I have been working at H&R Block part-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

H&R Block does a great job with tax education because you pay only $20 fee for as many tax classes as you want to take so sky is the limit for education on taxes. If you were on your own it would probably cost $5000 or more for this kind of tax education. another awesome thing is the software they use is best in the industry it would cost you thousands of dollars to get this kind of software. yes senior tax preparers do get more accounts even entry level preparers complain about this happening but they have built these accounts over the years and have ownership of these accounts as long as you are at H&R Block.

Cons

They need to encourage more people to become enrolled agents and need to have better incentive for preparers to build their business. The pay scale could be better especially in the commission area. back in the day H&R Block had a much more lucrative commission.

Advice to Management

have better incentives to become enrolled agents and to build your business. increase commission levels not so much for entry level people but for senior people.

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

    Pros

    Client's come to you without much marketing effort. The software is cumbersome but gives good results. You can get a small discount on your own tax return.

    Cons

    After considering all the unpaid time, I only made $5/hr. I had the equivalent of 20+ year of experience. Nearly all the client's were sent to a few coworker's that had worked in that office for many years.
    The training is very basic at all levels. You won't become a tax pro.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on employee retention
