    Current Intern - Tax Consultant in Tuscaloosa, AL
    Current Intern - Tax Consultant in Tuscaloosa, AL

    I have been working at Jackson Hewitt as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule, real world tax experience, internship while still full time student, training and testing applicable to tax on a larger scale, opportunity to look at hundreds of tax returns per week, always learning new tax policies

    Cons

    Work is the same every day, difficult to stay focus at times, takes awhile to become adept at reviewing and preparing tax returns

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is meant to be a semester internship during tax seasons and the opportunity for growth is limited by a low-income targeted market for taxes. However, if the internship was a little more exciting and gave the opportunity for full-time opportunities with corporate locations, interns may be more likely to be enthusiast about the position and consider contributing long term.
