Are you set for the correct time zone? What about the system clock - is it set to UTC or not, and does the OS know that? Is the inaccuracy consistent, ie always 2 hours slow or always december of 1970?

The easiest way is by syncing your clock with an internet source through ntpdate. Here are the steps to install it, enable it on boot and start it.

yum install ntpdate
systemctl enable ntpdate.service
systemctl start ntpdate.service

chrony runs by default. I don't think this is the right solution here.

It works for me, so in my opinion a proper solution. I never had any time problems again after installing ntpdate.
