Various (Current Employee), Winnipeg, Manitoba – November 21, 2013
Pros: summers off, flexibility
Cons: pay, no off-season work
I have been with the company for quite a few years, and I enjoy what I do. But, there is very little possibility of off-season employment and the pay is not worth the work that needs to be done. I have enjoyed most of the co-workers while there are some that make you wonder how they get hired with their lack of everything.
Customer service rep (Former Employee), Mississauga – September 10, 2014
The day starts with logging in with computer and look it up the task for a day. Follow up with customer request and give them the pricing for our services. Handle work load and take multiple calls at the same time. The most enjoyable part of the work is that every day is different day, sometime its steady and smooth and at times it slow.Nice place to – more... work but its a seasonal job – less
Tax Professional, seasonal (Current Employee), Regina, SK – August 16, 2014
Pros: tax training
Cons: no front desk for small offices
Every clients is different, so are the cases. It's a good opportunity to apply your tax knowledge. Having reliable co-workers and good management helps to avoid little mistakes. The hardest part of the job is when you have new complex cases you have not dealt before. The most enjoyable part is having satisfied clients, who book an appointment with you – more... right away for next tax year. – less
Senior Tax Specialist (Former Employee), Kingston, ON – August 15, 2014
Pros: meeting and helping all types of people
Cons: long hours, low pay
Enjoyed the work, learned a lot about Canadian Tax Laws, and co-workers were great and helped one another. Always felt the fee charged to do a tax return was a little high, especially the fee that seniors had to pay. When you consider the knowledge required to complete even the simplest tax return the remuneration was not all that great.

Pros: interesting work.
Cons: seasonal and minimum wage
You pay for the course for the first year and are offered employment if your grades are well enough. Unfortunately it is a seasonal job. It is extremely satisfying to help people file their taxes and represent them with Canada Revenue.

Client Service Leader (Former Employee), St. Albert Ab – August 3, 2014
Pros: strong team support, individual flexability, personal responsability, helping others, team effort
Cons: season is too short
I have run the H&R BLOCK St. Albert Location for a few years now and have developed a pleasant work environment that has staff and clients insisting on my return yearly, I enjoy helping people with things they themselves find stressful and seeing the look of satisfaction when the job is completed. That applies to every job/ position I have held. Customer – more... satisfaction is my first priority and frequently go the extra mile to ensure they will consider me the next time they have a need. A happy customer is repeat and new business. It has always been personally satisfying to be the best representative of a company philosophy that matches my own personal beliefs. – less

Seasonal Tax Preparer (Former Employee), Camrose, AB – June 24, 2014
Pros: free lunches on saturday, always showed appreciation, supportive and understanding
Cons: was only a seasonal position
I can't say enough good things about this job. The people were very understanding and supportive of a learning curve and very appreciative of the work you do. When I made mistakes they were there to help me out and to learn from them, when I did a good job they made a point of letting me know they noticed. The staff and management are all supportive – more... of each other and work as a team. Everyone helped everyone out. Very fast paced work during peak season, dealing with many tax returns a day so the day went by very fast. Management would give sweet little gifts on special occasion like an easter basket full of chocolates for easter or flowers, and encouraged you to make work fun. – less
