    Teaching Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Primrose School in February 2017.

    Interview

    I interviewed twice with Primrose at two different locations. The first one I interviewed at twice. First interview was super easy. Standard interview questions. A few days after the first interview I was emailed and asked to come in for a second interview. When I got there, I was surprised to see that the lady who I had interviewed with the first time wasn't there and I was going to be interviewing with 2 other people. Not a big deal...but what annoyed me was that they lost the application I had filled out during my first visit (pretty irresponsible) and had me fill out another one. Interview went fine and was told they were looking to hire someone by that Friday. Well Friday rolls around and I hadn't heard anything. I sent a follow-up email to reinstate my interest. No response. The following Tuesday I decided to finally just call and ask what the status was. I was informed the position was filled. Is it REALLY that hard to send a simple email response letting a candidate you interviewed twice know that they moved forward with someone else?

    The second location I applied and was invited to stop by and fill out an application that same day. I went up there, filled out an application, and had the opportunity to speak with the Director before I left. She told me all looked good and asked for my date of birth so she can run a background check. She told me it would take a couple of days and (probably on Monday) she would call me when it came in to give me the information to go do my fingerprinting, etc. Hearing this pretty much led me to believe I got the job. I send a thank you email after (no response). Monday rolls around and no phone call. I decide to wait until the next day to call because maybe the background check hadn't came in yet. I call on Tuesday to ask what was going on and she sounded pissy that I was bothering her. She told me that they hadn't hired anyone yet and that she was busy doing a party. She took my name and told me she would call me back in a little bit. I knew there was a slim chance she would call me back. Did she ever? Nope. Very unprofessional to say you are going to do something and not do it (twice!).

    Moral of the story, this company left a HORRIBLE taste in my mouth with how they treat potential employees and no wonder they have such a high turn-over rate.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Primrose School (Tri Cities, WA).

    Interview

    A few days after submitting an application online, I received an email requesting an onsite interview. The time and date were picked out already, all I needed to do was confirm my attendance.
    The interview itself was with the director and lasted about 15-20 minutes. Then I was taken into the class that I would be in, if hired, to meet the students and the lead teacher. I stayed with them for about an hour and then the director came back to get me so we could finish the interview in her office.

    • How do you want your students to feel in your classroom?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was offered 2 positions on the spot at the end of the interview and I accepted the one I thought would best suit my skills and needs. I was prepared to negotiate as I was expecting to get the low end of pay rate. Especially after reading some of the salaries reported on here. I walked in there knowing I would not accept anything less than $13/hr but surprisingly they offered above that to start and I felt comfortable with the rate.

    Food Service/Housekeeping Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlotte, NC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Primrose School (Charlotte, NC).

    Interview

    Very unprofessional staff. Several of them were standing around in the front office gossiping/talking. I interviewed with someone who had only been with the company for a couple of months. I had to fill out ANOTHER application, once I arrived. Which then showed me the company lacked organization. I was taken into an office in which the door was left open. There seemed to have been no preparation for my interview which was a huge turn off. I believe this was a waste of my time but also a blessing in disguise! Never had an experience as such.
