Allstate DOES do direct deposit...

Posted By: Allstate CEO on 2008-01-09
In Reply to: How do they pay? - me

Paypay is merely an OPTION if you choose to be paid that way, just as having your check mailed is...and sent via either snail mail or Priority Mail. Allstate has had direct deposit for quite a while now, but did not have it in 2006 when the original post was made.

I have direct deposit.
I love the platform. It is proprietary software but very VERY user friendly. The staff is great and I really do enjoy it here. And I am serious -- make your own opinion. One or 2 bad apples don't outweigh a couple of hundred happy campers. Our insurance is great -- there is sick leave, holiday, PTO .. it's pretty dang good.
Direct deposit. SM
I just filled out a form for my bank on Monday to have another type of payment set up for direct deposit. So, there's obviously something very, very wrong here.

Good luck.
They pay be direct deposit
Good luck with getting the phone answered.  Does their manager not have a number to call?
Yes, they do have direct deposit. nm
Direct deposit
She has direct deposit now. I even got paid a few days early last week.
No direct deposit
Today is payday and direct deposit not there, still waiting for reason. Apparently ADP problem, not TTS, but still!

I DID sign up for direct deposit.  However, they lost all of my paperwork and paid me as a vendor!!  NOT good!!! 

Direct deposit

I live 20 miles from them, and it took 4 to 5 days to get my check.  The postmark was a timely manner.  A lot just depends on the volume of mail going from whereever they mail the checks from.

They just did start direct deposit for IC's about a month or 2 ago.  I LOVE IT!!!!

I have direct deposit
My pay is in my account every other Saturday bright and early. They have never been late and never messed up my pay. I think if you don't have DD it arrives the middle of the week.
Direct Deposit?
Can you get your money direct deposited? That's what I do, works great.
Do they do direct deposit? nm
Direct Deposit
I don't know what's going on either. Mine is ALWAYS in the bank on Friday morning, however, when I banked at another bank before this one it was always in there on Saturday morning. This has got me confused. Seems like they would at least have let us know. Hope I don't have some stuff bouncing. I live from payday to payday with as many kids as I have.
I got my direct deposit sm
It was there when I just checked it this morning. Just thought I would give you guys the heads up.
JLG Direct Deposit
Has anyone gotten a straight answer about direct deposit, if/when it will be started again? 
Don't they have direct deposit?
direct deposit
Like someone stated, it does take a cycle or two for the DD to happen. You probably will get a paper check in the mail. With any job that I have had, it takes 2 weeks or more to get the first check. Sometimes the company will hold the first pay check and then you will get paid during the next pay cycle for the first 2 weeks that you worked. Just call before making any hasty judgments. Put on the board the company name and ask other MTs, that work at the same company, if they have had problems with getting paid. You are not putting your name on the board, just asking a general question-- this way, you can see if the company has problems with paying on time. Many MTs put info like this on this board and it is very helpful in determining what is a good company to work for.
Direct Deposit and IC

The company I work for just announced that it is unethical business practice to direct deposit paychecks for independent contractors, so they will start mailing us our paychecks which will take a minimum of 2 weeks to get.  Where has anyone heard of such a thing???  



Yes They have direct deposit. nm
direct deposit
Thanks for the information.
direct deposit
If you are talking about the Superior Global out of Plano, Texas, then the answer is no, they do not have direct desposit.  The last I heard, they were working on it, so you might check just to make sure, but I am working for them now and my paycheck is mailed out twice a month, usually gets here a day or two early.
direct deposit
Yes, Superior Global does direct deposit. I have been an IC with them for about 6 months and recently became an employee and I have had direct deposit the entire time.
Direct deposit
...because they could not keep the reserves in the bank. Huh? I don't understand. They still have to pay out the same amount of money each pay day whether it is by check or by direct deposit. I would love to know the real reason why they stopped doing direct deposit. Waiting for a paper check sucks. Then you have to travel to cash or deposit it.

Direct deposit
I have had a couple of MT companies that did not charge me for direct deposit. When my current company told me there was a $5 every 2 weeks for direct deposit, but that it was deductible on my taxes as an expense for a self-employed person, I told them NO THANKS. I hate going to the bank, but will not spend $10 a month to get the money that I have already earned at a pay that is lower that it should be. Give me the check. I will go to the bank when I run other errands to use my time wisely.
Who offers direct deposit for IC?

I have had only one delayed direct deposit and sm
we knew about it in advance. It was an outright error and they admitted it and did not try to tell us some runaround BS. The payroll person put the wrong posting date, one day late, and did not find out until it was after the cut-off time.

