Baby Sitter Interview Questions
Most times you would have you interview with the agency however sometimes families may want to interview you too. The best way to find a Baby Sitting job is to register with agencies and wait for them to call you for a job.
Baby sitting job can be part-time or full-time, sometimes parents may want to work with you regularly.
Interview questions for a babysitting role conducted by the family who you are potentially going to be babysitting for are most likely to be quite personal. Its a lot different to working in a business environment as you are in someone else’s house with their children, the most precious things they have and they are looking for someone to trust to look after their children.
Apart from general questions about your previous work experience they will want to know how you deal with certain situations for example: if you are being employed just to babysit at night potentially when the child/children are asleep they will want to know what you will do if they wake up and are upset? Will you go and check the children and how many times? If you are being employed to babysit in the day or when the children are awake they will want to know what you will do if a child refuses to do something such as eat their lunch, snack etc, how will you deal with this? They will want to know what kind of activities you will do with the children, whether you can take them to the park etc, do you drive, think about your situation/location and what you could do and where you could take them.
Should a family be interested in you, ensure that you recommend meeting with the children and spending an hour or so getting to know them so that the first time you are in a working situation they are aware of who you are.
