Scheduling an Employee with Multiple Pay Rates

With TimeForge, you have access to the most powerful labor management tool around. One of the most helpful tools in TimeForge is the capability to efficiently and effectively create an employee schedule. Since employees often work different positions, and those positions sometimes have different pay rates, TimeForge gives you the ability to schedule an employee with multiple pay rates.

Multiple pay rates are approached just like a regular work schedule. The only difference is an extra step during set up. The employee will need to already have multiple positions and pay rates set up. Then, it is just a matter of scheduling that employee as the position with the appropriate pay rate.

Here’s an easy approach to setting up and creating a schedule for employees with multiple pay rates.  

Check your employee’s pay rates.

Check your employee's pay rates.
  • Log in
  • Hover over the “Employees” tab
  • Click “Employees”

Select the employee with multiple pay rates.

Select the employee with multiple pay rates.

Select the appropriate employee by clicking “Edit” on the right side of that employee’s row.

Check employee pay rates.

The employee should have multiple pay rates for different positions in TimeForge. In the example above, when this employee is working in the freezer they get paid $12 an hour, while only getting paid $10 an hour for general merchandise.

Go to the “Schedules” page.

Go to the "Schedules" page.
  • Hover over the “Schedules” tab
  • Click on “Schedules”

Add or edit an employee schedule.

Note: You can also edit an unpublished schedule by clicking the “Edit” button next to an existing unpublished schedule.

Create the employee schedule with different pay rates.

Create the employee schedule with different pay rates.

In the above example, the employee is working from 6-11 as “Frozen,” which is at a rate of $12 an hour. Then, from 11-4 as “General Merch” at a rate of $10 an hour.

View the attendance options.

View the attendance options.

If set to “Yes” in your attendance options, the above option in red allows you to automatically switch positions based on the schedule. So in this example, TimeForge can automatically switch positions at 11 when this employee switches from “Frozen” to “General Merch.”

If you make any changes to this page, make sure you click “Save” at the bottom of the page when you’re finished.
