Why We Do What We Do

“Coastal Payroll was a breath of fresh air! We tried two national payroll companies and found the experiences to be beyond frustrating. With Coastal Payroll, our company was set up and running within a day, response times have always been great and I’ve enjoyed working with their employees.”

Angie M., Encinitas, CA

“I cannot say enough about this company; from day one they have been excellent with customer service!! I only wish I had found them years ago. Anytime I have a question or need anything I can always reach them on the phone and they always have a great attitude and will help me with whatever I need.”

Shellie M., San Diego, CA

“I’ve been with Coastal Payroll for over a year now and am extremely happy with their services. Prior to switching over I was with a large payroll company and felt like a small fish in a big pond. Everyone at Coastal Payroll responds promptly and is friendly and helpful.”

Brenna M., Chula Vista, CA

“I’ve used Coastal Payroll Services for several years after having unpleasant experiences with other payroll companies. Coastal Payroll has been awesome as far as service, personal interaction, problem solving, and timely response. Every single individual that picks up their phone is extremely helpful and answers our questions immediately.”

Zoya F., Carlsbad, CA

“We are a small business and it is nice to be given the same priority as a big business. Also the reliability and accuracy of the service is excellent.”

Alma V., San Diego, CA

"When looking for a payroll company in San Diego, I would highly recommend Coastal. Their on boarding process was seamless as I had no experience using a 3rd party payroll provider previously, but they got me up to speed quickly and effectively outlined costs associated with the service. Great company to work with!"
