Payroll Specialists process employee wages every pay cycle. They work closely with human resources departments updating new hires and benefits information. Given the impact of advanced technology in accounting, most payrolls are processed online. Payroll specialists need to understand accounting software, know how to make salary adjustments, and be able to answer employee inquiries.
