But first, you might be wondering what exactly a payroll accountant does.
Here at Sessions, we call our payroll accountants "Paymasters," and that's what our experienced team is: masters of payment. Our Paymasters have payroll down to a science. Payroll is a repetitious and often monotonous task, but it does require attention to detail and the ability to spy with your little eye anything that looks off.
On a typical day, a Sessions Paymaster is interfacing with the Production Accountants on any given television or streaming show, film or videogame. They work with the Production Accountants to receive the background talents' vouchers, process them, meticulously input the information into a database, then receive approval to start printing those checks. Our Paymasters are great at multitasking and have excellent interpersonal communication skills - two skills that employers appreciate.
