Does it work?

this app is an app! Does it work? Short is yes. Is it productive? depends if your what your looking to accomplish. I work with Pepsi who is huge for Workday. Workday is the most pointless app I have. It’s frustrating for login, you are not permitted to store your login information on your phone. It has not made life simpler or better, work or personal. It hasn’t beat paper checks, but it saved a tree I suppose, since trees don’t regrow. It did how ever allow us to see everyone’s ID numbers. Good Job! It has also allowed for companies to become less personal with their employees for asking for time off and vacations. You use it to clock in and out? For what? Because redial was too complicated. I’m not sure how this app was described as intuitive. Its not there. All it is, is a way for some computer company to make money and a corporate dummy to think it was a great idea. Overall Workday offers nothing but a way to see your pay stub since we don’t use trees for everything else. I hate not being able to see my deposits online through my bank. Pepsi is a good company to work for but this was a poor decision! Lastly if it was so great why is this app making posts? There’s more to type but too much to write. I hope you don’t have to use it.


I can’t even.

I don’t know the problem is but I’ve had it with Workday. It worked fine for me for a couple of months and then somewhere it went to hell. I use it to clock in and out for work and a month ago it randomly (or so I thought) stopped recognizing my password. You can’t retrieve your pw and to change your pw you have to know your current password which I do but apparently the this app app doesn’t agree. I couldn’t get in on the website either because it wouldn’t recognize my pw. A couple of days later IT was able to reset my password which I wrote down. Two weeks after that, same deal. PW randomly stops working on the ap and I can’t log in online either. After 2 more days of not being able to clock in or out of work IT gives me a new password again. I went to the Apple Ap store and looked up the version history for Workday and compared it to my IT call log and yup, for the last two times when they’ve updated the version it somehow fubars my password or whatever madness it manages to do. I’m able to log in with my new password on the this app website but not Workday because it still won’t recognize my password.


Not great

Too many “clicks” to get where you can see the whole picture.... for techs it’s frustrating for managers it’s so much of a hassle I’d rather do it all by hand! The worst part is the time crunching for techs. Looking to approve on call work, PTO time off, holidays, and/or instances of working outside of or longer than the normal work day schedule is nearly impossible. I used to be able to pull all of my techs up on a two week calendar view and review everyone’s time cards in one go, or drill down to individuals as needed. Now I get a date to one side that will skip around time blocks for PTO, weekends or holidays without showing why there’s a gap there unless you read another section somewhere else that says PTO was taken... good luck find that time off easily because that’ll take you three clicks to find on another screen that you have to write down or memorize when you go back to the time card you’re trying to approve. In short this program needs a lot of work to be easy to use.


This app it the worst

I truly believe the new CEO of our company has some stocks in Workday. It’s very confusing. It takes forever to log in at work. It takes forever to clock in or out. I don’t know how to use my Holliday pay. I can’t figure out how to put in person sick time. I am Not sure if I am actually getting paid for the work I do. The pay check comes to me up to 3 days late now. I don’t need all those different icons ... just let me see what hours I have to use, what I have used, and how I can apply my earned paid time off or vacation pay. I can’t fine any brake down my weekly checks? Did I get the extra money from open a CC? Or did I get cheated? Why didn’t the managers go through this as a new system update so we know how to work it? Very user UNFRIENDLY! Terrible system. I don’t know where to turn for help. HR? Labor Board? The ASM at my store made it very clear we could not ask questions about this at work unless we punched out of work day. I wish I could give this 0 starts! Terrible Terrible system!! 👎👎👎👎👎


Interface not user friendly

Workday 's interaction is completely optimized around the underlying database structure, rather than user needs. Entering time sheets in incredibly laborious -- click on Time Type and wait of a menu of generic time types to appear. Select a time type category, and wait for the system to query the members of that query. Finally, you get to type your value, but don't expect common patterns like Google type-ahead to search as you go. You have to wait again for a server search for potential matches. And once you enter your time entry, if you decide you need to change the category, the this app app erases the hours field that you entered before, so hopefully you've remembered it. And don't even get me started on expense reports. I sorely miss Expensify and Forecast, which we were using before our corporate office made up standardize on this app. this app is definitely a product built for the convenience of the engineers who auto-generate this horrible interface -- not for their users.

