    Working for Jackson Hewitt is one of the most satisfying, educational experiences in my career.

    Office Manager (Current Employee) Kannapolis, NC

    ProsThe best reasons to work here are the people who come in the door. Each person is unique and every situation different. The pay is decent and the bonuses at the end of the seasons are well worth it. The education credits are free and the company keeps us up to date on all the current tax laws and changes.

    ConsFor some of the same reasons, working here is challenging. No one likes to pay taxes and when you get to the "bottom line" most people think they should receive larger refunds, and should pay less tax.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWe really need to make ourselves more "visible" in the community. Off-season ads and billboards or sponsorships will help us to do this.
