There are two clerks in this section, Clerk I is Mr. Ojang and Clerk II is Mr. Subiyo. I just did one job in this section. It was input mandore book or attendance list of labour. It will be processed by software into their salary amount.
     Member of accounting division has compactness. And they want to give us a chance to involve in  their activity/ duty. Eventhought sometime we disturb them. But That’s why we could get along with them. Even Mr. Gianto as accounting Officer sometime come to our table make a chat and joke with us.
     In General Ledger section I was involved in the job of Every clerk. I often helped Mr Suparno to input Journal Voucher. Its Voucher for non cash journal. Mas Triono trained me input cash bank data. Mas wawan also let me to input local sales and teach me how to make sales tax invoice. Ms. Budi the cashier often asked for help to prepare payment for supplier and I and Mas wawan ever replaced her in her duty to Bank Rakyat Indonesia.
       In Costing section, I learn a lot about cost accounting in PT. HIM especially in how to determine COGS.  Taufik and Putu sometime help Mr. Suparno to prepare field cost report. Mba’ Yenni train me how to input material request and store issue voucher which functioned to record inventory used and remaining. Invetory used will be allocated to the cost in accordance with the location. Even I ever help to serve auditor who asked some document.
In Tax Section, I was involved in some job such as  Make proof of income tax cut (PPh) articles 21, 23; prepare SPT (Surat Pemberitahuan) Pph 21, 23, 26, 4 ayat 2; prepare SPT PPN (Value Added Tax). Once I ever accompany Mas wawan to report SPT of all Taxes to the Tax Office in Kota Bumi that the trip toke three hours.
       And In Payroll and Insurance Section I just did one job. It was input attendance of employee from mandore note.  especially attendance of Tappers who are paid per day. Input System in Accounting Division use two software, Oracle and Microsoft Excel. Oracle is integrated accounting information system which I has learned in campus, so does Microsoft Excel. But I found different thing here. They taught me how to use them, whereas most of them are not graduated from accounting major, even not graduated from college. Hm, that’s why Imam Syafi'i said "knowledge is spreading, no matter who spreads."
