Payroll Officer Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Payroll Officer in Penrith:
"Stand Alone Process, Management reporting, End to End."
Long Hours especially when returning from Leave as your whole job is never completed by a replacment, its much harder working stand alone as taking time off work is very hard, especially sick leave. Im 36 and I have wrist injuries due to the extreme manual processing of my companies Journals and timesheets. Stick to Larger companies with a team environment or automated/semi automated processes, everything I do is exel based and non profit entity wont spend the money to automate these. Its a thankless job, but if someone is missing $1 they will complain, nature of the beast really, and as its all about the employees income they dont care if you have to work 24hours 7 days aweek on your own it must be all correct and on time every time. Can be very frustrating at times.
