Very busy workplace that has become less personal.
Accounts Payable Officer (Current Employee) – Adelaide, SA – 28 August 2015
My typical day is to come into work early, work, work and work and then go home.
The hardest part of my job at the present is managing the large workload as we are in transition with a new system, and taken on New Zealand vendors as well. There are lots of issues to correct to allow this new system to work correctly and more proficiently. Not knowing who is responsible for New Zealand procurement is a challenge, this will obviously improve, but at the moment it is hard to be positive, it will in time get easier. Up until the new system was introduced, I was in control of my workload, I knew exactly what was happening with all vendors, and had the time to say hi to my co-workers, I was a lot more perky.
The most enjoyable part of my job is building repours with suppliers and customers, they trust that I will answer them honestly and with professionalism.
There is becoming more and more red tape, but this is a large company and it is to be expected.
I get along well with my co-workers although there is not a lot of time to talk to each other.
too much work right now and not enough time to fix issues
