I'm in good health as we do our check ups at our clinic and that makes me so productive and enjoy working at my company
My day is always a good day because I'm working with the most supportive team where we share our challenges and work towards them to accomplish our goal as a team. I've learned so much in Accounts Payable as many companies work differently and management styles differs I've to adapt and make a significant contribution to whatever I do. The hardest part it's when suppliers phones directly your Manager and reports that you don't want to pay them whereas they have submitted their invoices late.
The most enjoyable it's when I've not lost any discounts, negotiated more discounts and have paid my suppliers on time and met my deadlines
Pros
To be recognised for a job well done
Cons
TO do filing at month end instead of filing everyday

Productive and fun workplace
Dealing with customers and very enriching regarding customer ralation skills and interpersonal skills. The management is fair but yet strickt when needed, open and warm. Co - workers where funloving and serious people, got along very well. The most difficult part of the job is keeping your head when it's very busy like month - end or with a fuel increase. Those times can be very hectic and demanding. The most enjoyable part of the job is when you actually get positive feed back from customers on a job well done.
Cons
Long hours
