Approves of CEO

I have been working at H&R Block part-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

There is a lot of flexibility to the job. Since I am a Premium tax preparer, I can set the hours that I work. The money is good for a part time job.

Cons

The job is a seasonal job, and the employee is rehired for each tax season. The hours are very long.

Advice to Management

Provide compensation for second looks and 1040ezs.

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

    Pros

    My co-workers were sane, fun people who were very respectful towards me and helped me learn the ropes. Working there gives you a hefty discount on classes if you decide to pursue certification as a tax prep professional.

    Cons

    During tax season, H&R hires a bunch of part time people so they don't have to pay full time benefits. Still, I was glad to be on hourly; the tax pros have it tough. They don't make a lot if they're not working steadily. Management will also try to make you attend long staff meetings without being paid for your time, sometimes pretty far away, with no compensation. (If you just refuse though, there's no consequences.) My manager also acted like we weren't allowed to swap shifts or request hours when it was inconvenient for him (again, no consequences if you just stand your ground about it in a respectful way).

    Advice to Management

    Turn some of these into full time positions, even if it's seasonal. And don't expect people to spend their free time and gas money on staff meetings.
