The Hallmark Payroll department is responsible for timely and accurate payment of over 25,000 employees in multiple corporations across the US and Canada. The Payroll Department is a fast paced, deadline driven work environment. There are always new challenges as we adapt to constantly changing legislation and corporate policies. We are responsible for maintaining, processing, and distributing wage payments, supplemental wages, employee deductions and payroll taxes in compliance with Hallmark policies and federal, state, and local laws. We provide related information to employees, internal and external customers, and governmental agencies while ensuring the integrity and confidentiality of data.

The Payroll Systems Analyst plays a key role in paying all 25,000 Hallmark employees accurately and timely. This includes, but is not limited to, processing multiple payroll cycles on a weekly basis. The payroll process encompasses everything from the running of pre-payroll reports, transferring of timecards from multiple sources, processing the payroll, to releasing the funds to the bank.

The analyst will also be involved in several other aspects of the payroll department including:

  • Working closely with other departments, such as Human Resources, Legal, and Benefits, to ensure all aspects of the paycheck are handled accurately and in line with policy and legislation. This includes investigating and answering questions regarding the capabilities of the existing system and sharing implications of policy changes.

  • Researching and resolving complex issues.

  • Working with other analysts on special projects.

  • Producing reports from payroll data as requested by business partners.

  • Systemically posting payroll to the general ledger and researching account reconciliation issues.

  • Sharing Payroll knowledge and expertise with other employees in the department.
