some auditors, especially the young ones who graduated with excellent grades, can be quite $&@!. I had been the other side of the fence before and hence, I normally would be cooperative, especially if I understand and agree with the audit objectives for having things done in a certain manner.

However, some newbies can be sooooooo @&$!? Somehow, I always get this impression of them - they wear the "what... I auditor ok!" hat.

Had I not known the manager (that guy I had worked with for several years) all the way back when he was an audit asst, I wouldn't dare to pull the "tell your manager to come and see me!" :wink:

Then again, I know clients who are real horrible. Auditors ask for eg GL for a few accounts. Client gives...... In hard copy, font size 6! You know how many transactions? 5-6 thousand lines! :slapshead:

Super jek ark.



:rotflmao:

I very the good client, very cooperative too. :smile:

The "best" experience was to be asked for bank reconciliation. I was sooooo stunned! Cos the company didn't have bank account!!! The auditor didn't have the sense to think if asking for bank recon is appropriate. At debrief, it was brought up by the partner that bank recon not provided. I told CFO and the partner Kenna instead.

Just becos auditor doesn't mean always correct.

They said give them 1 mth to get back to me. Then no sound fm them, called a few times couldn't reach the social worker...

There's a MINDS q.near my place, maybe I can make some enquiries...

My dad's situation these 1-2 yrs shd be q.stabilised, beyond that hard to say. Anyway, I only want to volunteer once a week, not everyday lah. :smile:
