposits at the ATM (at least I don't think they do), so I still need to use the drive through every now and then.

I woke up this morning to money in my bank account. As for those who've asked for my pin # and PW I have taken screen shots and forward them to the local authorities. Happy St.Pats day
