My Career at Bechtel Corporation
Gaithersburg Accounting Operations Team Supervisor (Former Employee) – Gaithersburg, MD – September 17, 2015
In 1987 I moved to MD, and obtained employment at Bechtel. Before moving to MD, I worked in a nursing home and processed payroll. I started in employee accounts and during my 8 years at Bechtel I received many promotions,each coming with new responsibilities. The managers noticed If you were a dedicated employee, proficient, worked well with your co-workers, you had the opportunity to advance. Bechtel also had flex time, you could start 2 hours before or 2 hours after your regular worktime.
Before receiving a management position, I had already had experience in Employee Accounts, Accounts Payable, Payroll, 4782 forms and W-2 Corrections. During my supervisory time I took on another challenge. I now needed to understand Billings. I helped out in General Ledger, when time permitted.. I enjoyed the opportunities to be able to learn all aspects of Accounting. To work with a large Accounting group. The hardest part of the job was keeping my staff working together as a team, Balancing the workload for each employee. My team consisted of employees that processed accounts payable, employee accounts, and billings. Unfortunately in 2005 Bechtel moved the Accounting Department to Phoenix Arizona.
