When I first got hired from the company where I am working now three plus years ago I remembered that one of the question they ask me while signing my contract was if I want to received my pay check through direct deposit or through company checks. My husband told me to check the box where it says direct deposit because it is more convenient for me because it will be automatically deposited through my bank account. I am happy that I heed to his advice because I was about to check the option where I will receive an actual check just like old times.
The current trend these days is for your companies to directly deposit your earning through your checking or savings account unless specified that they are not offering any direct deposit. I actually find this new option very easy and more convenient because its hassle free and I don't have to wait in line to cash in my check. I love the evolution of time!
