    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Brightside Academy.

    Interview

    I went to an open house job fair kind of thing. I was interviewed by two program directors. Got a call back two weeks later. Hiring process was time consuming, had to get in a lot of paper work done and certifications online (which are free), had to pay $127 to get fingerprinted, fee was not waived. Hiring manager seemed under a lot of stress and forgot some manners and interpersonal skills, should have been a warning sign to not work there.

    Interview Questions

    • Many questions were about classroom situations, what would you do if... Must know something about curriculums for ECE or have that experience with kids for them to even hire you.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was none, they called me told me I made 10.75 and they could not pay more.
