Heather Reid was just awesome! We only had three people in the class which was great because my co-worker and I had a lot of questions. She was very patient and thorough. We will definitely be taking additional classes with 8th & Walton!

Alfred- IT/Operations – 5.4.21


I really learned a lot today and am excited to start making better use of the tools that I already have.

Maru- Staff Accountant – 4.13.21






Learned very helpful info that will help in deduction disputes and receiving more timely payment.

Ashely- Sr Analyst – 3.4.21


Heather was amazing and shared quite a few interesting points on best business practices. I changed my role from Sales Analyst to Deductions Analyst. Although I had 5 years behind me on the Walmart Sales end, I had no training on the Accounting end which prompted me to take the course. I found it very helpful on the Accounting end. For the most part, I already knew topics in the presentation, but it was good to fill in some of the blanks and grey areas I had questions on.
