My workday (8:00 am to 4:30 pm) began at the very moment I scanned my work badge in.
Unlocked front lobby window, turned on computer; logged onto MS Outlook and SA Menu.
I sorted out the job files that needed billed that day which averaged 80 each day. After invoicing them, I emailed them and then closed out every job.
Went to lunch (1/2 hour).
Opened up accounting program (Oracle) and started entering accounts payable invoices.
Additional daily responsibilities: Opening and distributing US mail, scanning, faxing, copying; assisting with travel needs, lunches, organizing meetings through MS Outlook Calendar.
I learned a great deal about StandardAero's day-to-day operations. Was trained on their accounting program, Oracle. Their management staff were all wonderful, helpful and intelligent.

The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing I have completed everything that was expected of me to do.
Monthly All-Hands Meetings (Free lunch, status of SA's financial goals and quarterly bonus program.
The company in years past had a small business feel. It didn't pay the best, but the structure of the company and home like feel kept people around. Lately however it feels cold and corporate. Job security is no longer a good feeling and the pay has remained poor.
