  • Poor Communication

    The app only allows you to text an applicant a certain amount of times. Therefore, you have to submit an interview or something to get your communication to your applicant. This is the worst app I have ever used.
  • SCAMS

    Nothing but scams. And creepy people that message caregivers for YEARS without any help from Care.com. They don’t care about caregivers whatsoever. You can’t even leave a review for parents but you can for sitters? We sitters are the ones risking everything to go to a complete strangers home to take care of children. The least care could do is support us. I’ve had scammers contact me. I’ve babysat for parents who stated they’d pay a certain amount but end up paying significantly less. Also there are MANY adds from parents offering LESS THAN MINIMUM WAGE! And care has banned sitters for informing those parents! Do not use this if you are a sitter or a professional nanny. I recommend using a local Facebook group. I’ve found unicorn family’s locally but nothing but risking, lying families on care. Best of luck sitters.

  • Not as user friendly as it should be

    I just signed up with Care.com and I cannot find the meanings of "premium" or the other symbols next to caregivers' names. The app does not allow me to see ALL ratings for a caregiver. For instance, 1 person is showing 3 1/3 starts over 8 ratings. But when I click to read reviews, only 4 reviews come up, all with 5 stars only. There is missing information and a big gap between 5 stars and 3 1/3 stars. All the ratings and definitions should be easy to find.
  • Useless

    What’s the point of this app if no one is available for when you need them or it’s waaaay to expensive to afford. I just needed a babysitter not a down payment on a car.
  • Frustrating tech-decent service

    We have used this service to hire babysitters for the last 11 years. The Care.com service is quite useful for finding our sitters. However the app and web site makes it difficult to sort applicants for your jobs. This should work more like a standard email and texting app, instead they display a lot of messages as a stream of consciousness with mixing my 52 applicants all together. They have little ability to sort, take notes on or rate applicants for personal review. On several occasions, we have mistaken one applicant for another because the messages seem to get mixed up between different applicants. Furthermore, you need to use the app to make phone calls for you because you can’t share phone numbers between sitters and yourself. I wish I could find a service that was as useful as Care.com that cared about the paying customers needs instead of constantly adding barriers to usefulness with their technology.
  • Absolutely Horrible

    I have not written an app review in at least 6 years but this is so bad it deserves 0 stars. People come on to this site to apply to jobs so they can earn some money. How great is it to find out after you apply to a job that you cant even talk to the person you applied to unless you pay for a membership?? Like what the f**k is that about. Im trying to earn money here but Im not even able to get responses to my applications because you want me to pay for a membership? At this point its easier to just advertise with posters on telephone poles and cheaper as well.

    I am shocked that an app that requests so much money for a subscription, they have no way other than email to get in contact with the company!
  • You won’t need credits soon, but you also don’t have enough

    I can’t apply for anything because I don’t have enough credits, but when will the needing credits actually end. I’m not forking out $25 when I need 1 credit to apply for a job less than a mile from me.
