>>>>>>>I was thinking about working for H&R this year but does anyone have anything positive to say about them?<<<<<<<

I do. I did taxes for themlast year, but won't this year. I couldn't fit the 24 hours of continuing ed into my schedule, but I can see myself doing it next year.

At least in my office I enjoyed all of my co-workers and the office manager was very willing to work around my school schedule and single parenting. I enjoyed the interaction with the customers, except the when the EIC, free money crowd would get all excited about me not "giving them" the size refund/subsidy they felt that they deserved.

All jobs have their drawbacks, this one included, but if you hang in there and build up a clientele that comes to you year after year, you can earn a nice amount of money in a short amount of time.

One woman in my office dealt strictly with her schedule. She took nothing out of the "pool." She didn't have to. She was always busy. She figured that she made $20/hr on a slow day and easily over $30/hr during "peak." Try finding THAT from a part-time job.

Of course, she's been doing it for 20 years too, so that helps, but the opportunity is there for a longer term pay off, just don't expect miracles immediately.
