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

Pros

You pick your own hours. You only work seasonally, unless you opt to get hired year-round. Seemingly endless opportunity for education for just $20/year.

Cons

Starting salary is pretty low. It's not hidden from you, and the incentive is that you make more as you continue to grow your client list, become able to work faster, and to do more complex returns.

    I worked at H&R Block part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent and unparalleled continuing ed.

    Cons

    Clients do not respect the tax preparers' expertise. The requirements for continuing ed were too much for what they paid you. You have to solicit your own clients. They want you to upsell things that the client does not need. Other preparers steal your clients. It's all commission based, so you might work at 4 hour shift and make $0. They pay you an hourly draw based on a percentage of last season's earnings, but any time you are in there doing nothing and getting paid your draw, it reduces your end of year "bonus"--excess of what you made in commissions over your draw.

    Advice to Management

    Relax the continuing ed requirements and revamp the payscale.
