    Former Employee - Lead Tax Preparer in Mesa, AZ

    I worked at Jackson Hewitt part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great management support and reference materials to ensure that Lead Tax Preparers exceed customer's expectations.

    Cons

    Internet quality suffers, especially inside Walmart kiosks. A faster ISP would be most helpful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please improve ISP and Walmart ISP connectivity service interuptions. This negatively affects the customer satisfaction experience.

    Former Employee - Tax Preparer in Salt Lake City, UT

    I worked at Jackson Hewitt part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The franchise I worked for had a pretty generous bonus system
    Good support from management in the franchise I worked for
    Good way to get a little extra cash and/or some tax prep experience

    Cons

    It is on a walk-in basis (my location was in a Wal-Mart) and sometimes customers where not coming in. This made it boring sometimes.
    Not the best software that you had to use to prepare returns
    Some coworkers who worked at a different time than me but in the same location frankly didn't always seem to know what they were doing. This sometimes caused customers to become irate at me for a mistake that was not my own.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If an employee does not have accounting and/or tax prep back ground please make sure they receive proper training.
    Please increase training on customer service skills.
