    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Tutor Time Child Care Learning Center (Wichita, KS) in May 2017.


    Excessive questions asking, albeit in different forms, all the same questions.
    Hiring manager was quite friendly and personable despite the ridiculous number of repeated inquiries.
    The amount of time allotted for the interview process as average. They packed a lot of junk into a small time frame.
