Flexible with hours, good place for gaining office experience
Tax Professional (Employé actuel) – Brandon, MB – 27 avril 2018
You bring a client into your office ask some questions, give some advice, and enter their information in the tax software that you would learn about in the course they run and you have to take before you can be hired as a Tax Pro.
Other tax pros can usually answer questions you may have both for tax concerns or concerns with the software. Management is against overtime for the most part and will respect your availability and desired hours of work each week(so long as its 40 or under).
There are bonuses based on how many returns you do, how much revenue those returns brought H&R Block, the extra services you get client to buy, and how many years you've been with them. This does little to improve the lackluster pay for the first year but gets much better for the next two.
Advancement(at least to higher level of tax pro) is as easy as taking further courses through H&R Block but only one can be taken before each tax season and an 80% mark is needed to pass. Training on office procedures is lacking compared to the training on the software and tax knowledge.
Best part of the job is giving clients good news with the worst being giving them bad news or when software problems bring the office to a halt (happened a few times in my time there).
Almost exclusively seasonal with only a few part time positions for the off season. Overall a great place to gain some office experience.