Not user friendly for Administrators

As an Administrator, I supervise Supervisors and their staff. I have to provide coverage and need the ability to print out staff timesheets to which there is no ability for me to print timesheets of staff 2 tiers below me, only those I immediately supervise. Additionally, the preview pane does not provide all the necessary info. needed to approve timesheets (ie. for worktags required for teleworking status); therefore, I have to first go to all staff, then go to my org chart, then find the staff, click on review timesheet to check worktags, and THEN go back to approve timesheets. And I should add that when staff have to print their timesheets for me, the worktags don’t print out. Awesome! This seems completely unnecessary. This review is primarily for this app in general, as Workday offers even less options that make it even more user unfriendly.


strongly dislike this app

I used to be able to download my pay stubs not print so was not killing trees. Anything I seach for like pay stubs as they are hard to find gives anybodys name that works for or has worked there with the word pay. What in the world it is oneof the biggest things it is supposed to be used for. Then when you do find it it is the worst layout ever. Example 1. 100 dollars for hours worked yet no idea how many hours that was would have to do the math to figure that out. Example 2. At my company we earn PTO by hours worked my old pay stub would tell me how much I earned this pay pieroid now I just get a lump some of my pto bank not quite as usefull for me to make sure it is actually the right amount. I feel more Vulnerable to hackers as now they just have to hack one app to get thousands of peoples Info and still IDs. I trully hope your company will not force you to use this useless hard to use app.


Don’t work

I have good internet and phone service but Workday won’t even load no matter how long I wait. It would ask me to login at the beginning and after I pressed login it ask for my organization / company name. I input the name and it showed a green check mark. From that point on it show a blank white screen with three dots loading. No matter how long I wait the screen stays the same. I reinstalled Workday but the problem is still the same. I have used multiple phone to see if it will get fixed but the problem stayed the same. I can use the web version, but I can’t check everything there. It will be helpful if this problem get fixed soon. Another suggestion is we should be able to check our schedule and hour we work on the web version since Workday won’t work. I can’t even load Workday so I don’t know how am I supposed to check my schedule.


Workday - NOT A FAN

Our company switched over to this app about 5 months ago. After using it as a manager for employee time, absences, performance reviews, promotions, recruiting, etc., I have to say this has got to be the least user-friendly HR application I have ever used. The form pages don’t flow naturally and the error descriptions are not very helpful. Approvals are another headache - they seem to go in circles having subordinates approve manager actions, then still having to approve the manager action after that before going on up the chain. It’s wasting a lot of time and is very confusing. Worst of all, the confusion is causing inaccuracies in the company’s and employee’s records/data. I thought after using it for awhile that I might get used to it. But I find it more and more frustrating the more I use it. I wish we had never switched to this app and I’m not alone in that opinion.


Too Slow!

I enjoy this app about as much as one can while doing expense reports. It’s user friendly and I’m thankful that my company uses it for finances, Human Resources, etc but the time that it takes for things to load could drive me up a wall. A simple task that should take 5 minutes turns into a 30 minute ordeal with the majority of the time spent with me screaming at the loading bubbles on the screen. Also, every now and then I just get kicked out. Whole app closes and returns to home screen on my device. I have to log back in and luckily my work is usually saved as drafts to pick up where I left off. Just seems like a little glitch I could do without. Other than these couple issues, thumbs up.


Great features but no noticeable updates

Plenty of good features have come out but the updates I feel don’t do anything. I’m not sure why I have to still set up my pin/Face ID every time I have to reset my this app password or why I have to turn back on Push notifications for clocking out every shift. I also don’t get prompted to religion after changing my password after Workday . After a day or two it’ll have me sign in while I’m rushing to clock in. There also needs to be a notification that my password needs to be changed soon instead of a surprise redirect when I try to login into Workday for the day (again while rushing to clock into work).


Meat Cutter Highlands Ranch CO

Work day along with all other Whole Foods applications have provided me with transparent communication from the company I dedicate my time with, working here for now approximately 2 months I have seen a dramatic change in overall operational standards in the meat department, my observations & views are also taken into consideration when dealing with the unprecedented Covid19 virus. The management team at my location truly does care about the safety & wellness of everyone who enters the business. I am appreciative for my part I perform here at Whole Foods to be in part of a greater cause we make in our team of exceptional employees & our community service.


Works flawlessly for what my job use it for

I can understand the negative reviews, each this app app is different and set up to the companies standards. My job doesn’t use Workday to clock in and out, we still clock in the ole fashion way, badge and kiosk, we use this app to request time off, and keep up with our PTO balances, and view/ print paystubs. So basically no problems on my end, password is saved automatically and Face ID works. I’ve had to re login quite a few after the updates, but long as your password is saved in keychain(iPhone) you want have no problems logging back on and reactivating Face ID.


Workday Review

In my experience using this app for learning about working here at Brooksby Village Home Support, I found it simple and effectively informative for myself and my fellow employees. It is an effective tool to use for any position here at Brooksby. It is simple enough for any employee to use. My favorite part about this app courses is that you can stop and return back to the place left off. This makes it so employee’s can take these courses while on a break and return back to the initial phase of the class if necessary. I would recommend taking this app courses for all employees of Erickson Living. Sincerely, Wendy Bates


Convenient, but not intuitive.

