General Ledger Accountant

What do you like about working at Wachovia?

"I enjoyed walking into a company whose accounting department had transitioned software in a haphazard way. The turnover of staff had left the company struggling to achieve the most basic of tasks. With absolutely no training in the accounting software, I built ALL reconciliations from scratch, identified how A/R & A/P transactions were flowing through the statements and helped educate management so procedures could be established. This was my greatest professional challenge and achievement."
