Pros: 2 dollar buffet lunch, office environment, cubicle, personal phone, 4 days 40 hours shift, early morning start.
Cons: no learning and advancement opportunity for an accounting graduate, experience doesn't count for cpa, less pay, distance, toll fee.
I worked there from May 2014 to July 2014. I was looking for some experiences in accounting and audit as I recently got my Bachelor in Accounting.
We had a small audit department and all of my colleagues were friendly and very supportive. But after working two months I found that there were little opportunity to learn and advancement. The work we used to do had little application of accounting principals. It was just day to day compliance job to make sure that the the daily revenue figure is free from error. I applied for this job at the beginning because the job requirement had said "A bachelor degree in accounting is a must". But later I found out that none of my colleague had a bachelor. All of them had previous experience of working as a cashier. Even my new supervisor was just a high school graduate and her only qualification was she worked as a Casino Cashier for 3/4 years.
At that time I decided to leave. On top of that it was costing me a lot of time and money to travel to valley forge paying 15 dollar in gas and 8 dollar in toll everyday. 12 dollar an hour was not enough to pay for these expenses and there was no overtime opportunity.
So, I resigned after working two months and how I benefited the future applicants for this post in Valley Forge? They removed the "Bachelor Degree in Accounting is a must" from their job advertise to full fill my vacant position.