It’s nice to have this with you at all times as an app on your phone. But if you put in a start time of 8 o’clock, and the time happens to be 637 when you’re doing it, the end time automatically is at 37 minutes. It would be nice if there were an easy or quick way to automatically get that minute to :00 or :30 since most people start at the top or the bottom of the hour. Then at the out time, it does the same thing. It should into with that if I started at in o’clock, I’m going to end at an o’clock. But there’s that 37 again. It’s not a big hassle just an unnecessary inconvenience.I would think Workday would intuit that my end time minutes column is probably going to be equal to my start time.


Time off

Workday and the program in general is a joke. If I go to put in a request for time off and make an error I can’t just go in and edit it. I have to wait for who knows how long then go and cancel the request then make a new request. There are too many steps to just request a day off. As a supervisor this makes things very difficult when staff make errors on requests that are for the same day. The old digital system we had for time off requests worked wonderfully, but this one makes me want to rip my hair out. Worst thing is clearly the people at this app don’t care to simplify things or take input to improve Workday . As I’m going through and reading some of these reviews, I see that they have only followed up on a select few which shows they only want corporations money.



When given a task to change an employees status, the ability to edit the errors does not work at all. This makes this app very frustrating and we have to submit a ticket to our service center for theses changes. Further more most of the reasons we have to transfer employees back and forth is because this app has moved an employee for no reason. It’s very frustrating and way to time consuming with no ability to clear the task through. Not sure if it’s this app or something within are corporate errors but it’s very inconvenient and causes a lot of issues.


Time off confuses it

this app can't wrap its digital brain around somebody taking a day off. It can't figure PTO into whether or not you have entered your time for the week and gives me an error if I try to submit less than 40 hours because I had a day off this week. And heaven forbid you take a whole week off! It absolutely can't handle 0 hours worked in a week and bugs you and your supervisor and your HR manager with all kinds of emails and in-app messages saying you need to enter your time for last week or you won't get a paycheck (meanwhile when you go to the PTO page it shows 40 hours of approved time off). This is what happens when different parts of Workday are designed by different committees that don't talk to each other.


Clocking In/Out Shouldn’t Be So Complicated

Can this app hire me to create their clock in/out process and what it would appear on screen to users? The current one can be simplified by reducing the number of windows and screens that users has to navigate in order to clock in and out for the day and breaks. Also, just make it plain and simple by listing “check in time”, then a row below that would be the “15-min break”, the row below that would be “lunch”, and finally the row below that would be the time you clock out for the day(“out”). Instead, it currently shows as an example: 8:00-8:31 (meal), the row below shows 9:01-2:15 (meal)... not efficient. Each day I get confused because that’s hard to read, I end up making some mistake as a result, then I email my supervisor to adjust it to the correct time which is a waste of her time. Please fix this, thanks!


Consumer Like App Experience

This is the most useful and easy to use business app at my company. Everything about my pay is available at my finger tips. Time is easy at my company but I don’t know how others have configured their time tracking bc some of my coworkers in different jobs have a different tracking views/ways to check in/out. I also can complete learning courses and review my team members on mobile. There is even automatic expensing with a photo of a receipt and my manager showed me his financial performance dashboards. Very cool.



I like Workday and that I can access it from my phone rather than just while I’m at work. One thing would like to see is being able to manage my direct deposit a little more freely from Workday . For example if I have my income directly deposited in to two separate accounts I would like to be able to manage how much I would like in each account at a moments notice with a tap on my screen rather than doing it the hard old fashioned way and calling the corporate company and it taking weeks to make a slight change.


Simple use, difficult log in...

I am unaware of the multiple uses of this app. My primary use of Workday, and the primary use explained by my job site, is for viewing paychecks. Our paychecks are direct deposit and this is our only access to view deductions and payments. I have never had a single attempt for an easy log on. The PIN number access changes, the password changes, we’ve gone to an additional Authenticator app to got thru to this app that times out before you can get number and get back to this app, and have access denied. I recently made many efforts to write passwords and keep track of the many changes this app puts me through to view details of my paycheck. I voted one star only to make sure my comment gets a post. If you’ve read this far, zero stars is my true rating.


