Auditor Reviews

What is it like working as an Auditor?

Auditor in Sacramento:
"Long Hours With No Overtime Pay But Secure Field And Travel."
Pros: Travel - Earn bonus points with hotels and miles with flights that I can use for vacations. Good pay. Stable secure field.
Cons: Being away from family. Management doesn't understand how hard it is sometimes. People you are auditing don't like you right off the bat - you have to get used to being the "bad guy".
