Application Details

I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Liberty Tax Service in October 2014.

Interview Details

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.

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Liberty Tax Service.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bronx, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Liberty Tax Service in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interview Process was non-existant, they just threw you into different offices wherever you were needed, didn't even really ask about experience

    Hiring was quite chaotic with them running out of positions despite hiring many more people than they obviously needed, word of advice, try to get in good with one of the managers at an office, not only will they give you more hours, you can maneuver to more pay as well

    Negotiation Details
    They wanted to pay minimum wage but I got it up to 12$

    Tax Preparer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miami, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miami, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Liberty Tax Service in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    The initial job offer listing pay was $10 + high commissions, however during interview the owner, Nelson Maldonado, said it was $8 per hour w/ 4% commissions of invoices to be paid at the end of tax season. He clearly stated I could expect $2,000 in commissions; reality was less than $200. He stated the mandatory training would be paid (it wasn't despite a signed employment agreement).

    He was thrilled over my education: Master in Taxation; he stated everyone including himself would ask me questions and to help out on their returns.

    He seemed very upbeat and stated the store was super busy, that we would all be working 40+ hours. Again, this was a lie b/c the store was dead most of the time. He claimed there would be numerous corporate clients and the possibility of accounting work after tax season, we had 3 S-corps none of which had enough transactions to warrant bookkeeper or payroll work.

    The office was filthy, but he claimed it would be clean upon opening for tax season. He claimed there would be games and food to keep customers happy and entertained while waiting, again nothing was true. The interview was very low key, but energetic.

    Interview Questions
    • He asked about my experience/my own accounting and tax clients; he implied to have them come to Liberty for tax service. I clearly stated they were my clients and I have completed their accounting and returns for numerous years, that I wouldn't be willing to refer them and then receive a percentage of the money; he understood and agreed.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation, I tried. Instead he offered the claim of $2,000 commission, which wasn't true at all. I accepted the position, based on his claims. Hindsight is 20/20 and I would never recommend anyone to work there or have their taxes completed there b/c the staff doesn't have the qualifications to complete returns properly.
