    Lead Teacher Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Kiddie Academy.

    Interview Details

    I applied to a brand new facility not yet opened, so I had to go to another location to interview.
    I drove 40 minutes to get there, arrived 10 minutes early, waited for 25 minutes, only to have the interview last 5 minutes!!
    They didn't ask me anything about myself as a teacher. She asked why I left my last job, what I'm looking for in my search, and how much I wanted to get paid. That's IT.
    I left the interview knowing I could never work there. I'd say this is a step below KinderCare.

    Interview Questions
    • NONE. She asked me ZERO questions about my teaching techniques or personality or anything about me.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Kiddie Academy in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Filled out an application online from the center's website. Didn't hear anything from them until over a month later (center wasn't even open yet, though). Had interview within a week. Was pretty normal interview; asked about experience, how I deal with children misbehaving, what makes for a positive classroom atmosphere, etc. Got a call with job offer within a week and a half after the interview. Delays in construction and DCFS requirements caused the job to start two months later.

    Interview Questions
    • Can't remember there being any difficult or unexpected questions...it was a pretty standard interview that went well.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Hourly pay was non-negotiable. It was "take it or leave it".
