The interview process is very easy if you are going through the class at the same time. The district manager basically sets up interviews that coincide with the office your taking your class.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at H&R Block (San Diego, CA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Friendly interview with office manager. He asked a lot of questions regarding my sales and marketing background. He was interested in how I handled customer relationships in my previous work. He was friendly and funny but asked important questions. He also shared what his expectations were of a first year tax associate. I did not expect, however, to work as many hours as I did.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at H&R Block.

    Interview

    Took the tax class for 3+ months...passed barely with 71%. The teacher who taught a class, which started out with around 15 people but ended up with around 6 people, was not an experienced teacher and not too mention her 1st year of teaching. We barely caught on to anything g but I manage to pass. Afterwards we received a certificate, then we were scheduled for anot her week of 'skills' classes. We didn't do an interview we were hired and had to fill out a bunch of paperwork online...once tax season started we went to our scheduled location of work and started practice forms on the installed program for work.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at H&R Block (Champaign, IL) in December 2014.

    Interview

    The training took about 3-4 months (August/Sept-December), and the interviews occurred around the final exam. There were two interviewers, one who appeared to just be learning the ropes, and they ask the typical questions-- think of a time when you had a difficult client, how you are a team player, strengths/weaknesses, etc.
