Income Tax Preparer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied in-person and the process took 3 days - interviewed at H&R Block in November 2010.

Interview Details – Upon completion of H & R Block Income Tax Course, the candidates were asked to apply for Seasonal Tax Preparers job. This would enable them to train the candidates further in handling prospective clients. So the basic requirement is that, you pay upfront to attend their course which may/may not lead to employment.

Interview Question – I was totally taken aback when the interviewer commented on my ethnical background and wondered if my husband would be comfortable with my evening work hours. At the same time she complimented on my high scores and personality!   Answer Question

District Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Whittier, CA

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 Question – 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
