Jackson Hewitt Tax Service looking to add jobs to payroll


As a number of employers have been forced to cut jobs, Jackson Hewitt Tax Service is adding jobs to the payroll at its locations in South Mississippi.

Victoria Fraiser was born and raised in South Mississippi. Fifteen years ago, she began working for Jackson Hewitt Tax Service, a good move she says that’s turned out to be a productive long-term investment on several fronts. “We have great training, not only when you first begin but ongoing throughout the years to make sure that you are very knowledgeable about what we’re trying to do for the clients.”

South Mississippi is home to the largest Jackson Hewitt Tax Service franchise in the entire United States and they’re looking to add at least 25 new people to their payroll. You can attend a Tuesday job fair to apply. “It is a wonderful opportunity for people to last for years. We are COVID compliant so we are having a drive through job fair at the WIN Job Center in Gulfport.”

The drive through job fair will run Tuesday, August 25th from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m. on Tuesday at the Win Job Center on South Park Drive in Gulfport. They’ll be looking to hire customer service associates and tax preparers who will receive training through the company’s tax school to get a license. “We have a tax school coming up. We have day and evening classes. The evening classes start August 31st from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays. The day classes start Tuesday, September 1st and they go Tuesdays to Thursdays 9 a.m. to noon.”

If you can’t make it to Tuesday’s job fair you can call one of the Jackson Hewitt Tax Service’s 13 locations in South Mississippi.

You can also call 833-4MYTAXES or 833-469-8293 if you can’t make Tuesday’s drive through job fair, but would still like to apply for a job.
