    Pros

    Benefits, hours, flexibility, great staff, family like atmosphere

    Cons

    The Salary, and labor hours for all center staff need improvement, but that is all child care not just kinder care and all knowledge universe centers.

    Advice to Management

    Give us more labor hours per child enrolled, children stay longer then 8 hours a day...need assistant directors to be salary so they don't take hours from staff, and cooks.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Kindercare (Renton, WA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I set an appointment up on the recruiter's calendar, she cancelled it because of something that came up and apologized. I reset the appointment for a new date on her calendar. I had to move my appointment, because the KU company changed my work hours for that week and then I apologized for the inconvenience. She was very cordial and understanding and let me set another appointment that would work for my new work schedule. We finally connected, had a very short conversation. The position I was applying for had been filled.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked if I would consider working further from my home area. I was asked why I wanted the position. The regional managers are out of state for a huge conference, she's going to talk with the regional manager to see if I would be a good fit for an area close to my home area.   Answer Question
