    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at La Petite Academy.

    Interview

    I got a call back within a week of applying, went in a day after being called in for an interview. The interview was a joke, the director just gossiped with me about the families that went there and told me how catty some of the employees were. She then proceeded to ask me two job related questions, admitted that she wanted me to work there and offered me the job.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at La Petite Academy (Glen Carbon, IL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online.
    The assistant director called me the next day and asked me to come in for an interview. She told me to bring in my Resume, transcripts from college (I'm still a student), references and a photo ID.
    The interview lasted about 20 minutes. She asked "what would you do" questions such as: If a child was hitting another child, what would you do?
    She was writing down and grading my answers on a sheet of paper.
    After that she gave me a tour of the school.
    Then she asked if I could come back for an Observation Interview. I accepted and then came came back 2 days later. During the observation interview I basically just followed two separate teachers around and they told me everything they could about how the school works. After about 2 hours the assistant director came back to the classroom to get me. She took me into a tiny office in the front of the building where I did my first interview and told me the Head Director wanted to interview me. The Head Director came in and basically asked questions about my availability and experience with children.
    She asked why I wanted to work at her facility and then asked if I had any questions.
    After that she had me fill out a background check waiver and then took my fingerprints.
    She thanked me for coming and said they would get back to me. 3 days later the Head Director called me and said my Background check came back and that everything was fine. She said she wanted to offer me a position and she was sending all of my info to the corporate manager so he could determine an hourly pay rate.
    3 days later they called me back and offered me a job. It all took a little more than a week, but it was so worth the wait.
