    working in SGV for 6 months already. I'm planning to stay there for 1 year.

    anyway, what do you mean by planning to stay there at 1 year? hehe..

    OnT: I used to work at BSP. Not in the same field as yours though, so I used to be in a different department. I heard na maraming from SGV peeps na andun. Workload: Madami. As in weekends (sat and sun) nagtatrabaho ako sa bahay.madalas pumapasok ako sa office ng sabado. (sa dept namin yun; don\'t know sa other dept). Culture: Shempre gov\'t; expect na mapulitika :) Nasa iyo na iyon how you will adapt to the culture. Benefits: Sobrang ok.

    All in all, as far as I can say, challenging ang work dito and madami kang matututunan. Expect na ma-OT siya. hehe..

    how do you apply sa BSP? walk-in ba? Na-curious lang hehehe :D
  • paggi10paggi10 Member PExer
    mas maganda yata may backer dito. May kilala ako na mag-sstay lang sa auditing firm for less than a year tapos lilipat na daw siya BSP. may "tita" daw siya dito. so i guess ganon nga ang lakaran dito. I applied for an auditor position with BSP, pero dinedma lang nila :D

    about the benefits and compensation, sobrang ok daw. pero yun nga, matrabaho talaga. expected naman siguro yun sa laki ng sweldo :)

    how true na ang bookkeeper daw dito ay 35k?? ang alam ko lang kasi 25k accountant/cpa na. nagyayabang kasi yung kilala ko sa magiging future sweldo nya :)
  • philo_buffphilo_buff Member PExer
    to kotsch: i mean planning to stay in SGV for a year or until busy season ends. talaga, ma-OT din dun? yun pa naman ang ayaw ko kaya nga i can't stay longer pa sa auditing firm... anyway, san dept ka? sana sa accounting side, hindi ma-OT. hehe. what do you mean sobrang ok yung benefits?

    to paggi10: really, bookkeeper 35000? tapos yung cpa 25000? parang dapat baliktad haha. ma-OT din kaya sa accounting dept? what do you mean sobrang ok yung benefits?

    thanks!
  • philo_buffphilo_buff Member PExer
    paggi10, yang salaries ba na yan for newly grads? how about pag experienced na?

    btw, i'm an economics grad din eh... yun nga lang inuna kong ipractice ang accounting. but actually, narerealize ko na mas maganda talaga ang economics... hehe. if ever, pwede naman sigurong ipractice yung 2 nang sabay, especially sa bsp, since connected yung 2 courses.

    ^ i agree:) .. mostly talaga ng nakakapasok ay may kakilala na sa loob. sila kasi yung may alam kung may vacant item/position sa isang department. mas mapapadali daw kasi ang processing ng papel mo kung yung mismong taga-department na yun ang magrerequest sa iyo(applicant) sa hr..

    35k daw basic ng b.0. II., basic pay ay depende pa rin daw kung anong salary grade mo..

    based from what i've heard nag - e entertain sila ng walk in pero mas maganda may kakilala ka na insider na mag ha hand carry ng application mo..

    btw, hr nila ay sa 17th flr ng multi-storey bldg nila.

    To Juntrix: ok lang mag walk in but just like what amirah said, mas better kung may kakilala ka sa loob para masabihan ka agad ng openings. In my case kasi friend of a friend of a friend (layo na no? hehe) ang nagsabi na may opening sa field ko. Pero take note, wala sa website nila yung job opening for that position. Kasi madalas nauuna na mafill-up yung position bago nila i-post na may job opening. Di lang sa BSP yun kundi sa other gov't agencies ganoon sila. So ang tanong kung di na open yung position bakit pa nila pinopost yung job opening? Kasi mandated yata yun by the Civil Service Commission na kailangan pag may idadagdag kang tao o bagong position e may kaukalang job opening na pinost para dito. something like that ;)

    to philo: I'm from IT dept. Benefits are ok kasi i believe they are offering good retirement benefits to their employees. They have good medical benefit as well and they have other allowances to offer such as transpo, meal, rice subsidy, etc. And loans can be easily availed if in case you want to purchase a house or car. Syempre nga naman, bangko sentral na yan eh. hehe

