Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Kindercare (Renton, WA) in April 2015.

Interview

I set an appointment up on the recruiter's calendar, she cancelled it because of something that came up and apologized. I reset the appointment for a new date on her calendar. I had to move my appointment, because the KU company changed my work hours for that week and then I apologized for the inconvenience. She was very cordial and understanding and let me set another appointment that would work for my new work schedule. We finally connected, had a very short conversation. The position I was applying for had been filled.

Interview Questions

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Kindercare (Stafford, VA).

    Interview

    I originally found the job posting on Craigslist and it led me to their website to begin the application process. A few days later, I received an email requesting a phone interview. A week later, I had an in-person interview with the Director of that location. The Director wore sweat pants. Despite our contrasting wardrobe choices, the interview went very well and I progressed onto the final stage: an interview with the regional director. (This time the Director wore slacks.) The third interview went wonderfully. They even made comments like "Can you start tomorrow?" and "You are exactly what we've been looking for!" They said they would let me know the following week.

    One week later, I sent a follow-up email to the Corporate Representative. No response.
    4 days after the 1st email, I sent an email to the Director. No response.
    4 days after the 2nd email, I sent an email to the Corporate Representative that gave me the initial phone interview. No response.

    20 days after my 3rd interview, I received a phone call from the Corporate Representative telling me that they chose another candidate.
