    Several Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Kindercare.

    Interview Details

    Applied several times with Kindercare. I had maybe a few interviews. I would see a position apply and hear nothing. Week/month latter see a similar job posted. Why don’t they just hire me? I have the education and experience for the positions I am applying for. Finally one day I got a response in a form of a letter from there attorneys saying I apply to much, they are not going to hire me and stop applying. Is this legal? Isn’t that discrimination? I would not recommend them.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Portland, OR
    Anonymous Employee in Portland, OR
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Kindercare in June 2009.

    Interview Details

    The process was very long. It began with an initial phone discussion with an internal recruiter followed by a fairly long phone interview with the same recruiter. The next step consisted of a marathon session of in-person interviews in their corporate office with a variety of finance, operations and senior leadership staff. There were 3 individual interviews, 1 panel interview and 1 phone interview with an interviewer who was working from home that particular day.

    Interview Questions
    • The length of the in-person interview was the most difficult part. Also, several of the interviewers were unprepared and didn't have many questions to ask so I had to be more creative to explain why I was qualified for the position.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Kindercare in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    It felt like the most difficult interview i had ever been in because i was interviewed by the director and district manager at the same time.

    Interview Questions
    • Almost all of the questions were difficult coming from the district manager because kindercare not only goes by state minimum standards, they also have accreditation so they expect more from their staff. I got nervous at some point.   Answer Question
