    District Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rancho Cordova, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Kindercare (Rancho Cordova, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Interview process starts with a recruiter phone screen which overall is pretty standard. 2nd interview is with an RVP. In this case it is a very unscripted, somewhat unprofessional interview with little to no structure. I've never encountered an interviewer who used such fowl language during a conversation, it was quite alarming.
    3rd interview is with an HR business partner that lasts about 30 mins and is not very engaging. Process is very dated and unprofessional for a company that is educating children.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Kindercare (Sterling Heights, MI) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I was called for an interview a couple days after submitting my resume online. At the interview I was asked some questions by the director related to how I would handle certain situations and then I sat in on the PreK class for about an hour and a half. The only thing that I was assigned to do in that hour and a half was to help the students print their names on their cubby labels. I made sure that I interacted with the kids while they were doing carpet time. If they were fooling around I asked them to pay attention.when the teacher had the kids stand up and do I song I sang along.

    It was a very quick and easy process. Be prepared to do a lesson on your second interview. My Kindercare offered me the position after my second interview, but I am sure it varies depending on location.

    Teacher Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Kindercare in January 2017.

    Interview

    The process was simple. I applied online on indeed and received an email the following day about scheduling an interview and filling in their online application. I completed the online application and questionnaire as requested by the company. Afterwards, I went to the scheduled in person interview and it was a mess, I arrived on time and they had me wait for over twenty minutes to be seen. I was then introduced to the director of the location that was hiring, the director of another location, and the director of multiple locations. The interview was very uncomfortable since I had to sit in front of three people for a few minutes, than the director of the branch just left mid interview and I had no idea who was considering me for the opening. They only asked a couple of questions that didn't seem relevant to the position. Furthermore, the director was extremely loud for some reason, so my ears really hurt after the interview. They never went into details about the salary or hourly wage but, they asked me what I was looking for, and it seemed that they weren't willing to pay it, so I didn't know why it didn't end there. Instead, they asked if I was interested in another position than had me sit for another half a hour to speak with the director. Finally, the director came out, only to ask me if I filled out the application, and I responded with a confirmation of yes, than the director proceeded to tell me that he would look over it and get back to me tomorrow. Honestly, after the experience I had with them, it left a bad taste in my mouth, so as soon as I heard back from the director; I was brutally honest that I didn't appreciate the way I was treated in the interview and it wouldn't be a good fit.
