I have been working at H&R Block

Pros

Seasonal employment with flexible work schedule, which allowed you to handle clients to the best of their needs. Support for co-workers.

Cons

Very corporate, management and policies changes every year. Management is very worried about the numbers and reaching their district goals to obtain their bonus.

    I have been working at H&R Block part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great teamwork between tax preparers and client service representatives. Opportunities for advancement at employee's decision. Free tax return for employees; tax preparation discounts for employee's friends and family.

    Cons

    Seasonal position--majority of labor released on or around April 15th of each year. Employees' hours are inflexible during peak periods (late Jan. - mid Feb. and early-mid Apr.); hours cut drastically between mid Feb. and early Apr. Tax preparers are required to meet office and individual return/revenue goals for season or risk termination of employment/pay reduction for following season.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better indoor and online marketing campaigns to attract new and former clients, especially in areas of the country where inclement weather (e.g. freezing temps, snow/ice) significantly reduces opportunities to market business. Offer more attractive incentives to employees (e.g. pay increase, gift cards, etc.) who run marketing campaigns for individual office and work scheduled shift on same day or on employee's day off at management's request.

    I worked at H&R Block full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Supportive co-workers, lots of on-line self study tax courses to learn about many areas of tax preparation. H&R Block permits employees to use H&R Block's formidable software to complete personal tax returns.

    Cons

    Must be extremely proactive to be allowed to work on any but the most basic client cases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let newer employees work at their level of competence every once in a while.
