Commonwealth of PA | Allegheny County, PA

Posted Date 2/13/2020
Description The PA Liquor Control Board is seeking a highly motivated professional Accountant to join the PLCB team.  As an Accountant 2, you will be responsible for conducting audits and accounting for inventory stored in our Western Region Distribution Center, located in Pittsburgh, PA. 
If you have two years of inventory accounting experience and wish to explore a rewarding career that offers a great salary and benefits, the PA Liquor Control Board wants to hear from you.

The goal of this position is to ensure that physical inventory stored in the Distribution Center (DC) matches reported on-hand levels.  Inventory accounting ensures not only that the inventory recorded on file matches the inventory on-hand, but more importantly it addresses assessing the correct value of the inventory.  Assessing the correct value relates directly to leveling the agency's profitability.  An over- or under-assessment of the agency's inventory value would over- or under-inflate the value and profitability of the agency.  These specific skills are specific to retail accounting work, which is a separate discipline than finance and budget work commonly associated with government accounting work.  

Specific Behaviors:
Plan, schedule, and coordinate all physical inventories with inventory teams.
Verify all inventory reports to ensure accuracy and identify and verify all discrepancies.
Reconcile all reports detailing physical inventories.
Identify loss, theft, and shrinkage issues.
Reconcile close out inventories as well as confirm the inventories of opening stores.
Accounts for depreciation for all close-out, obsolete, or de-listed inventory.
