    Educator Interview

    Average Interview

    Interview

    It was fine, not too hard, not too easy. The people were very nice but their questions definitely made you think. What I got from it is that the interviewer wanted something more than the standard answers that most people give. Make yourself known, make sure they know why you are passionate about getting this position.

    they had parents that were friends of the Childcare Director in the interview process which is overall an ethics violation if you ask me, they called the parents board members when in actuality that parent had a child in the classroom I would be teaching

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at YWCA.

    Interview

    Applied online and received a call which I believe was a pre-screening, talk for about 30 minutes and she said she was get back to me. Never was provided a follow up as to my status. I think they're looking for individuals from other states or new college graduates so they don't have to pay people with the actual experience.
