The right candidate shall be self-starting but must also be able to take directions and be a goal oriented person. We highly prefer residential real estate accounting experience and commercial accounting experience with CAM experience a big plus. Many residents are not bi-lingual so being able to speak and understand Spanish is desired.
Your base of operations shall be at our Beverly Hills office (though this could change in the future if another location is purchased / leased) and your field of operations is Los Angeles County with the possibility of expanding into the surrounding Counties (such as Orange or Ventura).

$13-$16 hourly based on experience ($15 mean). Do not apply if you "want to make $20/hour" or "$40,000+ annually to start."
This position is a cross over position. Not only will you handle accounts receivable (the primary duty), but you will also handle bill entry, some payables, reporting and more. We will stretch your capabilities and if you shine, you will be compensated for it based upon what you bring to the table and what the firm's financial budget mandates. We support growth, continuing education and merit.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
