Description

 

What does the life of an automotive controller look like? It’s different every day! Ask anyone who has worked in the accounting office of a dealership, and they will tell you there is no monotony in the accounting office. Some days you spend your time knee-deep in daily accounting work, while others are chasing down issues created by someone changing a process that had a ripple effect through the store. On another day, you will be asked to forecast and budget, or take on a special project. You will work hard and stay busy but will have a deep sense of satisfaction of a job well done. You will learn how complex automotive accounting is (if you haven’t done it before) and love it for the complexities.
