    When communicating with applicants is super easy to use and gives you the opportunity to respond quickly.
  • Stupid.

    Honestly though why would I pay money to get looked at when the whole point is to try and find a job to get money. If you are going to charge it at least make it a reasonable price.

    At first I liked the app. But then I realized they are mischievous. I started an account trying to find a babysitter for my son. I searched for one and all the babysitters that come up were far and paid premium to the app. But guess what???!! There is a babysitter in my building who did not pay the premium and she never came up in my search and I never came up in her search either. Now I am working with that babysitter and extremely happy with her! What this app is doing is really bad! Trying to show that whoever pays more becomes qualified and ready to work!!!! Disgraceful and disgusting what you guys are doing!!! You are very dishonest! I was going to buy a premium and search for maids and other services but not anymore after discovering what they have been doing.

    I set up an account, then I downloaded the app and the app won’t let me log in.

    This app used to be great. Then I had a ton of problems paying my caregiver. And now I cannot cancel the job, THAT ENDED 2 weeks ago! I even called. I still get asked everyday if I want to pay her.... there doesn’t seem to be a way to terminate the job in the app or online. And apparently nobody there knows how to do it since I was on hold for over 10 minutes while they tried to figure it out.

    I tried to create a care giver profile to look for house keeping jobs. On my computer/desktop the website would only let me create a profile to hire someone which is the opposite of what I want. Downloaded the app on my phone and went to log in thru the app and it said I had to download the app first. I already did. So confusing. Hate this app.

    The app is not actually connected to the web site so if you get prompted to download the app (like I did) when you go to the website on your phone DO NOT download it. It won’t connect instead will charge you another $39.99. Also, the customer service is awful. I called to cancel after being charged the next month (though I only signed up for one AND cancelled my subscription l) and they said it had been cancelled and refunded. 3 months later I see I’m still being charged $39.99... again I call to cancel, this time my call was answered by a call center. The woman (conveniently ) states “there are no notes in the system saying you cancelled, however I can refund you 1 month.” Well, that’s a good start but what about the remaining $79.98? I’m not wasting my money on Care.com’s mistake. Of course I get the usual blah blah blah from here, “that’s all I can provide for you ma’am” and “no I can’t transfer you to anyone else but they will call you” and “we will reach out to you with a response by e-mail n the next 7-10 business days” etc etc... Waste of time. Worst part is we never even found care because though I filled out a very detailed schedule, the amount I could pay and the hours I needed, everyone and their mom who doesn’t fit the above stated needs reached out with none (literally none) matching up with what we were looking for. Save your time and save your money.
  • Best site by far!!

    I have a background check that I just had done for free that includes SSN Trace, Sex offender search, Global Watchlist Search,National Criminal Search, Federal Criminal Search, County Criminal Searches, and a Motor Vehicle Report. but I can’t upload it, theres no way to upload files that you have. You have to buy it off of care.com which is BS. This is preventing me from becoming a “carepro.” Alongside of uploading files, there should be a portfolio section where you can upload a background check, a resume, certifications, and other credentials and files specific to your job applications. There is “the file cabinet” but it won’t let you upload anything. The only thing you can do is file your w4, so that section is a waste of a resource. Where is the wepay section?? You should have that in pay& benefits! I cannot believe that there is no place that you can write in your direct deposit account information. So frustrating. How can people be proactive about getting their accounts set up? I have to click all over this entire website to figure out how to do what I want to do. Your app doesn’t work well. When you ask to “request a payment” under the Pay& Benefits tab, it shows you all of these people that I haven’t worked with but says I’ve been hired by them. When I haven’t even talked to half of them. There were so many of them that the one person that I actually worked for wasn’t even on there and I have to close out, find his profile, and request payment that way to get to him. So ridiculous On your app, I’ve requested payments that then don’t show up on your actual website even when I wait days afterwards for it to show up. For my schedule, my first family also was using care.com for the first time and didn’t know how to navigate around either. He scheduled me from 7:30-4:30 for the next 4 weeks when he only needed me for 1 week. He doesn’t know how to change it, and I don’t have the authority change it, so now my schedule is incorrect to other users for the next 4 weeks. I should be able to manage my own schedule manually. Under upcoming bookings, I have a booking that was scheduled for June 4th that is just sitting there because there’s no way to complete or cancel it to make it go away. Also when you click on it to see the details, the “cancel” button doesn’t work. You have to click outside of the screen for it to go away. Just annoying
  • Pretty good for the most part
