Payroll Administrators, also known as Payroll Managers, oversee the daily payroll processes of an organization. Example resumes in this field indicate duties such as creating database reports using Report Smith and Excel; processing medical benefits, garnishment, and 401K plans; and processing biweekly payroll for three multi-state and multi-location companies consisting of 1000 employees. Sample resumes show that Payroll Administrators typically need to hold at least a bachelor's degree, but some employers may instead seek applicants with master's degrees.
