    Application Details

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

    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.

    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.

    Seasonal Tax Preparer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied in-person - interviewed at Jackson Hewitt.

    Interview Details

    It lasted literally 5 minutes, if that. All I was asked is why I wanted the job and what previous work experience I had. Then she reviewed my grades from the tax class I was taking and said she would be e-mailing me the new hire packet. It didn't really seem like an interview at all. I felt like she was just trying to make sure I wasn't completely stupid before extending the offer.

    Interview Questions
    • None, the only questions asked were why I wanted the job and to describe my previous work experience.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. She told me what the base pay for a first time preparer was and then showed the commission table to me for about 30 seconds.
