I've worked for H&R Block for 13 years, I was recruited through AARP's senior program. I loved it and never felt any age discrimination. As a matter of fact, because of my KPMG background, i was looked at aa very experienced asset to the company.

I have my CPA which was a plus for HR Block. After working for two years at HR Block and bringing clients to HR Block, they want to reduce my hourly rate. In addition, the local HR Block office created a hostile work environment. If I had wanted to pursue legal action, it was likely that I could have won. I believe that I was punished by HR Block for sending an email to my district supervisor about the hostile work environment and they did nothing about the situation. For the tax knowledge that HR Block expects, they pay peanuts.

I completed nine tax seasons as a Tax Professional with H&R Block. Tax Season 2018 will be number ten. It is a very good place to work for a semi-retired person who likes working with clients and who is detailed orientated. Compensation is based on one's level of experience, certification, and production. I am 73 years old and an IRS Enrolled Agent. H&R Block allows a tax professional to work as little or as much as one desires during tax season.

H&R Block's workplace environment and company values is outstanding when it comes to family values, and welcoming and supporting workers age 50+ and older.

The Manager I had liked me. However, her talk was so unprofessional for a business office! There was complaint(s) made about her to upper level management, nothing done about it. Work hours here terrible. Manager put too many people on for this job I was doing. And therefore cut my hours to near nothing. Crazy hours too! Way too many classes to take for a person not doing taxes.

Denotes a Certified Age Friendly Employer

After reading the comments by those who express their perspective of age related discriminating practices by more than a few employers, I felt very concerned for older workers that need/desire employment. I wonder if these employers understand that it is not just the revenue from young adults that keep them in business. I wonder how they would survive if the older generation would stop supporting their businesses. I also wonder if these employers understand the principle of sowing and reaping? I am grateful to your agency for providing the results of your survey and your commitment to provide older workers with reliable job leads.