Can’t save login information

I have no problems with Workday itself other than not being able to save my login information. I constantly have to be sent a text to verify my identity and go through the laborious trouble of having to re-enter my information. It would be very convenient feature to be able to save my login information to not have to go through this process every time. It takes a long time to finally get into Workday . If there is a way to do it I have not found it, I have looked at different areas of Workday . If anyone else knows of a way to do it please let me know


Built for the future

To be transparent. I’m a this app employee. I’ve spent the past 17 years working within the enterprise software industry. What I’ve learned is that technology changes rapidly. Institutions need software that can adapt to new technologies as they are introduced. I use this app at least a couple times a week for processing expense reports. Recording time off and managing my performance evaluation among other critical functions. I’m especially interested in using new functionality to support learning and the budgeting and planning process. The products are great! At this app we call it the “Power of One”. All customers are on ONE version of the software. There is ONE elegant user experience. ONE in memory object data model. ONE security model. ONE business process framework. ONE integration platform. It’s the “Power of One” that is different by design. Enjoy, and have a great this app!


Not intuitive

Using Workday to request time off is enough to deter anyone from wanting to take time off. Workday is not intuitive, it runs very very slow so it’s not just a few taps to request time off; its tap, wait for something to load, tap, wait another minute, tap, get an error message. And trying to fix a mistake or add a comment? There are multiple places to add comments and no easy way to fix a mistake in your current screen. You have to back all the way out to the homepage to find where it’s stored then go through about 3 different screens. And be careful when pressing buttons because your ‘submit’ button isn’t the one most convenient, that’s the back button that doesn’t do anything. I hate Workday.


Won’t print since last update

I think Workday overall is fine except since the last update I’ve lost the ability to print from my phone. I won’t to keep paper copies of my paystubs and other vital info for my own records in case digital records are inaccessible when I need them. The first time I printed from my phone no problem. Now no forwarding options(email, print, etc) function within Workday yet others work fine so I’m convinced the issue is exclusive to Workday since the latest update. Otherwise I’m happy with this app and not concerned about my company no longer sending me a physical copy of my paystub.


Orthopedic technologist/Cleveland clinic Akron general orthopedics

Work Day is wonderful but when the training came out for Work Day is sad a lot of us did not get to go in the training I think if a lot of us got the opportunity to go we would’ve definitely figure it out the bugs on it but we’re finding out as we go through this we’re have to learn on the girl he deafly need to give a Refresher course on it so Employees don’t have to go through this like your blindfold it it would be helpful to all employees. Yours truly. Ricky Allen


Useful tool

I enjoy having mobile access to some important tasks for work. I’m able to submit timekeeping to the minute because of the mobile access. Able to see pay slips on the go and work with my leadership remotely. Only flaw would be regarding timekeeping that sometimes Workday will tell me there is an error when there isn’t one. Eventually it goes away but it does redirect me to correct entries that don’t need correcting. Small inconvenience but I have faith that the this app team will correct it. Thankful for Workday and workdays partnership with my company.


Confused Workday HRIS Mgr

I’m over this app at my Company. I’m confused. this app 30 is coming tonight/tomorrow... and I thought community said Workday update was today—and your pics show the 30 version, but Workday update I have is not changed from prior version. No frequently used apps, no navigation bar at the bottom, etc...Why does this download not match your screenshots?? Workday is descent, could be much better. Until WD can do geofencing or distinguish between mobile and web time punches, we can’t use time entry much at all. Our managers actually just use the mobile website more than Workday. Many things - it will tell you it cannot do in Workday when you get them in your inbox.


On the go - keep employee and candidate processes moving

As a supervisory org/hiring manager and recruiter, I find the mobile platform exceptionally convenient to complete most tasks. Tasks like approvals for hire/terminate, performance management reviews, new requisitions, new position among many others all done on my smart phone. Also from the recruiter/hiring manager role I can review, change status, update interview results, and eventually submit for offer letter, again, all through my phone.


Time Entry Option Needed

I like Workday for everything it allows you to view and do within it. My only complaint is that you are only able to view the hours you have worked or entered on a computer or other device, and that you are unable to perform any time entry operation here. If that was made possible, it would save a lot of time spent getting into the program via a computer. If that was changed, I would update my rating of Workday to 5 stars. Otherwise, again I think this is a great and helpful app.

This software is garbage. The app is garbage P.C. Apple and Android. Employees can't access their own Employees into outside their place of work (with the help of H.R. personal and a tech on the phone) from what I understand this software was supposed to make it simple for all who used it but that's not happening at all. This whole thing needs to be scraped and start over fresh. Or perhaps have H.R. department actually do what they get paid for

Have a Problem with Workday? Report Issue

Leave a comment:

Why should I report an Issue with Workday?

  1. Pulling issues faced by users like you is a good way to draw attention of Workday to your problem using the strength of crowds.
  2. We have developed a system that will try to get in touch with a company once an issue is reported and with lots of issues reported, companies will definitely listen.
  3. Importantly, customers can learn from other customers in case the issue is a common problem that has been solved before.
  4. If you are a Workday customer and are running into a problem, Justuseapp might not be the fastest and most effective way for you to solve the problem but at least you can warn others off using Workday.
