    I have been working at Liberty Tax Service

    Pros

    There's an intimacy in a local franchise that you don't get when your a face in a huge crowd. The franchisee is also a friend

    Cons

    Not much. It's a great way to earn extra money and be proud of what you know.

    I worked at Liberty Tax Service

    Pros

    No pros at all. If you want the straight up truth with my experience, read the cons section. I'm serious.

    Cons

    This location is very dishonest in their hiring practices. They do not have their wavers fill out a W4. No fear of the IRS!!!! Though I asked for it repeatedly on my first day of work, they kept brushing me off, sending me back outside. To this day I'd never been paid for my work!!! It also is a very tacky looking place with large banners cluttering up the whole front window; you don't see that at more established competitors. The place was also run by kids, texting on their phones, etc. I also did not sit like a lazy bump on a log like I'd seen other wavers after me do. I put my heart into the job, moving around, etc. Terrible experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Either get new, more professional management that doesn't rip off its employees or just Close the doors!!!!

    Pros

    You get a bonus check in April

    Cons

    Managers get 9.25 10.00 10.75
    There's a 3 tier pay scale
    If it changes owners you can get your pay cut to that owners guidlines legally
    They expect you to work off the clock for free
    You have to follow everyone else and charge extra off the books for schedule C taxes
    I could go on the list never ends

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How about corporate should start making at least an 1 annual visit mid-feb before these shady owners have everyone in federal prison!!!

    I worked at Liberty Tax Service part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    great store hours. awesome contest. customers love the wavers. The company has a goal that strategically places these buildings in low income neighborhoods to increase business.

    Cons

    The rates that are charged to customers are astronomical. this company targets low income families in low income neighborhoods. calling them fast filers because they need money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    need higher pay rates. better bonuses.
