Seasonal job

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Management place the main focus on numbers rather than clients needs and employees situations. Not all offices experience the same situations and should consider what the competition are offering.

Pros

People are replaceable.

I worked at Block corporate for 7 years as a Seasonal Employee but tenure and doing a good job does not count for anything. I had great reviews and yet, when a full time position came up, I was passed over for someone young. Also, my seasonal position went from 10 months a year to 6. How can anyone make a living on a job that is only 6 months out of the year! No Seasonal jobs there are longer anymore. Pass this place up as you will be a disposable employee. They don't care about you personally. You are replaceable.

Pressure to sell

Although I had no problem in selling, I felt pressure to sell with constant, every-day emails from management to increase sale of products. I sincerely enjoyed the training and helping the clients.

I started working as Tax Prep and what I like about is this company is the highly ethics, always tell you to do the right thing. I had the opportunity to work in many fields, as a receptionist, marketing, and manager, always had the full support of the DM and it was a great experience.

Competitive environment

Initial training was great. Once in the office felt as though you were on your own. Took a while for others in the office to want to help the newer associates, even then you could feel the competitiveness.

Seasonal job

- Typical day at work: Come to the office, call the customers to arrange or confirm the appointment for tax return, doing some marketing activities; preparing tax returns... - What you learned: Updating taxes through a lot of training and need to pass the exam. The company provided extra products depending on customers' needs. - Workplace culture: diversify, friendly though competitive, suitable for retired people to get more income and enjoy helping customers with their tax issues. - The hardest part of the job: most of the customers want the tax refunds rather than owe tax. If the results turn out they owe the tax, it's not easy to make them happy with the high preparation fee. The tax associates need to go out for more new customers and more confirmed appointments. - The most enjoyable part of the job: customers are happy with the results and services provided. Tax Pro have chance to educate/ provide the advice or give consultation to customers based on their knowledge and experience. You can learn a lot from the senior staff.

Pros

Good training system, flexible time, seasonal job, diversify working environment.

Cons

Jobs start at Jan to Mid April, low paid for starter

It was a positive work environment, not all stiff and tense.

I absolutely loved working at H&R Block! The only thing I didn't like is that it was a Seasonal Job and not enough opportunities to get the education they want you to get through their systems. I've tried several times without success. What I loved the most was actually working with our clients to get the best outcome for them, even when it didn't turn out in their favour, I worked hard to make the experience a positive one.

Pros

Working with Cleints, creating connections, so much more.

Cons

Seasonal, lack of communication dealing with further education

Could use better management

Seasonal tax preparer. Company is amount making money rather than serving clients. They have a great product but need better management. Managers do NOT know taxes.

Solid, middle of the road

There is nothing great about working there, there is nothing terrible. H&R Block is a solid middle of the road, temporary seasonal job that is good for making a little extra money and padding out your resume. Most of the people I dealt with on a daily basis were friendly and pleasant. I have no real complaints about this job.

Pros

Nice atmosphere, friendly people

Cons

Not great hours, but only temporary.

Awesome entry level position

For a new graduate this is the place to be. Most offices are owner/operated. They provide schooling at your expense but its worth it. Good hands on experience.

Excellent Place to Work

Worked with a close knit bunch of people. If one had a question, we all helped. It is a challenging job, it can be fun and rewarding, you get to know a lot of people. If you earn a bonus, that's a plus.

Pros

bonus, get to know a lot of people

Cons

people who want refunds but not getting one
