What do you do at Schnabel?
As Schnabel’s Sr. Accountant, I mainly work on our company’s payroll taxes and handle our sale and use taxes. Since Schnabel is a nationwide contractor, I file taxes for almost all fifty states and do tax research for any changes in laws or tax requirements. In addition to taxes, I also do bank reconciliations, account receivables, report our daily cash position to our CFO, deposit daily checks we receive, prequalification for bids, and help our Project Managers obtain insurance certificates for their jobs.
What does an average day look like for you?
An average day for me is very exciting and filled with a lot of work. I start by checking our bank account to see if we received any payments online and then I interact with our Project Managers to get updates on A/R and job payments. Next, I take some time to handle the insurance certificate inquires that I receive and interact with our engineers and outside clients during this time.
