    I worked at H&R Block full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Tax course is extremely educational, sets a strong personal foundation for filling out your own personal tax returns in the future; management is friendly but it feels condescending; flexible schedule; temporary employment can help those needing immediate employment

    Cons

    Management stresses superiority of products and services that are overpriced and not any better than Turbo Tax or other income tax websites; few opportunities for permanent employment; manager's meetings are waste of time

    Advice to Management

    Future profitability relies solely on software

    I have been working at H&R Block part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very good materials used in tax classes; Company offers a wide variety of classes as well, including classes that count towards continuing education requirements.

    H&R Block supports employees in attaining the Registered Tax Return Preparer (RTRP) designation, which will be required of all tax preparers by December 31, 2013.

    Flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    First year salary is fixed. It was $8.50/hr in Raleigh during the 2012 season. Associates earn commissions in year two.

    If you are looking to build a larger practice, you could do a lot better financially as a sole proprietor or an LLC. However, you would be responsible for overhead, marketing, and could be personally responsible in the event of malpractice.

    Advice to Management

    Minor suggestion: There are times where tax associates will be over aggressive in taking walk-in clients when they have scheduled appointments. The problem is two-fold: First, it denies another associate the opportunity to complete a return when they are unencumbered. Second, it can delay the scheduled appointment, which affects the service of other clients.
