  • Difficult App To Find Quality Help

    Many disconnects. Interview system does not work well. System says it is calling the person but it really is not, was sitting with the babysitter and we tested the app, both our calls and texts did not go through to each other. Multiple people applying that are not legal to work. Have not had success finding anyone of good quality experience.
  • DO NOT USE Care.com

    Unfortunately the value of this site has decreased significantly. They made a lot of changes that only benefits families and Care.com While caregivers (who are already unemployed) have to pay for features/services. We are also heavily judge making the already slow process even more difficult. The chances of finding a honest stable employer are little to none. So NO, I would not recommend Care.com

    I enjoy using this app. I feel it is a trustworthy app, allowing certain individuals with background checks making others feel at ease of finding someone for their needs!
  • Great for jobs (only if you pay though), and for families,

    I’m updating my previously negative review, since I became a paid subscriber on here amd paid for my drivers license check, I have actually been able to apply to work and get offered positions. One of the families I have met is generous, kind, and the child is just a doll. Someone else I met offsite says they had bookmarked my profile on the site also, so apparently my name and profile is getting out there. Now, the downsides: 1. People are able to leave reviews of someone who never worked for them. That happened to me. A disgruntled lady, possibly my own competition, left me a puzzling and rather curt review. I never even met the woman! Care.com would not take my word for it and take it down. No worries...I still garnered a 5 star rating. 2. Also it seems that there is no protection for sitters and tutors against scammers, catfishers and perverts. Why encourage sitters, especially young ones, to put their photos, phone numbers and personal background check info on a site where we can be hurt by "families" who may not be who they say they are? Definitely more checks need to be in place, such as background checking these families! There are quite a few phishing profiles I’ve run to of fake jobs that try to get my email or phone number by getting me to talk offsite. Always, always speak to the people onsite and then call through the app. So much safer. Avoid the nigerian scammers, the phishers, spammers and weirdos.

    It's very easy to use and I've found sitters, house cleaners, and someone to help with errands. It's definitely a time saver for me and my family!

    I used to love this app, a year and a half ago I found a nanny for my kids on here and everything went perfect, now that she is leaving to travel I have been in a time crunch to find a new sitter. After posting a job and getting a couple responses who could only be backup sitters the app started blocking all incoming messages and not letting me respond. Telling me I NOW had to pay. Well, $55 for one month is ridiculous when looking for one nanny for the long run. And getting down to the wire with only 2 weeks before I was without a sitter I finally forked out the $55, messaged about 20 people (whose profile SAID they were available the days and times I needed) and only got 3 responses from girls who said they weren’t available those days. And THEN the two girls who said they were available and interested, once I responded to their email asking when they would like to meet, I have never heard a response back after a week. Maybe it’s their side of the system blocking messages like mine had been or them being unprofessional, I have no clue. But this app was a complete waste of time and money. And now with one day before I need a new sitter or I’m out of work, I have to look some place else and hope for a miracle.

    Well the messenger doesn’t but sometimes and that’s extremely annoying when you need to get ahold of someone. Please fix that and I’ll be happy.
