HNRY Logistics - Accounting Intern

Working at HNRY is a great experience. It is a start up company headed by business professionals, so I get to work along knowledgeable people and help build a new brand. Over the last couple of weeks, we have been figuring out how to make our day to day processes smoother. We catch different invoicing issues that arise between our two accounting systems, 3GTMS and Oracle. As we become more comfortable being our new business unit we bring in new special accounts for better accounting practice. Now at the end of the month we are reconciling 20+ accounts instead of just 5. This takes up a good amount of time and there will be a learning involved with it. 

I am also have the opportunity to partner with our HR department. We have big monitors all around our office and these monitors showcase people’s birthdays, big company events coming up, what is coming up in Kansas City area, as well as our financials from the last week. I am now in charge of putting together that slide show presentation. It does not take very long and the financials I prepare for this presentation are similar to the ones that I make throughout the week.
