Cool Seasonal Work
Income Tax Associate and Instructor (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 12, 2018
A typical day included preparing federal and state income tax returns. A wealth of knowledge was learned regarding tax exemptions, deductions and various form requirements. As a multi site worker, the flexibility was fun and each office felt like visiting family.

I enjoyed it Immensely. It was very fun to hang out with all the other number nerds. We had the same humor. We all liked to work, quietly and diligently, but when it was slow we laughed.

ok
Tax Associate (Former Employee) –  Pleasanton, TXDecember 15, 2017
The job was ok. Working for minimum wage was only acceptable with the promised "bonus." Unfortunately that bonus is reduced by the hourly wages earned. So unless your bonus is more than you earned you get zero bonus.
Pros
it was a job
Cons
bonus is a lie

Calm atmosphere working one on one with clients
Tax Associate (Current Employee) –  Appleton, WINovember 27, 2017
Learning to do taxes and serving clients was challenging, rewarding and interesting. The starting pay was low, considering the amount of training and responsibility needed. However, as you build your clientele, I am told you can make decent money within 3-5 years. Learning tax rules can also benefit your personal tax situation, so your time is not wasted.
Pros
Flexible scheduling, unlimited educational opportunities
Cons
Seasonal, low starting pay

They put time limits on everything even though some things/people take longer and some things/people take less but the time requirements are ridiculous. you pay to work for them. The offices are under staffed, there is no receptionist for a majority of the time.

Productive fast pace workplace
Income Tax Associate (Current Employee) –  Lakeland, FLNovember 23, 2017
As a tax pro you must be re-certified every year by HRB & the IRS. You learn tax law and keep up with changes.
The management is good and the workplace culture is ok.
The hardest part of the job is accepting the low pay.
The most enjoyable part of the job is helping clients meet their lowest tax liabiliby.
Pros
Work close to home
Cons
Low Pay
