    Application Details

    I applied in-person - interviewed at La Petite Academy in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I went to a job fair and got interviewed on the spot. The lady who did my interview so very friendly and nice and put me totally at ease. The interview itself took about twenty to thirty minutes. Afterwards, She showed me the classrooms and told me she's really interested in me and asked if I would want to work there. But before that could happen she said I needed to pass some kind of assessment and get my Finger Prints done. Then called me and said next week after getting approval from the management that she will call me and get me working.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 week - interviewed at La Petite Academy in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I got an interview the day of my call which was impressive. I met with the director who was friendly, professional, upfront and thorough. The questions she asked were relative to the job and were detailed. The interview lasted for one hour and then I was told to go home and go online to do an "assessment", upload my resume and fill out application. That process took an additional 45 minutes...but the website was easy to follow.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked how familiar I was with "USDA regulations"....which is a very open ended question. I had to ask a question back to determine exactly what she was referring to. There are many regulations and I was not sure what the point was.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at La Petite Academy in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the job in March and got a call for a interview 4/23, for teh next morning. I was thinking of not going to the interview because my fiancee' was having surgery the same morning, but being that working with children is my life long dream I just couldn't miss it. My interview was at 12 pm and i had to call to let them know i was running late, for me that is not usual at all so i was very nervous at that point. The director told me that she had another interview at 12:30pm so i could reschedule or wait once i get there, well turns out when i got there at like 12:55pm, no other applicant was there so as soon as i walked in the inter view was on! The director was ver nice and she seemed very understandable of my situation, she seemed to really love her job just as much as i see myself lovign children. She stated off the interview by asking me to explain my personality then she surprised me by doing the same and explaing hers. I really hope i get it I've been dreaming of this for sooo long!
