    Love the website and the tips however I have come across some background checks that were not accurate checking a different site. Something for your site to be aware of

    I am unable to have families reply to me to actually land a job because this stupid app only leta people respond to you if you pay for premium. Such a huge waste of my time looking for jobs I could never actually hear back from.
  • What a bunch of junk

    There should be a disclaimer saying you have pay an outrageous $35 a month just to review and answer those that respond to your request. What a bunch of CRAP!! I hate when people try to be sneaking in the back door. BE UP FRONT!!
  • Communication vital!

    I was a member for 3 years! After early retirement from family counseling I found care.com helpful with looking at my options for helping families in a new way! First family that had 3 children 6 and under had hired me knowing they would be relocating so short lived! Person before me had a problem that surfaced and they let go! A serious problem ! But we all were for the good! Communication! Another family of 3! I accepted and serious problems between parents ! They are now divorced! That was ok as I had professional experience helping children with these dynamics! When helping any family as care provider you take a risk ! You can lesson that risk with being as best prepared as possible by asking questions and letting them know your expectations and explaining what you can offer and need to be an exceptional care provider ! Some families don’t want ( for example) their children out of home area much ! You might want to take children out to parks events and other ! That would not be a good fit for either of you ! I helped one family who accepted that wanting to have child engaged in away from home activities and then changed ! That was not healthy for me and they did not live up to their word! They wrote review after I gave notice and that was totally unfair ! I found a couple with first child and had a wonderful experience as did they for 6 years ! Part time and helped with all areas of the child’s development! Still very connected and we are all extended family ! There does need to be better communication of issues care providers can face if negative feedback is given about provider ! I hope to talk about this with the appropriate person ! My profile was taken off!!! I had no dialogue with anyone ! So I am interested again in a part time helping newborn but need to talk with care.com before anything else!

    All the sitters I’ve had have been flaky. They charge more than what they are worth. They are unprofessional and unreliable. It you want someone who is truly a caregiver so not hire anyone under 30 years old.

  • Distance not accurate

    I saw that a preschool was looking for someone to hire and it said the school was 17miles on Care but when I google mapped it, it was actually 24 miles a way, and since they ask for everyone’s address when signing up I thought they would give a more accurate distance of how far the location is from where you are. This isn’t the first time this has happened. Ever since I’ve been on Care I’ve noticed the distance turns out to be way further than what it shows. And showing that a job is 17 miles a way from your location is way different than it actually being 24 miles. I prefer to work somewhere close to my house so when I apply for a nanny job that’s further than what it shows it can be a bit frustrating.
