Summer Camp Interview

Summer Camp
Alpharetta, GA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Primrose School in May 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online for the position on a Friday and received an email the following Wednesday that asked me to call and schedule an interview. I called and scheduled the interview for that Friday. Once I arrived, I was greeted by the two women at the front desk who were both very friendly. I was given an application to fill out and once I finished, I went to a back room for the interview part. The woman who interviewed me was extremely nice and easy to talk to, which made me feel comfortable. It was a basic, get-to-know me interview. She just asked questions about myself and what kind of experience I had. She explained to me what the position would involve and how the process would go. She then told me that she would she would pass my application along and that I should get a call soon to come back for a second interview.

Teacher Interview

Teacher
Houston, TX

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Primrose School in September 2012.

Interview Details – I walked in to apply, and I was given an interview date that same day. I came back a week later for my interview, and was able to go straight into the next step of the interview process, which is an observation. The interview was less than 10 minutes. I observed all day in one class, the class I worked in once I was hired. The teachers have to think you will be an asset to their team or else the director will let you observe in another class or you won't get hired. I started wok on the first day of their pay period so I could get paid the next time they go t paid.

Interview Question – The most difficult question I recall would be when they asked me how would I handle a rowdy child with an unresponsive parent, unresponsive meaning we can tell that their is nothing being done at home to change or improve the situation.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – You are able to negotiate your pay depending on your experience and education. The negotiation phase is very easy and quick.
