    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Head Start (South Bend, IN).

    Interview

    Answered questions of my knowledge on children. They wanted to know if I would be able to work with children with disabilities, speech and or learning. Would you hit a child? Would I be able to work with children that came to me from broken homes or were they haven't eating. Would I be willing to advance my education. It was a calming interview. They didn't badger or say negatives about the company.
