Interviewed at H&R Block

Interview Details – An interview for tax professional position should be fairly simple and easy since there is a few month tax prep training beforehand. The interviewers I had began with a casual conversation, and after few questions regarding office location and schedule, they asked general tax questions such as filing status, deduction, and credits.

Interview Question – The interviewers chose tricky questions related to QC, QR, HH, and EIC, which are widly covered in the tax prep training and are frequently encountered in actual tax prep with clients.   Answer Question
