    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Liberty Tax Service (Phoenix, AZ) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Liberty Tax basically will hire anyone that passes their exams. They will train you and prepare you for the test, and if you fail you get the chance to try again. They really ensure that you succeed, but only if you are putting forth the effort. The con is that you will spend many hours/days studying and practicing tax law without compensation.

    Interview Questions

    • The formal interview had generic questions like, "how would your friends describe you?"   Answer Question

    Your show up basically for a sales pitch for various jobs and then they schedule you for classes. The classes are not hard at all pretty simple, to this day I find it amazing that people actually pay to have this service done instead of doing it for themselves. If they like you they bring you on,
