Coastal Payroll Services sees the importance in building a positive work environment and strong employee relationships. Aside from PTO and benefits, some of the perks employees of CPS love the most are the wellness program, company “fun days”, and weekly catered lunches. We believe that developing CPS advocates through our employees will have a positive impact in our work, the lives of our clients, and our community.

Our entire team at Coastal Payroll is excited to celebrate and be in honor of this recognition.  When the company opened it's doors in 2007, business partners Jonathan Gallagher and Craig Coleman had a mission to provide employers with a local alternative to national payroll providers in the San Diego area, focus on world class customer service, and always strive to bring value to our clients.  As CPS has grown from a two-man company to nearly thirty employees, we never stir away from our vision and are constantly seeking ways to better ourselves.  In the past eight years, Coastal Payroll has become a family of diverse individuals who support and motivate each other;  it is our strong culture to which we may attribute much of our success.
