WHC wants someone who wants to work for them. The future growth of the firm depends on WHC being an outstanding professional organization. Goals are professional satisfaction, a closely-knit and well-compensated staff, quality work and direct client involvement. The directors look for friendly, outgoing, bright, dedicated, hard-working people who will excel with the firm. Self-starters who are ambitious, resourceful and innovative thinkers will advance within the WHC structure.
All professional staff are expected to pass the CPA examination and gain certification within a reasonable time after joining the firm. Timing may vary for different people. As much assistance as needed is given to staff preparing for the examination. This could mean special arrangements to leave early for weekly classes or time off before the exam to study.
At WHC you will work closely with experienced personnel who will guide, instruct, explain and help you throughout your career. New staff employees also receive informal in-house training that helps you understand procedures, administrative policies and computers.
- Training: Once you begin at the firm, you will participate in programs that acquaint you with policies and procedures. Throughout your career with WHC, you will participate in programs and seminars to keep current.
- Continuing education is a high priority at the firm. Employees are reimbursed for appropriate education.
- Experience: Staff members will have many opportunities to work closely with principals and benefit from their experience. Your work will be reviewed by the principals and you will get immediate feedback.
At WHC there is an "open door" policy and everyone is on a first-name basis. This is the best form of coaching and review.
Informal suggestions may be made on how to improve skills or performance. Staff members are welcome and encouraged to discuss these items at any time with principals, mentors, supervisors or any other staff person.
Formal reviews are conducted in December every year. Your reviews are with a director or manager. Directors meet in November to review every staff member. In December, performance is discussed as well as compensation.
The internship program has benefited both WHC and the student interns over the years. It helps the firm get work done during the busy season while providing students who want to enter public accounting with valuable hands-on experience.
The internship is not "gopher" work. Interns do real work for real clients. The responsibilities added to your resume make you more marketable and the internship pays a very competitive salary. While taking an internship may require you to take a semester off, many schools give you college credit hours for the experience.
WHC looks at all interns as potential staff members. The commitment to train and mentor them is strong – it can only benefit the company as well as the individual.
Throughout your first couple of years as a member of the WHC team, you will be working with many different staff supervisors on several different types of tax and accounting engagements. You will also likely work for each of the directors at some point during your first couple of years. You will have different individuals to report to for different circumstances, and each staff member is assigned a mentor as a "go to" person.
