This was a great job I am currently on furlough (seasonal worker)
but the job has a lot of opportunity when you have the proper management and people to help you along the way. I learned so much working here and I'm very thankful for the knowledge. I will say you have to have a lot of patients and not be scared to say how you feel there are some very – more... good people in management and some not so good people so its all about your work ethics and who is willing to help you lean the ropes. – less

Mail Handler/Clerk (Former Employee), Chamblee, GAJune 10, 2014
Pros: weekends and holidays off, paid time off, government assistants
Cons: contracted, can be furloughed if there is no work.
I enjoy working in this warehouse setting. It gives everyone the opportunity to talk and get to know each other. Some people are not prone to silently working, this warehouse setting gives the flexibility of an office job with warehouse perks, while still working around valuable and important documents.

Contact Service Representative (Current Employee), Philadelphia, PaJune 8, 2014
Pros: birthday lunches
Cons: night work
Answering phone calls to help out our taxpayers with their issuses and try my best to resolve it for them. I also do amended returns at night as well. I work for a very nice manager and a understanding one. I am a team player so I get along with all of my co-workers. When the taxpayers speak to me with disrespect. When I have made my taxpayer happy – more... with the results that I get for them and the thank you that they give. – less

working at the IRS
Clerk/ Tax Examiner (Former Employee), Holtsville, NYJune 7, 2014
Pros: interesting work
Cons: poor supervison
a typical day was hectic especially during tax season . But, it was not boring or dull. You had no time to be bored because there always something going on.
The co workers were supportive , but some of the bosses were much too demanding .
The hardest part of the job was dealing with my supervisor. She was very demanding and it was difficult working – more... for her..
What I learned is that hard work is not always appreciated.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the people. – less

Customer Service Representative/Tax Preparer (Former Employee), Largo, MDJune 4, 2014
Pros: free tax filling, gaining knowledge on tax
Cons: some overtime, no earning
i volunteered at VITA as a tax preparer because i wanted to help my community and i wanted to learn about tax form as it is in my field of study. i went to the site either twice or once a week. i had to help people ( with low income or elderly) to fill their taxes. before i was able to fill anyone tax, i had to take a class where i were taught many – more... aspects of taxes, and how the software works. i also had to take some tests to prove that i had knowledge fill anyone tax. their work was basically between taxpayer and tax preparer, but anyone could ask for help in case of problems as there were coordinators and supervisors on the site. sometimes, i tried to deal with people who had complicated situations that were sometimes belong our scope. i struggled for hours to fill their form. thus, i always called a supervisors or a coordinators over, and they always found a solution. at the end of the day, i felt really happy as i could learn and help someone even though i did not earn anything because those are what really matter sometimes- make a difference in people life. – less

Data Transcriber (Current Employee), Austin, TXJune 3, 2014
Pros: themed days
Cons: short breaks
Production is key in this industry.

It's great that we can choose what hours we can work, ex: night shift, part-time, make up hours.

Work is very fast paced, you must be sure to meet the standards with speed.

Its nice to always have motivation and help by our team leaders and co-workers.

The most enjoyable part of the job is when you receive your – more... daily report on how many documents you did per hour.

I've impressed management by reaching 797 documents per hour with errorless accuracy. – less
