QA Business Analyst

"I worked as a QA/Business Analyst in a 1 year contract to hire with H&R Block. I was able to successfully perform and get through my 1 year contract and had discussions with my managers/Director of IT in transitioning to full time. Towards the end of my tenure, I was one of the millions of Americans who was affected by the pandemic. I would still love an opportunity to work again with my team at H&R Block. However, I understand that I now need to begin looking elsewhere for new employment opportunities. So here I am now, speaking to you all!"

Senior Software Developer

"I've worked for TekSystems at H&R Block for 7 months on a contract basis. The company is great. They are very flexible with work location and hours. Management is also very great about commuication. H&R Block is in the process of rewriting their core software and I have been taking part in that. Working bugs and doing code reviews as needed. Working mostly with their UI and custom applications that generate tax calculations."

"I've been the company for a few years. the bonuses have been decent, though in prior years bonuses were non-existent. The ability to move up depends on both the department you work in, and willingness to look for positions in other departments of yours had little potential. The CFO has taking strides to reduce expenses significantly over the past few years, sometimes at the reduction of employee benefits."

Tax Professional

"Don't have much data handy, but a great company with a customer oriented model. One of the largest seasonal part time employers in the country. An established name in tax preparation for people of any area of operation, business or else. Have a great training system so that even with no background you become tax preparer. Thus a grand business model."

"H&R Block is an enigma. There is so much potential yet the company cannot innovate to save its life. It is full of professionals who only desire to keep their jobs and never achieve greatness. Like a government office, people do the minimum to get by and never risk being noticed by being bold. The leadership has an ivory tower approach and their locked-down, security laden top floor proves this. The company is only focused on shareholder value while clients and employees suffer."
