I worked at Doctors Express full-time
If you work with a good owner and/or center admin, you'll have a great experience. Work with you to get the hours you want, and depending on the center, some may allow you to be seen for free, which is SO valuable.
If upper management is sloppy, issues can arise. The main corporate company, AFC, is highly focused on growth, without spending enough time on the franchise/owner level. Need to practice what they preach.
Advice to Management
RESEARCH before you buy. Understand that it will be FULL TIME, not just a hands off experience. If you dive head first into your center and focus on making it truly successful from the ground up, you'll do well.
I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Doctors Express (Norwalk, CT (US)) in May 2016.
Short talk with manager, I called them to ask about any open positions. it took some time for them to get back to me, but eventually they asked me to come in and interview with them, short notice, same day, but i was available.