Go with direct deposit right away. Snail mail is too unpredictable.

I have a friend who has been IC with them for almost three years (I am newer than her). She told me that she had some problems in the past but not since direct deposit and they always fix them right away.

Make sure you have the dates right though. They threw me at first. If it is a Sat or Sun, they post on Monday not Friday. Once I knew that, I was fine and planned accordingly.

One word of advice is if you have any questions or problems, call Becky as she is the most helpful person I have ever come across working for nationals. She can find an answer or solve anything. I had a problem with a headset a few weeks ago and she had one to me the next day even though it was my fault. I thanked her and told her I hope she never leaves, and she told me she is there forever :)
and almost two years ago. Direct deposit since 9/04. This is why
so many people do not know what is true and what is not.
Do Most Companies Use Direct Deposit?
Do most companies use direct deposit or mail out their checks?
Direct deposit at Medware
Direct deposit failure? sm
I had hoped DD would allow me to avoid the pitfall of late payment, nonpayment, and short checks, etc.

Those of you utilizing direct deposit through your company, how many of you are paid late at times with the service? Is this common?

Yes, they pay on time, direct deposit. sm
Minimum lines of 11,000 a pay period for benefits. 

They are a great bunch of caring people -- best move I have in a long time.

Good luck!

Does JLG offer direct deposit?
I thought if you were IC you could not have direct deposit??
What happened to direct deposit for

Are there any MT companies still providing direct deposit for ICs?  So far every IC position I inquire about sends the pay through snail mail  and pays once a month.  What happened?  I have been turning down IC jobs just to find out the next company doesn't provide direct deposit either.

Two weeks of pay does not get me through the entire month unfortunately.



This is why they need to offer direct deposit.
Mine is alwasys mailed the day of pay day. It takes 10 or more to get to me. Not at all what I expected.
They pay weekly by direct deposit...
They were always on time with paycheck while I worked there...but don't know about editing pay. Good people, though. Best of luck!
They do not have direct deposit, so if you take the position, sm

take that into consideration.  I was told that now for $10 or $20 out of each check, you can have your check Fed Ex'd to you.  I worked for them years ago so my experience is probably not relevant, but just be careful.

Good luck! 

Anyone heard of direct deposit being "upgraded" and can't be done?
That is what company I work for says.  No notice that direct deposit was not going to be done until too late to cancel automatic withdrawals.  Wouldn't they know ahead of time instead of the day of pay day that the had to cut checks and mail them out?  Also was told too late to be sent out overnight mail and if they did I would have to pay for it ** for some reason not buying the upgrade story.
I was told by FN that their SE status (for direct deposit ) is - sm
1200 lines/pay period. They didn't say anything about 1,000 lines a day. I think I will go by what the recruiter told me.
Medware pays by direct deposit

Direct deposit every other Friday, no problem at all. 

I think most companies offer direct deposit since they may
have MTs all over the U.S.  Some companies charge you for DD, some don't.  Some companies still mail checks, though will overnight it at your expense.   I think the companies that mail checks is a fairly small number. 
Direct deposit on the 1st and 15th of the month. nm

Does Softscript offer direct deposit?
They do direct deposit on 15th and 1st of each month.
pay has always been on time or early, no direct deposit as of yet though. sm
pay has been correct. as far as accts and ESLs, i was told about 25% on my acct but i would say it is more like 50/50. you can through the system view prior reports, etc. system is different than i have worked on, but wasn't hard to learn. one biggy for me is that it doesn't use autocorrect as it isn't word based and i had a lot added in autocorrect but ShortHand is compatible. i have been treated really well, very nice people to work for. only thing i don't really like is you are an IC but have to give a schedule since it is acute care. ins can be obtained though even though IC and not bad rates.
direct deposit every 2 weeks, on Friday,
yes, they do - direct deposit every week, never late
Pay due Monday, I get by direct deposit on Friday. sm
Partly company, where most get on Saturday via direct deposit.  I just happen to have a very friendly bank who posts the minute the get it and 1 a.m. on Friday.  So sorry.  We all need to get our pay on time. 
If you used direct deposit it wouldn't need to be mailed...

never any trouble here with pay and pay is good too.

AccustatEMR's direct deposit BOUNCED....
I heard that all the direct deposits BOUNCED, even for their office staff...anyone out there got the scoop?  Have they lost the accounts they were on?  What's gonna happen to their MTs? 
Also stay away from companies that don't have direct deposit....sm
My second job does not have direct deposit and they have been late too many times already...a week late is too late for me.

If it were my only job I would've quit already.
Does FutureNet pay biweekly and do they have direct deposit? TIA
