I worked at American Child Care part-time (Less than a year)
It was great being able to choose your own schedule and working the off hours that you could. You only have to submit your upcoming week's schedule so they are very accommodating and flexible as far as that goes. Good pay and definitely worth it for supplemental income.
They expect you to communicate with them and submit your availability exactly when needed, which is expected, but they don't reciprocate the communication. There would be weeks when I wasn't sure if I had any jobs and would have to contact them to find out, instead of them just responding to emails.
I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at American Child Care (Chicago, IL) in March 2015.
I went to the office in Lakeview for the interview where an employee interviewed me about my past babysitting/nanny experience. I was asked to come with three references, and once my background check was run through and approved, I was required to take a CPR certification class for my certificate before beginning the work. The process was fairly simple but still structured and thorough enough for the childcare industry.
