Provided me with the necessary work requirements to fulfill my co-op obligation
Office/Financial Assistant (Former Employee) – Kingston, ON – 12 May 2016
Working at Queen's was a good experience. It was an office environment with pleasant people and an overall good attitude. Prior to my time spent there during the summer of 2015, I had been working there in the summer of 2014 where my job description was mainly clerical duties. However, in 2015, I was given more accounting related responsibility upon request. There I was performing my usual duties in addition to processing cheque requisitions, maintaining office supplies inventory, and managing invoices.
There were individuals available to not only train me, but also assist me throughout the employment timeline. The main accounting software that I was using was Peoplesoft, and by the end, I was well versed in its applications. I was grateful to have been given this employment opportunity, as it was a requirement for co-op in order to obtain my degree. There was nothing hard about he job to speak of, though I did wish for more accounting responsibility versus the clerical duties where I had already gained the experience in the prior year. It was still nice of them to offer me the tasks they did, and I would consider it a good first step into my career.
