Learn the most you can with what is given to you. If you find yourself asking for work often, needing direction, or asking for training then it is time to look somewhere else. This place is best classified as a short-term work experience 1-2 years, rather than a place where you can build a career long-term. Also, don't be surprised if your yearly evaluation is bad, this is a way for you to not get a true hourly raise and a way to "motivate you" to become better. There is no interaction with clients if you are a bookkeeper, you only get interaction as a fairly new employee if you become a tax preparer.
