I worked at H&R Block part-time (more than an year)

Pros

My experience was positive in that I had the chance to tell my manager what days I could work and my schedule was set for the entire time I worked there. There are also lots of online resources for help for employees to use the H&R Block-specific computer programs.

Cons

As a large corporation, H&R Block has a very rigid set of guidelines for practices for its employees. Often employees get caught up with meeting corporate standards and cannot successfully address the problems at hand. Also, it does attract a very wide swath of people and the staff certainly has characters no matter which location.

    Current Employee - Tax Advisor II in Woodinville, WA
    Current Employee - Tax Advisor II in Woodinville, WA

    I have been working at H&R Block full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedules, excellent education available, tons of opportunities to advance your career, commission based pay, shopping discounts, 401(k).

    Cons

    Mostly seasonal, commission based pay- you can earn decent money with hard work- in time, constantly changing service delivery model, really poor medical and dental plan offered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is working towards letting their store managers actually manage the stores. With the added responsibility, the company should seek feedback from the store employees and other managers in the district before completing the end of season review- a lot of managers who have a talented team are producing excellent numbers and don't manage anything.

    I worked at H&R Block part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, some benefits are nice (free to minimal cost tax preparation), downtown location in Kansas City.

    Cons

    Company benefits for a seasonal employee are not worth the money spent on them when they don't cover basics and end up costing more out of pocket than they cover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat seasonal employees, who essentially keep the company running, better....between pay and benefits, it's not hard to see why so many good people leave after a while to go to a company that pays better and offers benefits that actually benefit the employee.
