For Tax/Financial Auditors, please see Accountant
WHAT DO AUDITORS DO?
How do you make money? Let me count the ways. Auditors, also knows as material recording clerks, work with company supply chains to make sure that inventory is on route, on shelves and well-stocked. Auditors are record keepers for materials, report creators and supply trackers.
Auditors may work in warehouses, or at retail locations to see how materials are being sold in stores. Auditors are good with counting, and increasingly are using handheld devices and tablets to record data.
HOW MUCH DO AUDITORS MAKE?
The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) states that in 2010, the median hourly income for material recording clerks was $11.59, or $24,100 per year.
WHAT ARE THE EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS?
