    I have been working at Jackson Hewitt part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Atmosphere that encourages constant learning. Free training and education. This job can lead to other opportunities. Great for entry level applicants

    Cons

    They will prepare returns they know are fraud and you have to if you want to stay employed. and they don't provide management with enough support for issues other than tax law.

    Advice to Management

    Have secret shoppers come get there taxes done and share experiences with owners and employees.

    Seasonal Tax Preparer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Astoria, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Jackson Hewitt (Astoria, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    The franchise owner sat down and asked me comprehensive tax questions and asked about my knowledge of taxes. He asked where I received this knowledge. The interviewer was very straightforward and didn't ask questions to trick me. Instead, he simply asked questions to gain an understanding of how much tax law I knew.
