    Lead Pre K Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Bright Horizons Family Solutions (Atlanta, GA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    It was a great experience from meeting and interviewing with the director and assistant director all the way to the teacher who works in the class!!! I was impressed with the compassion they have for even potential employees. It was a very open and warm atmosphere. They take the time to try to be sure they hire the right person for the position they need to feel and this is extremely important for the families and children as well as coworkers.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Bright Horizons Family Solutions (Elmont, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    First I was called by the director, then I came in and interacted with a few of the playrooms (an hour- hour and a half). Then I sat down with director and her assistant. I was able to meet the other teachers and observe as well and interact a little bit with the kids. This was very enjoyable and a good way to see the program first hand for me; it also was a good way for teachers and director and assistant director see me interact in this educational environment.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Bright Horizons Family Solutions (Deerfield Beach, FL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process was very smooth. The director actually seemed to care about the school, and the recruiter went above and beyond her job title. I had to go through a few channels to be granted an interview, but that was fine. Showed the company cares. The hiring process was simple. They do request you complete a drug test, two different background screens, etc before beginning, but that's typical. I do wish they had given me the opportunity to have copies of drug tests and background screenings as I did pay for them.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. I requested a certain pay, and was granted a number much lower. I feel like it was not based fairly on experience and education.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Bright Horizons Family Solutions (Seattle, WA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Two person interview, followed by an hour in the classroom to be observed working with the children. They also toured the facility to me and introduced me to most of the staff. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. I was asked to come back and do a 3 hour working interview because they weren't sure about me. I still was not offered the position that I applied for, but was still hired with the company. I'm happy that they really try to choose the best person for the job, and still gave me a chance overall.
