    Pros

    Great office , friendly tax pros, met some wonderful new friends, and a wide variety of friendly clients. Decent hours too. FANTASTIC training!

    Cons

    Not much to do during slow times, pay was ok but could have been better, for training you have to drive to Des Moines, which is an hour away from me. you get paid for it, but it's still a way to go, and you get paid two dollars less for training. This was also a seasonal only position.

    Advice to Management

    I know there's nothing you can do about Kansas City, but when they triple book your appointment, please do not get exasperated at the CSP, this wasn't our fault. Also, make sure to block out a 45 min/ hour lunch for yourself or KC WILL fill that slot not giving TP's a lunch. Again, not our fault but we get in trouble for it.
