They hire on the spot because their turnover is so high. Just know that your title as teacher is ridiculous, you are simply a warm body there to watch kids. That is it!

The salary varies you're paid hourly, they will not allow you to work past 35 hrs a week, so be prepared to get sent home when it benefits them and there are no benefits until after a year which is not communicated when they offer you the position on the spot. This place is truly awful.

The salary depends. Education and experience has nothing to do with it because the majority of people who work here have very little if any education. It ranges between $10-13/hr

The center director interviews and ultimately decides if you'll fit in. You do the interview with her, then a working interview to see if you mesh well with the kids. Those two interviews are considered, and then you may be offered a job.

As someone that is part of management, I suggest always being positive and bright. The field is not easy, but seeing your passion naturally shine through will make the biggest difference in the hiring process.
