Customer service (Former Employee) –  Belleville, ON8 September 2017
Doing taxes can be very stressful for most people including myself.
I learned a lot about taxes and rules the government has in place.
The hardest part of the job is dealing with upset clients. But the best part is meeting new people and being able to help them understand certain things about doing taxes.

I learned a bit about bookkeeping and accounting. They are long days and short days but you get through it when you get the motivation from co-workers.

Computer Crew (Former Employee) –  Oshawa, ON11 August 2017
The staff around are incredible, if you can find one person to get along with, you will have the time of your life. If not well lets just say the stress and anxiety will probably get to you by the end of the year.
Pros
Fantastic co-workers

Too many problems for the amount of staff on hand.

Unorganized, too many bosses that did things differently
Tax Preparer (Former Employee) –  Fort St. John, BC5 August 2017
Training is not adequate, clients had to wait in my office while I did the tax return and it got approved for sending to CRA. They should have been able to drop off the information, and come back & pick it up when it was done.
Cons
Long hours, Clients in your office while returns were being prepared

ok for some extra money
RECEPTIONIST/TAX PROFESSIONAL/MANAGER (Former Employee) –  London, ON3 August 2017
ok for some extra money, good after the Christmas holidays. Not a career that's for sure. Most of the people are ok though. If you want to learn how to do your own tax they offer good courses.
