    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kindercare (Dallas, TX) in July 2017.

    Interview

    It started off with a phone interview, then I got an in person interview. I went in for the interview that they had first scheduled for me, but when I got there, no one was there for me to have the interview. They told me that the head of the Kindercare that I was interviewing at had a meeting and could no longer meet with me and she simply forgot to call me and let me know. So I had to reschedule after I had driven all the way to Dallas for the initial interview. Then when I actually had the interview, they basically told me I was overqualified for the job.

    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.
