Intro Sample...


In the department I was working on gross-ups, cost reports, and running tax reports. After working in the department for a few weeks the director decided to keep me and let me stay with the department.

I would compare the file, depending on the client, and make sure that every expense was being picked up and make sure that the Accounts Receivable department did not miss anything. I worked for the Expense Department for 4 ½ years and I then was transferred to the Accounts Payable Department where to this day I still am there. Since I have been with this department there have been decision that I have made on my own with the approval of my manager and I have put a lot of thinking in this department that there were times that I just did not want to be here anymore.
