So I just started a new job in late August doing IT work. I love the work I am just frustrated that I am expected to pay for everyday expenses. I am not talking about travel expenses (which are of course reimbursed with per-Diem). I am talking about the fact that they expect me (the IT guy) to use my personal card to order parts and software and be reimbursed at the end of the month. This isn't a problem for small things, but certainly gets annoying. It can add up and end up putting a crunch on my finances and something doesn't seem right about that. The company needs to have a better way to deal with purchases, not expect people to use their personal money for business expenses. Or am I off base to think this?
