Tax Preparer Interview

Tax Preparer
Fredericksburg, VA

I applied in-person and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at H&R Block in November 2010.

Interview Details – My hiring process started before I knew I wanted to work for H R Block. It started while taking a class about taxes. After passing the class, I was asked by the instructor to interview. After that, all correspondence was done online. Process can be frustrating. But you are able to get help at H R Block office.

Interview Question – When you are asked if you like taxes, give an honest answer.   Answer Question

Tax Preparer Interview

I applied online and the process took 6 months - interviewed at H&R Block.

Interview Details – The interview process was sketchy, at best. She had a set list of questions and didn't even look me in the eye during the interview. Once I got an offer, the website was so glitchy that I spent almost a month wasting my time communicating with different offices, and over an hour on the phone with Kansas City to have my offer letter emailed to me as an attachment. I responded to the email, but it was not processed in the system for over a week, so I received countless nagging calls and emails to do something I had already done. I never received the rest of my new-hire paperwork.

Interview Question – "You will not have the option to work for commission--is that ok?" Even though I was a returning tax preparer with good numbers. The offer letter contradicted this remark.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I accepted by email, because the hiring website was not working properly. When I spent the next week pursuing the proper paperwork, I decided it was not worth it to work for the company, and I withdrew my acceptance.
