    The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Kindercare (Wheaton, IL) in November 2010.

    Interview

    pretty much a 1:1 interview then a meeting with 2:1 interview

    and i had to create my own activity for the kids to do and demonstrate that i could handle them.

    Negotiation

    check glass door for salaries, and dont expect any more than they give you - but consider asking for 10% more than you were offered if you want.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Kindercare (Vienna, VA) in February 2010.

    Interview

    Director of the center was on the phone for personal use during the time of our interview, which I thought was very unprofessional. The director asked the standard interview question (tell me about yourself, why do you want to work with children, etc). I was asked to come back to the center several times to fill out various paper works and pay/salary was not discussed until the job offer letter was written.
