I worked for H&R Block for parts of 3 tax seasons, and I enjoyed the work. Most of your time is spent with clients, and as you gain experience, you often gain a client base for future tax seasons. I originally took the tax class for personal reasons, and stayed on as an employee for the prospect of future discounted classes, but I enjoyed the interaction with clients. I did not see a lot of pressure to sell specific products, but the pay was based on revenues generated. I eventually stopped working for H&R Block because the district office was disorganized and I ended up working without pay when they could not get my payroll information processed even though I had been there for 2+ years.
Flexible, enjoyable work
