Six years have past, and until now, I can’t forget the experience I had with SLPI or Sara Lee Philippines Inc (now PiPlay). It’s a manufacturing company of intimate apparel – not the cosmetics, intimate apparel like the bra and panties and girdles exported to Europe and different parts of the world. Since some are being exported in Europe, the bra cup sizes range from A-E 🙂 that’s sooooooo big. That was before, I don’t know now if they have an addition to their line of products like for instance the cupless chemise.
I was hired as a Jr. Cost Accountant in SLPI – and I can say that since it was cost accounting, I had tough times performing my tasks, it wasn’t easy. More and deeper analysis was needed. Yet, I wondered I was not able to perform well during those times, I was 23 years old then, doing various analysis like the spending, freight cost of cut parts, finished goods and etc. The analysis should be explained well to the Finance Director and I knew, I did not explained it well to her, I did not know why, one factor perhaps was that, I was pressured and daunted, I had no enough confidence to vouch my analysis. One of the seniors was always there to help me. 🙁
But I still miss it, doing the month end close and the material inventory and warehouse audit. I am not saying I wanna go back there, I just miss it 🙂
