The process was very quick and easy. I went in and did the interview in about 30 - 45 minutes. Just be yourself and try to remain calm.

I applied for the associate teacher position in August, had a phone interview and then a in person interview. The director told me she would call me by the end of the week. Never did, so I called numerous times. She finally told me to look out for some emails for my reference information checks. That took a whole week. And I received an email from the reference check company. And then I had to pick up this new employee packet with fingerprint documents & physical examination forms. And then I have to go through another background check & get service letters filled out. But I don’t have a start date yet. This has been the longest and most stressful process EVER! I’ve been a preschool teacher for 7 years and never had to go through this much stuff to get a job! I definitely hope it’s worth it!

You're interviewed about your experience, knowledge, and how you would handle specific situations. Then you do a working interview in a classroom where you interact with children and teachers provide feedback about how you did.

Sat down with center director- was asked about my previous employment and experience working with children and my schooling. Then I was thrown in the classroom to do a "trial run" which didn't prove anything considering I was in professional clothes not meant to be on the floor and the teachers were in the middle of their "lessons" and a new person disrupted the children's attention to focus.

It's very simple, my favorite part of the interview was the "working" interview where you go into a classroom and interact with the children for 30 minutes or less just to get a feel of the experience and also a chance to show off your skills and ask questions to the current employees.
