I have very good work relationships with my coworkers. I understand that people are different, and that we may work in different ways to arrive at the same solution. I understand people's differences, and I am able to to work with many different personality types. Unless the behavior is really extreme or behavior that does not belong to the workplace, then I would inform the person that their behavior may not be appropriate for the workplace, because it's quite possible that person may not realize what they were doing was inappropriate.
2.
The thing that irritates me most about other people is that they dont listen, and I handle that by just letting them finish speaking and making sure I have their undivided attention.
3.
People irritate me when they do not actually know what theyre talking about and are trying to tell me how to do my job. I deal with this by being direct, explaining what I am doing, and why I am doing it.
4.
If something irritates me I look for a solution right away. The team I am apart of should not be irritated with any of the team members because you are there to accomplish a task.

Tell us about a time when you had to defend a decision you made even though other important people were opposed to your decision.

I attended a 501 Settlement meeting which is part of our legal process. These meetings are called when a taxpayer has appealed their determination and has offered a settlement that is more than $50,000 apart from us. In attendance are the AG who would have to defend us in court, two commissioners, the division administrator, bureau chief, and the auditor (and myself, her supervisor). Without getting into details of the case, the AG was opposed to our position of declining the offer and going to court due to the tax type and arguments raised. Prior to the meeting, I had meetings with the bureau chief and DA, and had to strongly urge we go to court. Certain tax concepts can be hard to defend and there was a chance we could lose on this alone. However, even with a loss, there could be benefit in getting codes changed based on the judge's decision in order to strengthen the law. I used this same argument "upstairs". Yes we are going to court.

How do you stay focused while reviewing financial documents?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
Examining financial documents is like most other research: you are looking for patterns and following trails. When you find hints of what you are looking for, it is hard to stop until you reach a level of satisfaction that you can let go or document your findings. If I begin to lose focus, it may mean time to take a mini-break and return able to stay on task.
2.
That's easy. I enjoy looking over financial documents, it's fun to read them, and you can learn a lot about a business through reading their financial numbers and their disclosure statements etc.
3.
By making sure I zone everyone out for the time being.
4.
To stay focused I break the financial documents into sections, working solely on each part and moving onto the next. By not just bouncing around randomly I can stay focused at the task at hand.
5.
While reviewing financial documents I pay close attention to the little details because something can be easily missed and can ruin the report you are working on.
4.
How do you typically handle discrepancies in financial documents?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
I usually make a determination between are they material to the investigation or do they need follow up. That follow up can include examining additional records and personal interviews.
2.
After finding discrepancies the first step is to confront the person in charge at the financial institution being examined. It is important to be direct and explain what is missing or what is wrong with the documents and work with the person in charge to get to the facts of what is really going on.
5.
Give me an example of a project that best describes your organizational skills.

A couple of my coworkers and I volunteered to be part of the project to revise our audit manual. Our group was assigned several sections, and we were to free to get these sections done within unspecified reasonable amount of time. I took it upon myself of serve as the person leading our revision meetings for our group. I scheduled meetings and reserved rooms for our group, divided each manual section into parts so we could each work on a different part of the manual. We were able to complete all the sections first drafts within two weeks, while still maintaining our regular workload. Besides this work example, I am also the chair person for our Holiday Party Committee. Which means I have to facility assign work to volunteers regarding venue selection, price negotiation, caterer selection, activity planing, securing employee donations, plan and execute fund raising events, draft communication for all activities and efforts to the agency employees. I have planed two successful holiday parties in the last two years, and I am current working on this year's planing. I usually like to stay on top of due dates and deadlines, and work hard to meet or beat any timeline related to my work.

I was assisting my supervisor plan our grand opening for our book store. So having me incharge my job was to keep up with sales and inventory as far as what we ran out of and what new items we may want to add. I had a table that I created that has all the inventory and information regarding our profits if we sold a certain amount of shirts.
