Busy, yet productive days, occasionally stressful, but good stressful when getting a project completed, meeting deadlines and working as a team.
Pros: free goods every other month
Cons: long hours, days, many evenings and weekend work - not enough working on the 'retail accounting' team
A typical day means working with Retail store management and managers, as well as corporate departments on any issues that may have come up (credit card issues, inventory issues, sales and tax monitoring). From working with the Retail store management team as well as with corporate departments (treasury, tax) we learned how to make it work for all involved, meeting deadlines, reporting store activity with integrity, communicating with all involved. Co workers within the Retail store management teams was easy, since we all had the same goals and objectives (opening stores on time, with all that is needed for a store to operate); the most difficult part of the position was trying to work with others who were not part of the retail team and who did not have the time to understand what was going on. The retail environment is very exciting and very busy - but working with the teams and getting stores opened was the most enjoyable part of the job.
