Great work environment
Receptionist and Tax Associate (Former Employee), North BayJune 2, 2014
I loved working with my co-workers and meeting new people at the front desk, helping clients with tax questions both over the phone and face to face. I very rarely ran into problems but when I did I knew to ask my co-workers and get the problem dealt with. Clients were very friendly you got the odd one that just wanted to get in and out and not communicate – more... very much but you still have to smile and be nice. – less

Almost feels like its not a job.
Receptionist (Former Employee), Merritt, BCMay 30, 2014
Pros: all the goodies to eat
Cons: the not so great clients to deal with.
As soon as I get there I do filing. Then there is calling to do in which I would call clients reminding them they have things to pick up or letting them know their taxes are done. Later in the day there is money to be deposited in the bank and mail to be dropped off. I learned how to deal with people, and communicate more with others. My co-workers – more... were so helpful with every question I had. My boss was probably the best one I'll ever have. The hardest part would be first starting out and learning which papers to fill out, where people have to sign, and explaining what it is exactly that they are signing. You get the hang of it after quite a few people come in. The part I liked most about the job was the cookies and baking that some of the co-workers would bring in. – less

I learned alot about preparing income tax for clients. It was a very good learning experience for me. I had a good team to work with everybody helped each other.

Tax Professional (Former Employee), BramptonMay 27, 2014
Pros: enjoyable job, new experiences
Cons: short hours, challenging job
Work started at around 10 a.m. I had to file personal and family tax returns to the CRA, prepare instant refunds, issue debit-cards and bank drafts. I had to provide customer service giving necessary information and help guide clients make the correct financial decisions. I had to also collect payments and manage files. The coworkers were cooperative. – more... The management was helpful. The hardest part was dealing with client brought fake documents. But the most enjoyable part was meeting new clients and experiencing new problems. – less

This is a good job for those who do not need to work year round.
Income Tax Professional (Current Employee), Niagara Falls, ONApril 26, 2014
Pros: work around your hours of availability, and there are bonuses for goals met.
Cons: hourly wages do not increase appropriately and bonuses not guaranteed.
My day typically involves client service/satisfaction, based on their tax situation. It is my responsibility to make sure they get the maximum refund/lowest tax liability. I work on a computerized system and have to be competent of 3 different applications. There are all levels of experienced professionals in my office, but as the most senior person – more... here, most of them look to me for guidance and procedures. Unfortunately there is usually a lot of staff turnover and you are never sure who you will be working with/for in the next season. The hardest part of the job is knowing your tax knowledge and having to explain to young clients that they have a balance owing to the CRA. The best part of the job is getting to meet so many different people on a daily basis and when you can find them more of a tax refund than they thought they would get. – less
