The biggest mistake I made as a #Accountant at #Noongerinbusiness ...

I was responsible for taxes and all company reports. and my first month on the job I made a mistake on figuring payroll taxes. Fortunately, I was able to catch the mistake before the penalty period expired and I wrote a letter explaining the mistake and sent an additional check to cover the taxes due. After that, I put into place a rule that someone in upper management had to double check my work to insure that never happened again.

A #stressful #Noongerinbusiness day

It was a day where we had 23" of snow and most of us could not get to work. An employee with a truck came and picked me up because I was responsible for payroll and it was month end so I also had to close out the books and prepare taxes and month end reports.. The employee helped me as best he could and we stayed late into the night to get everything completed on time.

Drama at #Noongerinbusiness

I asked if we could discuss the matter calmly and try to come to an understanding that would lead to a resolution to the problem.

What I loved working at #Noongerinbusiness

It was a family owned business. I was treated as part of the family. The business was fairly small and I wa in complete charge of the financials from making credit calls, billing, payroll through taxes and compiling reports.

What's the Best Way To...... Without Jeopardizing Your Job?

I am a temp registered with multiple staffing agencies. Last week, I was on an assignment, and although the client gave my Agency/employer very positive feedback on my job performance, they ended my assignment with them due to an encounter I had with a newly hired co-worker. This co-worker had just gotten hired on as an Accounting Clerk; NOT a supervisor nor manager of any kind. In just two hours into her first day of work, and while still…

In my opinion, you should have gone to your supervisor and asked him/her to clarify the chain of command.

Jobless again

Well. I at least worked for a week. I guess I didn't cut it as fast as they wanted me too. The A/P supervisor told me last Friday that she wanted me to work as fast as the others who have been there a while. Meanwhile I told her and my Recruiter that Ithe only A/P was in expense not merchandise but they insisted it was easy. Oh well! I am 66 and I know I am not washed up .

I enjoyed working for #AccountingaidSociety because...

I enjoyed helping my clients over the telephone and I really uplifted them with encouraging words and wished them well. They have made me smile and wished me well when my asthma would flare up.

Thanks for sharing Felicia Collier - it sounds like that was a great fit for a workplace for you. How did you get started there…

Getting back to the norm

After 12 years on disability I’m getting back to work. I left as a SX auditor making $138,000 a year and even though I’ll only make $30 an hour, I’m excited to be back in my field with little certifications needed. Now I’m studying for my CIA ( certified internal auditor ) and CPA exams.
On a personal note, I’m starting back at a gym so I can get my dancer body back and lose 25 pounds to get back to 116! I’m also looking at old farmhouses on…

Congratulations on seeing the futility of being disabled. It's that wretched reclusive kind of person who you become clinging to…

How will I find a job?

i recently graduated from Independence University with an associate's degree in Business Management and Accounting. I don't have a car or a driver's liscence. I had no idea that I would have this much trouble finding a job. All of the management positions want you to have a valid driver's liscense and you need a car. i will probably wind up with a fast food job close to my house. now i am out all of that money for student loans without a…

It's too late. You are out of luck. No one cares about the national debt leading to the lousy job market that we have now. It will…

Working after a sabbatical

My husband and I moved to an extremely rural area when he got promoted and an area that was farm land and a truck stop. One year turned into four and while my career has been in business administration and general accounting I’m having an extremely hard time angling myself as an attractive candidate with this much time out of my field. In addition, some of my references are no longer with their perspective companies. Any advice?
