    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Kindercare (Mundelein, IL) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was short and sweet. Basic procedure questions and tour of facility. The Head Coordinator was very nice and knew she wanted to hire me within minutes.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Kindercare (Memphis, TN) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty quick. I applied online in mid-June and had my first interview a week later. The director asked me a few questions for about 10 minutes, then one of the teachers gave me a tour of the facility while looking over my resume. Then she and the director asked me questions about my background. From there I was put in 2 different classroom settings so they could observe me with the children. Overall, I spent a little over 2.5 hours there for the 1st interview. A week later (this week), I received an invitation for a second interview with corporate. I'm hoping this means that I got the job!
