Big thank you to the more than 10,000 associates who participated in a fundraising effort called Jeans for Jude, benefiting St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.

To help assist the city of New Orleans with the cleanup of Mardi Gras celebrations, we have opened our doors for anyone wanting to recycle the famous Mardi Gras beads. Over the years, beads have become the most coveted item during this holiday.
Now through the end of today, visit us in New Orleans as we host a drive to help collect and recycle these beads. In the past, New Orleans has struggled to keep the excess beads out of storm drains, which has caused flooding problems.
In 1955, two brothers set out to provide the public with the highest quality tax services. Today, we continue to serve our clients, our community, and our brand with the same passion our founders held.
The H&R Block mission is simple. We look at your life through tax, and we find ways to help. We’ve been true to that mission since the beginning when brothers Henry and Richard Bloch founded the company.
The brand synonymous with taxes for decades continues to lead the industry with innovative thinking and advanced technology. Millions of clients also use our digital solutions to prepare their tax returns. And now every H&R Block Tax Professional has the added power of data to help get clients their maximum refund. By combining the knowledge of our highly trained professionals with cognitive computing technology, we’re offering clients our most personalized tax experience ever. This is the future H&R Block is building. It’s one our founders would be proud of – and one that is true to our mission of looking at life through taxes, and finding ways to help.

Advice to Management
Work closely with your teams to make sure you receive actionable feedback and make changes to process as needed.
I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at H&R Block (San Diego, CA) in December 2018.
Applied online and got a callback from the recruiter the same day. We did a preliminary phone interview, and then another callback the same day to schedule an in-person interview. A few days later I did the in-person interview, where two senior team leads conducted it. They described the position clearly, were upfront about the work and pay, and asked questions about experiences I had working with others and tech in general.
