    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed 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.

    Interview Questions

    • most awkward question was that she wanted an answer there and now for the tax preparer position.   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed 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.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Liberty Tax Service (Ashland, KY) in December 2013.

    Interview

    There is really not much to the interview. What we consider interviews is our basic tax school which serves as a sort of vetting tool for Manager's and franchise owners to gauge who can work with us. And then Formally interview them at the end of the course. In Most cases they are hired

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Liberty Tax Service (Bronx, NY) in January 2013.

    Interview

    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

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