On Thursday, the cast of Dancing With the Dancers is set to face another challenge: finding a new accountant.
As the show continues to grow and expand, it’s been finding more and more auditors to help with the business.
And while they’re all very nice, they’re also taking on a lot of paperwork.
But as we reported last week, the reality of auditing for a show like Dancing With The Dancers can be a lot different than the auditing jobs you might expect for a major network.
In addition to being required to complete a few hours of training and a short series of tests, auditors have to meet a strict set of criteria and meet certain performance expectations.
The most important criteria is that the auditors must not have ever been in a position to supervise, supervise closely, or perform other tasks that require a degree of expertise.
And while some auditors say they’re willing to work on auditing if it means more money, others say the show is not the right fit for them.
One of the biggest challenges is finding auditors who have the right level of experience.
“I’m a very technical guy and I think that’s going to be very hard to fill out and I’m looking for someone who’s not going to work at all for a long time,” said Robyn Leffler, the show’s director of financial reporting.
Lefflers husband is an accountant and he’s been auditing auditors for years.
He says that’s not the kind of person you would expect to be auditing a show about a dance troupe.
“I think a lot the audited dancers, they don’t really care about that kind of stuff,” he said.
“They just want to be paid a decent wage.”
For now, Leffers job is to fill in for someone on the staff who has a full-time job and is performing a few tasks on the show.
For now, she says she is doing just fine.
“It’s very rewarding to work with them because they have that level of technical expertise,” she said.
But if she had to do it all over again, Leiffler says she would be doing it all on her own.
“As an accountant, you’re basically just a sales person,” she explained.
“You’re there to help them make money and help them keep it.”
