Negotiation Details – Initially, after I applied online, they sent an email back saying that I had to go to a site to set up my own interview. it was a pain because there was never any interviews available at the office that I apllied for. I had to send Human Resources multiple emails asking how to get an interview set up. After a 2 months of checking the site they told me to go to to set up the interview, they sent me an email back saying that all the positions had been filled. This wasn't true because within 2 weeks after that, I received a phone call from the local office to schedule the interview. Keep after them to get an interview. Also, they were interviewing a lot of us at the same time, so you had to wait to be called.
Very Easy Interview
I applied online - interviewed at H&R Block in January 2013.
Interview Details – I was one of the lucky ones. I guess they needed a Spanish speaker right away since the office was located in predominantly Latino community. I applied online and received an email from a district manager to see if I was interested in a job so we could set up an interview. I said yes but no interview actually happened. Either they were desperate or my resume was pretty decent that they trusted my abilities. She pushed my application forward and went through the application process which was all done online and through the phone. Then I received a call from the office manager and she told me when to show up for my first day and that was it. I think there is a formal training we have to go through but I was informally trained on the spot on my first day. It is a pretty easy job so I don't think it's necessary.
