    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at H&R Block in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was contacted about a month after applying. The interview was fairly easy and laid back. The questions are pretty standard: about working in stressful situations and role playing. After the interview, I was told I might be hard depending on passing the class, which I wasn't signed up for.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I completed the online tax knowledge evaluation rather than taking the H&R Block tax course that is offered. A week later I received a call asking me to come in for an interview. The interview was short, sweet, and to the point, and a few days later I was called and offered the job.

    Interview Questions
    • I was surprised at how many questions were asked about clerical work. Turns out the interviewer thought I was there for an admin position, so my advice is to verify that when you arrive.   Answer Question

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at H&R Block.

    Interview Details

    I applied online. I got a call about a month later to interview. Most interview questions involved things like "Tell me about yourself," "What made you apply for this position," What experiences have you had that would benefit in this job?" The interview process was relatively short and easy. I ended up getting an offer of a "scholarship" for their tax course to become a Tax Pro which they claimed normally costs $199. (But not completely free as I would have to buy my books for $200). They weren't clear about the odds of getting a job with them or any guarantee of it. I'm still trying to figure out if this is something that would be worth taking or if it is simply a way for H&R Block to make easy money off of people like me. Overall though the two people I spoke with were very nice and I felt good about the interview other than the vague description of Classes that would be "free", oh except $200 for books. That's not really free is it.

    District Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate 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
