    Lead Teacher Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Akron, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Childtime Learning Center (Akron, OH) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The director completely glossed over the fact that I was cocky, brash and cussed. It was a doomed relationship from the get-go. I had even told my spouse that I had a bad feeling about the place. I was hired based solely because my personality was the complete opposite of the person who had previously held that position.

    Interview Questions

    • I honestly don't remember. I just remember the director telling me that I would be a great fit for the position and asking me when I could start after about 10 minutes of small talk. It felt more like between my personality being the opposite of what was there before and the desperate need for a warm body I was essentially handed the keys to the car and told to drive. But I was told to drive with no training. Seriously. My training was watching a bunch of videos on a laptop. And of those videos, I learned more about their self-made cleaning solution and how they wanted you to spray things down than I did about policies and procedures.   Answer Question

    It was real busy because it was around Christmas. Asked me typical questions about classroom management and how I would structure a day with the children. Because I came at the end of the year. The holidays delayed the process. It took 2 weeks for me to hear back.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. Just waited for corporate to approve the application and my pay. Tried to negotiate part time hours but they said to go through part time first before full time. Plus I came under the sign on bonus they are having.

    The interviewing process truly begins at home upon receiving an e-mailed invitation to fill out additional paper work after completing the online assessment. After which I received a phone call from the establishment the following day. Once, at the Day Care facility you are asked to complete another application form that primarily focuses on your prior child care experience. Overall the interview went amazing, everyone was more than welcoming, and the environment was comfortable yet professional.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Childtime Learning Center in October 2015.

    Interview

    Was called to interview. I arrived 20 minutes early but wasn't called back until 10-15 minutes AFTER our scheduled appointment. There were no other interviewees or pressing matters, such as parents. Interview went well, and I was called back the next day and hired via phone. I sent in all of my information as requested, including desired salary. She called back to tell me she could offer me $7.50/hr and I responded that I really could take no less than $10/hr having graduated with a M.ED. She said that she knows some employees negotiate their pay and that she'd contact me with a response within 24 hours. I never recieved another call. Common courtesy would have been to have a final, "sorry, no can do."
