    I worked at Liberty Tax Service full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Easy going work environment and taxes are something everyone should know.

    Cons

    Can be high pressure at moments, a lot of knowledge is required for a job that’s barely paying over minimum wage.

    Advice to Management

    Repay students for their books if they stay and work with the company for the whole season.

    I worked at Liberty Tax Service part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    • Good hours during the tax season. • Great work environment. • A lot of sitting down and communicating. • Getting to meet some great new people and seeing them again next year or throughout the tax season if they own a business or have issues. • Learning about the new tax regulations for the tax year set by the IRS. • Everything is pretty much OTJ training.

    Cons

    •Some people aren't the most pleasant, but you have to deal with it and with a smile on your face. • Staring at a computer screen all day can take it's toll eventually. • If you had issues with some people, you WILL see them again.

    I worked at Liberty Tax Service part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Working with the community. Great co-workers.

    Cons

    Hours promised were not given. As a preparer you were required to do marketing by going to businesses and homes in the area to hand out fliers. Pay was minimal and bonus was not as explained during training.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest that employee's that are new will not be working 40 hours a week and that the pay will be minimum wage. Do not require employees to do cleaning, marketing and other things they were not hired to do.
