    Center Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kindercare.

    Interview

    I applied online for a number of different Director positions and received an email for each. The emails were vague and didn't tell me which site the interviews were for (I wanted to know because some of the cities were more desirable than others). I asked the person I was in contact with and he refused to tell me. Even so, I set up a phone interview for one of the positions the following day. I prepared all night and woke up very early the next day for final preparations.

    The scheduled time came...and passed. I waited two hours and the interviewer never called. Haven't heard a think since.

    I haven't heard from them at all.

    Interview

    No interview, I informally met the director who I was referred to by a mutual friend and she hired me on the spot. Sent me to do a background check that day and then to orientation the following week. Policy has changed since. They must call professional references now before hiring a candidate.

    Negotiation

    None.

    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Kindercare in April 2016.

    Interview

    The Director asked questions to define me, she then asked more questions about what I applied for. She then took me into the toddler classroom to see how I interacted with kids. After 15 mins, she asked how I liked it. Then gave me a paper and told me to wait for an email because she had more interviews. Still waiting, my interview was yesterday though.
