Finance Assistant Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Finance Assistant?

Finance Assistant in Victoria:
"Goose to work every day rain, snow, or shine."
Pros: After about 12 minutes on Canada's finest cycle trail (The Galloping Goose) I am in my office. Should I decide to stop en route, I can swig down a coffee at Bows and Arrows and after work, I can stock up on beer at either Hoyne or Driftwood brewery, grab a pie from Salt Chuck, pick up some ice cream from Parachute, or continue a little past my office to Fol Epi for the finest baked goods in town. This is easily the best commute in Canada.
Cons: Being a place where the median age seems to be 60+, offices can feel a little stilted and like a blast from the past. There was a typewriter in my office when I started and printing out emails is something people do without sarcasm.

Finance Assistant in Brantford:
Pros: Payroll Admin, A/P,
