"Do not work for this company. You will be expected to work many hours during tax season and for minimum wage. They will dangle a bonus in front of you, which you possibly will earn if you can meet the impossibly inhumane tasks assigned to you. I worked here for several years and every year I'd just meet my expectations only to return the next tax season to find them increased dramatically. To make matters even worse, my office manager was stealing my established clients, a fact I was not even aware of until late in the tax season. Needless to say, I was completely heartbroken by my treatment and the supposed camaraderie of the company."
