Same boat here

The only thing I can say is that it seems like most of the work is compilation and s-corp taxes. The hardest thing is getting the information we need from the clients. I am stuck at a basic bank reconciliation because I only have the last month's statement and it doesn't seem like anyone has reconciled this particular account before.

It is funny that there are two threads about the same subject within the last couple of days.

Congrats on the new job. If I were you I would just read as much as you can and ask a lot of questions. Just be receptive to all the information coming in and you will be fine.
