    Easy Interview

    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.

    Application

    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.

    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.
