    Interview

    No interview, I informally met the director who I was referred to by a mutual friend and she hired me on the spot. Sent me to do a background check that day and then to orientation the following week. Policy has changed since. They must call professional references now before hiring a candidate.

    Negotiation

    None.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Kindercare.

    Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kindercare (Noblesville, IN) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I was given 2 in person interviews with the Director and Assistant Director. it was very informal. I think they wanted to see if I would be a good fit. the first interview was with just the Director and the second one was with both the Director and Assistant Director. at the end of the interview, I was given a tour of the facility. the kids were quite well behaved making me believe that it was an excellent place to work.
