Working at the Enid office of H&R Block is both a pleasure and a priveledge!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Enid, OK

I have been working at H&R Block Financial Advisors

ProsBlock is a great company to work for as a part time seasonal employee. Compensation is fantastic. No where else can you earn as much in a short period of time. The training you receive is the best in the business. Co-workers are friendly and knowledgable. I am proud to say I work there. If you are going to work in taxes, Block is a company in which you can have confidence that you are receiving the best training and support available in the industry.

ConsThe only con for this job is the work flow. You absolutely push your limits for a few weeks then twiddle your thumbs for a month, then back to pushing for the last 2 weeks. But that is the nature of the business.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work! The Enid offices are under excellent management. The offices are nice and professional, but comfortable enough to work in.

Prosclose to home. I'm respected, and enjoy meeting or seeing the clients that come in.

ConsIt's only seasonal, I wish I could be there all year long.

Advice to Senior ManagementI think that the branches could be more homier ie... plants, pictures and such. Nicer furniture too.

The Best Job Ever!

Client Service Coordinator (Current Employee)
Flint, MI

I have been working at H&R Block Financial Advisors

ProsLots to do. Many ways to advance. Very friendly and trust worthy people. very flexable scheduling. Lots of hours great hours and greatv pay.

ConsMore towards the end it gets slow.Happening to deal with some of the clients that want things done there way and rate now, which has nothing to to with H&R but being a CSP we get to hear the dissatisfaction.

Advice to Senior ManagementNot so many things in the packets to give to clients they dont care and neither to the tax pros they just wnd up throwing them away and wasting paper which means wasting money..

I"ve worked for H R Block happily for 15 years

Tax Advisor (Current Employee)
Harrison, AR

I have been working at H&R Block Financial Advisors

ProsI get to advise clients on retirement issues, capital gain issues, W4 issues; even help divorcing or seperated couples decide how to fairly file for the family good.

ConsThe cient looks at me as they would the IRS when I"m informing them of consequences of the actions they have/are thinking of taking. They want me to tell them what they want to hear; not what they need to hear.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the tax preparers when considering adjusting the software. Please have the 'newbies' take the beginner class more than one year. After learning more of the 'application' they are more likely to absorb information and help knowledge mean more to them.

Tax and Financial Services... A marriage NOT made in heaven!

Financial Advisor (Former Employee)
Virginia Beach, VA

I worked at H&R Block Financial Advisors

ProsDid not push specific products on you
Had a very good bond desk, especially for new issue preferred stock offerings

ConsUpper management at the parent company was absolutely clueless on how to integrate the tax divisions and the Financial Services divisions

Advice to Senior ManagementHave someone from the Financial Services arena leading the Financial Services division... not a penny pincher from the tax division.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
