    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I received an email for an interview from a recruiter for COA. I gave a date I would be available, and she said that was fine and gave me a time and stated she would send a calendar invite for the interview. Presumably, the calendar invite would have the address where the interview was going to take place, who I was meeting with, and procedures for getting into the building. I don't know because I never received it. I emailed the recruiter to let her know I had never gotten the calendar invite and asked her to please confirm that I still had an interview scheduled for the previously discussed date and time. I did not get any response and was not even able to go to an interview. It has been a full week since I emailed her regarding my interview, and have not received any response. If for some reason they had decided not to interview me, at the very least I deserved an email stating so.

    Assistant Teacher Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Children Of America (Indianapolis, IN) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I went into the interview thinking I would be greeted by someone my age with years under their belt and instead got a young girl that could be my daughter. She tried acting like she had some authority when clearly she was desperate. She told me in my interview they were severely understaffed. That should have been red flag number 1.
