PaYS Soldiers, have you seen the new feature in PIX?

PaYS Soldiers did you know? PaYS constantly strives to enhance every aspect of the Program ensuring the most user friendly experience. PaYS technology has upgraded the Soldier section of the PaYS website with a very important change. Soldiers now have the ability to enter how many interviews they’ve received, as well as, if and when they were hired.

Here’s how it works: Navigate to the PaYS website https://www.armypays.com and click the PIX Login menu button on the left. Enter your User ID and Password to gain access to your PIX account information. In the PIX menu to the left, click “PAYS HIRE” to pull up partner/job details. Then as you can see in the screen shot below, the Employment Consideration Details section has been added.

PaYS_HIRE

Why should you enter this information? Providing this information helps the PaYS program determine if the Army is meeting their contractual agreement by providing Soldiers with their job interviews and possible assist them in gaining employment after the Army. By tracking the actual number of interviews and comparing them to the total hire number, we are able to analyze what methods are working well for the Army, Soldiers and PaYS partners. Likewise, it also helps PaYS establish what approaches could use some improvement, for example if the interview ration is 10 interviews to one hire, this could indicate poor resumes, unprepared interview skills, etc. Resume writing classes and interview techniques training are available through other Army resources featured on the Army PaYS website.

What does an unsuccessful tactic look like? It’s true the PaYS program can open doors for Soldiers by providing a guaranteed interview; however, interviews don’t mean employment. Consider this for example: a Soldier has had several interviews, but not been hired. Competition for any job in today’s market is not to be taken lightly. However, with techniques and preparations a Soldier can increase their chances of being hired. When a Soldier inputs their interview and hire data in PIX the total numbers are used to assess how well prepared Soldiers really were for their interview.

When should Soldiers reach out to his or her partner? One important factor for aiding in the hiring process is to create a relationship with the potential employer within six months prior to your ETS date. The transition process for ETS’ing Soldiers has been extended to 12 months because the Army realized the sooner the preparation begins the better. Creating the relationship early also allows more time for the partner to get to know the Soldier and their qualifications. Building the relationship provides better chances at getting hired.

What have PaYS partners reported? Currently PaYS partners have reported interviewing 2,394 Soldiers and hiring 1,160 of them. From this we know that for every two interviews, one PaYS Soldier is hired. Now we must look at improving that ratio by better preparing Soldiers for interviews, tightening up resumes, and presenting easily attainable examples and techniques.

Enough waiting, update the PaYS Information Exchange (PIX) with your current contact information, interview history and results. If you haven’t already contacted your Partner, do it soon.

If you need to update your partner contact information contact the PaYS helpdesk at usarmy.knox.hqda-asa-mra.mbx.payshelpdesk@mail.mil or call 1-800-223-3735, extension 31222.

Help us to track the success of the PaYS Program. Every Soldier hired by a PaYS Partner is a win-win situation for all and should be celebrated.
