Daily Workplace Stories

Fixed Asset Analyst

This was my first job out of college. I got the job through a friend. It was in the accounting department at a F500 retail company. I studied finance, but had never worked in an accounting job before. While I really enjoyed the people I worked with, I really hated the job. Staring at a computer for 40 hours per week was a huge shock to me. I just hated it. And I also didn't enjoy the work, as it mostly dealt with categorizing items in an archaic software system. I was pulling my hair out after only a few months, and I quit after 6 months total.
