FIRST YEAR TAX PROFESSIONAL Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lakewood, CA
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at H&R Block (Lakewood, CA) in November 2017.

Interview

Someone called me for an interview. When I got to office where the interview was to be held, one female office person wearing jeans came to me and asked me what I needed. I told her I was there for an interview. She had me fill out paperwork and asked me for my ID's. I asked her why she needed them. She said in the Long Beach District they request the ID's to do the I-9 ahead of time. I thought this was weird but I cooperated. I think this is against the law but I'm not sure. I always thought one had to be hired first before being asked for IDs to do an I-9.

As for the actual interview, a female worker called me to meet with her. She asked if I had applied. She appeared to be rude and unprofessional as she was asking me. She didn't ask me any questions about my abilities, experience or just simple interview questions. She just wanted to know what hours I could work and nothing else. Our meeting took less than 10 minutes. Very unprofessional. From the first person I spoke to in the beginning to the person who screen me at the end - very unprofessional.

    The manager was very informative and through. The interview ended quicker than expected. The manager was very genuine and you can tell he is a good manager because at the end he asked if there was anything I thought would make the interview process better. He went through potential career development and growth which is always nice to see in a company.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at H&R Block (Cleveland, OH) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for this position while still attending the Income Tax Course. This may have helped to speed things up a bit. I applied about 10 days ago, got an email inviting me for interview and I could choose location and time. In the first part of interview the hiring managers told us a lot about the company (I was there with 4 other applicants) and in their own words to put us at ease. The second part was one-on-one interview.
