    Assistant Teacher Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Kindercare.

    Interview

    Very poor communication skills from recruiter. Originally missed our scheduled phone interview. She then called me out of the blue 4 days later and requested an in person interview. She asked me to call back later that day. I called back and was followed by no response, instead an email stating they were no longer interested in interviewing me.

    Very poor communication. Why would I want to work for a company that does this? No longer interested. Not even phased.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Kindercare in May 2017.

    Interview

    The recruiter reached out to me and initiated a phone interview. We had a nearly 1 hour phone interview and it was very positive. She was very knowledgeable about the company, we talked about my background, skills, and it ended on a very positive note with the expectation that I would proceed to the next round of phone interviews. I was instructed that they take their time and are slow to hire, so to contact her if I did not hear back within a week. I have reached out a few times since then (over five weeks ago) and have never heard back. I was disappointed as during the phone interview I was told that my background was a perfect fit and in line with the type of candidates they have been hiring with successful results. I would have liked to at least heard back, even if the resulting answer was no.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Kindercare (Arlington, TX) in April 2017.

    Interview

    My interview was about 45 mins long. I was interviewed by the director and assistant director. They were both very nice and asked me a lot of questions about my experience and background. The director explained the way the curriculum was set up and even showed me the book that they used... I was impressed. She explained to me what she was looking for and asked me what I had to offer, along with that she presented me with several different scenarios to see how I would respond. I enjoyed their process and it was a relief to hear their passion for education and improving the facility. I was sent an offer letter the next day and was able to complete new hire paperwork online.
