    Lead Teacher Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Declined Offer

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kiddie Academy.

    Interview

    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

    Reasons for Declining

    Didn't get what I wanted

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Kiddie Academy.

    Interview

    - Applied at brand new facility, not opened yet - Sent my application information through their online form - Received call to set up face-to-face interview over a month later - Went to interview (was asked standard interview questions, lots of open-ended, plenty of chances to sell myself with lots of preparation before interview) - Received call with job offer three weeks later (they are not on a strict timeline since they are not opened yet)

    Interview Questions

    • What kinds of activities would you plan for a two month old?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    - Was offered a "per-hour" salary - No negotiation was desired on my part, but I don't think there would have been a lot of wiggle room

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Kiddie Academy (Crystal Lake, IL) in February 2013.

    Interview

    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

    Hourly pay was non-negotiable. It was "take it or leave it".
