Accountant Advice

Q: What is it like working as an Accountant?

Accountant in Aurora:
"Always Learning."
Continue to develop yourself and learn new things. Look for ways to improve not only yourself but people, processes, etc.

Accountant in Mississauga:
"CAREER PATH."
Hours are good, people are great, pay not so good, no annual reviews, no raise unless you ask,

Accountant in Vaughan:
"Stick It Out, It Gets Better."
I learned that school only prepares you for a very small and technical part of the career. Upon graduation, that's when the real learning begins and it gets exciting when it comes time to expand and perfect your knowledge in a specific industry, so choose wisely.

Accountant in Vancouver:
"Equality."
Make sure You and your assistant are compensated fairly.

Accountant in Sept-Iles:
"Work Hard, No Holidays, Lots Of Competition"
Pros: The knowledge you get and the discussions with the clients. The possibility of making overtime hours is good for making money. The opportunities to have a bright future if you do well is really promising.
Cons: The competition between colleagues, the high standards of the industry, the length of the courses needed compared to the wage is not good. The fact there is no unions and that you can be fired at any time (low employment security).

Accountant in Winnipeg:
"No Benefits"
That your spouse better have benefits because you get none here. Salary increases are very little (if any). Have not had a pay increase in over 5 years.

Accountant in Calgary:
"Pay attention to your gut"
Check out the surroundings and pay attention to your gut in the interview. Do not take the job in the interview, take time to think about it. Ask about the volume of work and for a job responsibility / description outline. To excel at this job, delegate, plan your strategy and your day. Adhere to deadlines and speak up.
