District Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in Orlando, FL
Anonymous Employee in Orlando, FL
Application Details

I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at H&R Block in September 2014.

Interview Details

The interview process took place over a video feed with the Regional Manager and someone from HR who was only connected via phone (sort of a conference call) The interview process took exactly about 1 hour in time using the STAR format looking for "specific" responses in order to gage one's skills and experience dealing with such situation. The person doing most of the questions was the HR rep only bouncing on the Regional every now and then for follow up questions or comments.
All in all the entire interview process was as you would expect for someone interviewing for this position.

Interview Questions
  • There were no difficult or unexpected questions, however, a word of advise for those interviewing, do your homework and do your research in order to help you with the typical "Tell us about yourself" we often take this question for granted.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at H&R Block in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    You must complete an online application. I got an e-mail asking for my resume and what time to interview. The interview was 45 minutes with two current District Managers. The questions were scripted and fairly easy to anticipate. Such as: Give an example when you were able to increase revenue. What did you do? What do you dislike about your current job? How do you hold your staff accountable? How would you handle an upset customer? What would you do if an employee was not meeting expectations?

    Interview Questions
    • The question about what do I not like about my current job was tough. I was afraid I might say the wrong thing.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at H&R Block in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was quite lengthy. I first was contacted and interviewed by the Recruiter, then a panel interview of four people. Two DM's, and 2 Regional Directors. After making past that round you are called by the Market Vice President, and finally a final phone call with the Regional HR Director. After that it took an additional week or two to begin the actual hiring process. Overall it wasn't bad.....but it did take a long time. Once they job offered me I had to go through a background check prior to starting. They also hire a third party company to validate your references and employment verification. I believe they also ran a credit check.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no questions that were out of the ordinary. They were mostly behavioral based questions...."tell me about a time when" ETC   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at H&R Block in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    An HR recruiter will review your application and resume and then conduct a phone screen. Should you pass the phone screen, you are invited to an in-person panel interview, typically with the Regional Director and other managers (DMs or HR Managers). Be prepared for "behavioral interviewing" - the interview questions focus on specific leadership qualities and ask you to provide a specific example of a time when you demonstrated the qualification in your experience.
