    Assistant Teacher Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kiddie Academy (Longwood, FL) in September 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was about a week I believe. I went around to locations near me to apply on Friday and the next week I got a call for an interview. I went in and right off the bat they put me into a classroom to see if I would like to work in that room, I told them yes. I was there for about an hour to two hours. After that they gave me another call saying they would like to offer me a position. I took the job and its been the best job I've ever had. If you're looking to apply they might start you out as a "floater," which means going to different classrooms every hour giving teachers there lunch break, and then from there you could be put into a classroom. Facility is only open from 6:30am-6:30pm.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Kiddie Academy (Crystal Lake, IL) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Filled out an application online from the center's website. Didn't hear anything from them until over a month later (center wasn't even open yet, though). Had interview within a week. Was pretty normal interview; asked about experience, how I deal with children misbehaving, what makes for a positive classroom atmosphere, etc. Got a call with job offer within a week and a half after the interview. Delays in construction and DCFS requirements caused the job to start two months later.

    Interview Questions

    • Can't remember there being any difficult or unexpected questions...it was a pretty standard interview that went well.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Hourly pay was non-negotiable. It was "take it or leave it".

    Declined Offer

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kiddie Academy.

    Interview

    I applied to a brand new facility not yet opened, so I had to go to another location to interview.
    I drove 40 minutes to get there, arrived 10 minutes early, waited for 25 minutes, only to have the interview last 5 minutes!!
    They didn't ask me anything about myself as a teacher. She asked why I left my last job, what I'm looking for in my search, and how much I wanted to get paid. That's IT.
    I left the interview knowing I could never work there. I'd say this is a step below KinderCare.

    Interview Questions

    • NONE. She asked me ZERO questions about my teaching techniques or personality or anything about me.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Interview process is your typical. Asks you general and tedious questions. Scenario based questions of what you would do. Not very hard questions just want to know how you handle pressure.
