When an acquisition happens and the presidents of the company aren't present
Staff Accountant (Former Employee) – Madison Heights, MI – November 9, 2018
In May 2017 Mar-Tec Industries were acquired by Knoll Germany. The phase out was taking place when I first arrived and KG had full control of the company with strict guidelines that were uncharacteristic in regards to an America corporate operations. When I first started at Knoll America, Inc. I was mainly in charge of invoicing and payments. A month after I started the company realized that I had the potential to do a lot more than AP/AR functions. They began to treat me as an accountant/team-leader. I was the only accountant other than the VP of Finance who at first handled main accounting functions. Once I arrived, I saw that she was overwhelmed with work, so I offered to lend a helping hand. As the trust grew, the more responsibilities were given to me such as making purchases, setting checks and balances, GL, inventory, bank and credit card reconciliations, .
Family-like atmosphere for the most part of the 12 employees in America.
Poor management of inventory & sales in terms of operations, no in-house manufacturing available and always being short on parts for repairments.
