Ok For A Part-Time Job

Former Employee - Customer Service Representative in Decatur, GA

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

Pros

My co-workers were nice, and the environment was pretty casual. The work wasn't too difficult. I really just checked the tax documents to make sure that they were in the correct order and that all papers were signed.

Cons

I worked in the filing room, and it was SO COLD. I've always hated the smell and taste of coffee, but I forced myself to drink it (full of cream and sugar) in order to stay warm.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A little bit more training would have been nice. The other CSC (kind of a jerk) laughed and corrected me when I didn't know the proper greeting when I answered the phone.

    I worked at H&R Block

    Pros

    Summers off, flexible schedule, short commute

    Cons

    The hiring process is awful. Everything is supposed to be email and if you don't get all of the emails for whatever reason you will be at a loss. No one calls you. If you need information about training or getting onto the website be prepared to call several different offices to be referred to a bunch of different people who have no answers for you. The training was a joke. What was supposed to be a trainer was someone who stood in the front of the room and complained about policy changes and extra workload. The tax professionals in my office had no right calling themselves professionals. They were completely ghetto, and I was actually embarrassed by the behaviors and comments I witnessed. You are on your own once you start. Don't expect any guidance, until you do something wrong. Then you'll hear about it like you were supposed to know. If H&R Block wants a reputation as a respectable, professional company, they need to pay for and hire quality people. If you have any class whatsoever, you can do much better and will not fit in here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase pay and hiring standards. Most of the employees I came in contact with were completely unprofessional.

    I worked at H&R Block full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The workers remaining are very competent and good to work with.

    Cons

    Management has cut back so far that critical systems sometimes have NO IT support.
    Executive leadership that was starting to turn the company around have all left. Current executive management is making the same poor decisions that cost customers and revenue for years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop outsourcing your core competency.
    Stop micromanaging the professional who know what they are doing.

    Doesn't Recommend
