    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Kindercare (San Jose, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    It was a job fair but it doesn't look like a real job fair. Not many people came also. I was there on time but they didn't set up yet. The interview was brief. However , it is better prepare it. The director was very nice. She said I will get contact within a week. It is 4 days now. Finger crossing.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Kindercare (Renton, WA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I set an appointment up on the recruiter's calendar, she cancelled it because of something that came up and apologized. I reset the appointment for a new date on her calendar. I had to move my appointment, because the KU company changed my work hours for that week and then I apologized for the inconvenience. She was very cordial and understanding and let me set another appointment that would work for my new work schedule. We finally connected, had a very short conversation. The position I was applying for had been filled.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Kindercare.

    Interview

    The phone interview was very comprehensive and informative. I was allowed more than sufficient opportunity to ask questions regarding the position. The recruiter was more knowledgeable about the position and organization than I expected including growth strategies and market potentials.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Kindercare.

    Interview

    Applied several times with Kindercare. I had maybe a few interviews. I would see a position apply and hear nothing. Week/month latter see a similar job posted. Why don’t they just hire me? I have the education and experience for the positions I am applying for. Finally one day I got a response in a form of a letter from there attorneys saying I apply to much, they are not going to hire me and stop applying. Is this legal? Isn’t that discrimination? I would not recommend them.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Kindercare.

    Interview

    I applied online for a number of different Director positions and received an email for each. The emails were vague and didn't tell me which site the interviews were for (I wanted to know because some of the cities were more desirable than others). I asked the person I was in contact with and he refused to tell me. Even so, I set up a phone interview for one of the positions the following day. I prepared all night and woke up very early the next day for final preparations. The scheduled time came...and passed. I waited two hours and the interviewer never called. Haven't heard a think since. I haven't heard from them at all.
