Lead Teacher Interview

Anonymous Employee in Lincoln, NE

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Kindercare (Lincoln, NE).

Interview

Lengthy. The director made it seem like a perfect job. Called over and over, finally got hired. Turns out everything she said was lies. Now I've been working a while and all the promises in the interview were bogus. They aren't hiring teachers throughout, just warm bodies in rooms to keep ratios at bay. Treat people horribly. Run now.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kindercare in September 2016.

    Interview

    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.

    Easy. Pretty Standard for a teaching position. There was first a quick phone introduction and that is when we scheduled a day to come in and have an interview. They hired me on the spot and we took a tour of the location. After my fingerprints were in I was able to start working.

    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.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Kindercare (Chatham, NJ) in November 2015.

    Negotiation

    I tried to negotiate and the supervisor was not able to but explained I could get a raise after working. I received a raise after two months.
