I have been working at H&R Block as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

The best part of working for H&R Block is that the ability to move up is entirely up to you. They provide you with resources to learn more about your position and taxes. In addition, it's a great second/part-time job.

Cons

The biggest issue with H&R Block is that management can be a little iffy. Especially office and district managers. It's really all about you making their dreams come true. The way compensation is awarded to employees is very dog eat dog. Senior professionals are often hesitant to help a first year because it's about money and they rather complete the return. In addition, the district manager is inconsiderate of your full-time job and makes things very difficult.

Advice to Management

Be more organized and more flexible for your employees. Understand that people have full time work and be more flexible to accommodate those who have an income that needs to support their family.

    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
