    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Kindercare.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no unexpected or overly difficult questions, however, this was an initial phone screen.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Kindercare.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Center Director Interview

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    Assistant Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stafford, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stafford, VA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Kindercare.

    Interview Details

    I originally found the job posting on Craigslist and it led me to their website to begin the application process. A few days later, I received an email requesting a phone interview. A week later, I had an in-person interview with the Director of that location. The Director wore sweat pants. Despite our contrasting wardrobe choices, the interview went very well and I progressed onto the final stage: an interview with the regional director. (This time the Director wore slacks.) The third interview went wonderfully. They even made comments like "Can you start tomorrow?" and "You are exactly what we've been looking for!" They said they would let me know the following week.

    One week later, I sent a follow-up email to the Corporate Representative. No response.
    4 days after the 1st email, I sent an email to the Director. No response.
    4 days after the 2nd email, I sent an email to the Corporate Representative that gave me the initial phone interview. No response.

    20 days after my 3rd interview, I received a phone call from the Corporate Representative telling me that they chose another candidate.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Kindercare in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    It felt like the most difficult interview i had ever been in because i was interviewed by the director and district manager at the same time.

    Interview Questions
    • Almost all of the questions were difficult coming from the district manager because kindercare not only goes by state minimum standards, they also have accreditation so they expect more from their staff. I got nervous at some point.   Answer Question
