    Interview

    After taking and passing the tax class, it was more of a sit down because I had already met and interacted with the owner. We talked about the job and what hours I wanted to work and which location. She told me the hourly rate for first years.

    The hiring process took about 3 weeks and the interview was held at their regional office with one of their senior managers.

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at H&R Block (Columbia, SC) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Took the class and passed the test. We set up interviews before we even knew if we passed the test. (You have to pass the test before you can get hired though.) Interview was a breeze, he tried to get me my ptin number before I even left the interview. One thing that made me frustrated was that I didn't know when the training was going to start, and I wouldn't have even known that I was for sure hired because nobody called or emailed me to let me know. I had to call and they told me that classes start the very next day. Didn't seem to care that I almost wasn't hired because of their mistake.

    Interview

    I took the tax prep class and was told to complete the application asap to let them know who was interested in working. I never heard from anyone until the 2nd to last week of class and I had an interview in the office with a branch manager. The branch manager had a piece of paper and it appeared she asked me questions off of the list.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at H&R Block in November 2014.

    Interview

    I didn't go their class and passed the Tax Knowledge Assessment on the website and then applied online. I got a call on the next day to set up an on-site interview in the following Monday. After the interview, I got the offer when I walked out of the office. It was so efficient and I really appreciate it! I was relaxed in the whole interview and before that, I really feared about the interview because English is not my mother language. There is just one simple question "tell me about yourself", I answered a lot, maybe the interviewer figured out that all the things he wanted to know were in my introduction already, so no more formal questions. And still I remember someone said in his review that the interview in this company was really easy, especially in the DC offices. Yeah, I bet he is right.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I didn't negociate the price, I got the price when I saw the offer letter and it is not a real beginning price. Actually, they gave me the title II, although I applied the first year tax professional and don't have much real hands-on experience.

    Application

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

    Interview

    One of the easiest, most relaxed interviews I have ever participated in. Passed test online and submitted resume with cover letter. Was called about 3 weeks later and invited to interview. I sat with the interviewer about 30 minutes, reviewing their payment policies, discussing the location options, and was asked if I thought I would be a good fit. I had to ask if they were hiring me, as it seemed as though I was already hired! I don't know if my relaxed attitude or my resume impressed them, or if help is hard to get at the salary with the conditions, but it almost seemed as though I was hired before I even got there.

    Negotiation

    I did negotiate a slightly higher starting hourly wage, however most of their package is not negotiable.
