    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at H&R Block (Virginia Beach, VA).

    Interview

    Very easy, relaxed. I applied online and took an online assessment. I met with the District Manager one-on-one. It was very straight forward and I was offered a position that day. Unfortunately, the location I applied for was full. However, I was offered 2 other locations. Usually they require people take there basic prep class. But, since I passed their online assessment (before my interview), and had a MBA, I was not required to take the class.
