I have been working at H&R Block as a contractor (More than 8 years)

Pros

Seasonal work, pleasant co-workers, develop relation with clients, extremely cheap continuing education

Cons

Unpaid continuing education focuses a great deal on work done on Block's proprietary software, year round emails, updates, and expectations to keep up with Block's demands, pay for new associates is not much better than one could get at a fast food chain, grocery store or department store without needing 100 hours of training before you start work, compensation adjusted downward every year, seniority pay was taken away for anyone with less than 10 years experience with Block, too much emphasis on non-tax products...

Advice to Management

Focus on taxes!

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

    Pros

    Very Flexible, and they work with you.

    Cons

    I really haven't had any bad experiences. The clients that come in are great if you are good to them. The tax pro's will irritate you more than the clients.

    Advice to Management

    none.

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

    Pros

    Depending on management, hours are flexible.
    Helping clients understand taxes.
    Continuing Education

    Cons

    Not a full season job.

    Advice to Management

    This is more so for Corporate than management. I would suggest to Corporate by allowing less freebies and charge clients appropriate fees for services. Many come in expecting not to pay for services based on commercials seen on TV.
