Your Purpose:

At Jackson Hewitt, we provide an invaluable service in guiding our clients through the tax codes, rules, and processes. We do this with integrity, quality, and consistency.

The role you play is critical to our success and together we are "Working Hard for the Hardest Working Americans". This is our mission and it's a large part of why we work here. Together we are highly passionate about what we do, and how we can help our clients.

    • Collection and processing of clients' payments while ensuring timely deposits.
    • Marketing and business generation efforts.
    • Support office priorities through teamwork and collaboration.
    • Mentor and support teammates, providing guidance and in some cases acting as a lead.
    • This position has access to and regularly works with information of a sensitive, highly confidential nature which requires a working knowledge of the business.

      • Passion for providing extraordinary customer service
