I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Kindercare in February 2010.

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Question – Are you a firm believer in time-out?   View Answers (2)