    @philo_buff

    parang baliktad nga yung bookkeeper at CPA na sweldo no? hehe. kaya nga hindi ako maniwala sa batchmate ko na nagyayabang. pero according sa source ko na kaka-retire lang, 25k nga daw ang starting salary (for new hires w/ at least 2years related experience). ewan ko naman kung panahon pa nya yun, or kahit now ganun pa rin.

    one of the best benefits na binanggit sa'kin ay yung profit sharing. siguro yung iba ay the usual na medical, dental, etc. mas malaki lang siguro ang coverage than the usual private companies.

    gusto ko rin mag-apply dito pagkatapos ko sa auditing firm. :)

    gusto nila new hires with 2 years experience na agad? hindi ba pwedeng with experience lang hehe... wala ng period limitation. ma-OT ba daw sa finance/accounting dept? or 8-5 lang talaga? sana 8-5 lang... yun kasi ayaw ko sa audit, yung OT at ON.
  • philo_buffphilo_buff Member PExer
    up up up up up
  • paggi10paggi10 Member PExer
    according to my classmate, at least one year experience daw (dahil may backer siya). sabi ng reliable source ko (retired employee of BSP), at least 2years experience, maganda na ang position na maiooffer sayo. workaholic kasi itong source ko. so it's really possible na madaming OT. napansin ko lang, yung client ko din naman ngayon sa audit, late na rin umuuwi yung mga accountants :) pati saturday may pasok pa yung iba.
  • philo_buffphilo_buff Member PExer
    so i need a backer... hehe. marami kasi kong professors sa economics nung college na sa BSP din nagwowork, probably i could ask for their recommendation. i would research pa on the working condition sa bsp... if ma-OT din ba... ganon. kasi, the reason i'll be leaving SGV talaga is because of time and energy, although i would admit that i learn a lot. actually kahit di pa 1 year ang stay ko sa SGV, marami na kong nahandle at natutunan. but i wouldn't want to risk almost all of my time and energy only for work.
  • paggi10paggi10 Member PExer
    SGV ka pala. ako kapitbahay lang. tatawid ka lang ng paseo haha. hindi pa naman ako nauubusan ng energy kasi wala pa rin akong 1year. hindi pa rin ngarag ang itsura ko. at ang eyebags ko hindi pa kailangan ipa-liposuction :D

    cge keep us posted para na rin sa mga gustong mag-BSP. ako rin, ikaw na ang lalapitan ko in time :)
  • jaz_rinajaz_rina Member PExer
    i think you don't need a backer if your a CPA. they are constantly looking for a bank examiner. and i think they are in need of IT peeps. Walk-in lang or send your resume on-line. what they are posting in there website are a true vacant positions. Medyo matagal lang talaga ang process and of course marami competition.

    i knew a lot of people who get hired on there own, meaning without backers. with regards to workload, i think it depends on what department you'll be in. :-)
  • philo_buffphilo_buff Member PExer
    isla ka pala paggi10. hehe. actually, di pa naman ako nauubusan talaga ng energy, siguro by jan-april baka maubusan na haha. let's see where the busy season takes us. akala ko kasi before sa audit firm, di naman exage talaga yung OT... pero now i know nung pumasok ako. haha. just need some training, and off i go. haha

    to jaz_rina: thank you for the response. how's the salary there? if i'll be going into the finance/accounting dept, basta yung related sa economics/accounting courses ko, how much kaya pay? maOT kaya sa dept na yun?
  • jaz_rinajaz_rina Member PExer
    hmmm.... alam ko 20+ entry level. ma-OT... i think yes.. pero hindi kasing OT ng audit firm... Goodluck
