    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Liberty Tax Service (Jacksonville, NC) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Your show up basically for a sales pitch for various jobs and then they schedule you for classes. The classes are not hard at all pretty simple, to this day I find it amazing that people actually pay to have this service done instead of doing it for themselves. If they like you they bring you on,

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Liberty Tax Service (Anaheim, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    they weren't as professional as I thought they were, the person that interview me didn't even asked me about myself, she just wanted to get to the point and tell me how her hiring process worked. $250 dollars for a week of classes. lady I'm there cause I need money not to give money . plus after the peak months it becomes seasonal. all in all waste of time.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Liberty Tax Service (Orlando, FL).

    Interview

    There wasn't really an interview process. I just took a rapid tax course (3 days) and after those 3 days the store manager made an offer to the individuals she thought would be an asset to her store. I wish I would have taken the 6 or 8 week course.
