Offers great flexibility, independent work, but little room for creativity. Good for recent college graduate, excellent training program, and opportunities for advancements.

A decent place to work
The IRS is a decent place to work the pay is not great when compared to other opportunities but the job security and the healthcare help to balance that out.

Service Clerk | Kansas City, MO | Feb 11, 2020
Want a dull government job?
This a place for you if you can get by a FBI screening and your satisfied in a low income clerical position with acrimonious, old supervisors breathing down your neck. The office equipment is filled with obsolete software, riddled security software and subcontractors who overlook your productions. No dress code, so you can come to work in a ballcap, shorts, and saddles. The building is completely accommodating, including those with a handicap, although, the A/C and Heat may not be comfortable.

Government budget problems led to a long layoff in my first year. Some training never did catch up. Otherwise, expectations were clear. Lots of phone time during tax season.

Other employees and some managers
You must attend a training course for 3.5 months having items explained to you from a book and also take quizzes about what you have learned. This training includes everything you should know to be on the phones with taxpayers. I believe being on the phone with taxpayers while doing this is much more educational.
When class is complete and you are placed on the phones, you must qualify to be on the phones to keep your job. This is stressful if you don't as the IRS can let you go. There are managers who will work with you and try to support the employee if this does not happen.
Proshelping someone with their refunds, tax returns, and turning someone's day around.
