After School Program Staff Interview

After School Program Staff
Seattle, WA (US)

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Boys & Girls Clubs in December 2012.

Interview Details I responded to an ad on Craigslist and received an invitation to interview within a week. I was asked to show up with a my resume and a list of activities I would consider leading with the children. I interviewed with the Child Care Director and the teacher with whom I would be working. It was very laid back. They asked basic questions about my previous experience and why I wanted to work with kids. They also shared stories about the kids they worked with, giving me a good idea of what to expect on the job. At the end, I was invited back for a working interview so that they could evaluate how I interacted or "clicked" with the kids.

Interview Question – All questions were pretty basic. They gave scenarios that were a little trick to answer because I didn't know their policies. "Pretend you are serving the kids snack (family style) and one kid begins to complain and make a scene saying that somebody got an unfair amount. How would you react to or diffuse the situation?"   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There's not much room to negotiate salary but your schedule is pretty flexible.
