The company offers minimum health coverage as stipulated by law. Employees qualify for 401(k) and ESPP once they work over 1000 hours. For seasonal employees most of the time they won't make it to the hours unless they are tax experts who write over 500 returns. Company matches 3% for 401(k) which is pretty decent.
I am not sure of anything regarding the benefits package at this moment. Seasonal tax preparers are offered benefits packages if they meet a certain criteria. There are professional development opportunities through the extensive tax courses and CE courses taught by H&R Block employees, instructors, etc.
Employee's can do their own taxes for free, but the amount it would have cost is then taxable to the employee. You can take unlimited classes for $20/yr. Job training- they have some great idea's; terrible execution. You do qualify for 20% or so off your mobile carrier. The pension/401K plan is only available to Management and up. The Health/Dental/Vision coverage offered to seasonal employees is a joke. You can apply for up to $500 lifetime max tuition reimbursement. They did offer stock options once during my 14 years, but the option price was higher then the open market price.
No free benefits package is included in wages.
Increasing costs of health care, but the vacation package is pretty good. 401(k) with matching, ESPP, and group life insurance and disability too.
There is no financial benefits package for almost all employees. It's seasonal so most can't work enough hours to qualify for the 401k. No health insurance or other insurances offered.
You do not have the option to get health insurance if you are a seasonal employee.
Best thing is, for the most part you can work as many hours as you want, and overtime is possible. Worst thing is, it is only seasonal, but good for those that have a steady income (those that are retired, disabled, etc... ) but still want extra income...
401k, paid holidays, paid sick days,paid personal days
These plans for tax pros are very hard to qualify to have. There is a specific amount of hours required to work in order to qualify. Many won't even know how these benefits are because many don't qualify.
