    Tax Professional Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Jackson Hewitt.

    Interview Details

    Applied online about 6 months then got a chance to interview in person.
    Training took about 3-4 months but it depends on your educational background, the more you know about tax system, the more likely you will get a better position.
    Payment is average but you will get a great deal of experience esp your management.

    Vice President, FP&A Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Jackson Hewitt.

    Interview Details

    Typical for this level however it was slightly drawn out. This organization is not the caliber I am looking for, everyone I spoke to had a different vision of the company's strategy, ton of turnover, no information on benefits and the offer was not in writing. Not top tier.

    Tax Preparer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Jackson Hewitt in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    My interviewer did not even show up for my interview. I was interviewed (if you can call it that) by the front desk receptionist. I still have never met my manager. I suppose it was an easy interview, but had I known then what I know now, I would have recognized the haphazard interview as a red flag for how frustrating the rest of my brief employment here would be.

    Interview Questions
    • "Well, I don't really know anything about taxes; I just do the front desk. So I don't really know what to ask you. Is there anything you want to tell me?"   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    It was non-existent. I was sent an onboarding packet via email. That was it.

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Jackson Hewitt.

    Interview Details

    The process was easy. I had to fill out a paper application, then took the tax class and passed the required course and the IRS required testing. I received useful help with any questions that I had during the classes and the office was open for me to be able to use the internet.

    There was none.

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Jackson Hewitt.

    Interview Details

    Spoke to the owner in person, he gave me the job right away. I was full time. Now the new GM will require you to take classes before employment. I am not sure if you have to pay for it or not.

    Interview Questions
    • What do you think of the new guy? The owner asked me this and I could not reply honestly.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    He won't negotiate. The owner and old GM were fair and pleasant to work with. I am not sure if I will come back next year unless management changes. I thought my work contributed to the long term of the company, not anymore.
