Great app! Great sitters!

I’ve used the app a few times to find a babysitter and have always had a great experience.

The app itself is easy to use. Choose the date and time of your required sit. Sitters apply for the job. You choose which sitter you like the sound of/hourly rate of. You get their phone no from an email confirmation so you can confirm things directly with the sitter. They turn up at required time and place. And they take over while you work/go out/whatever. At the end of the session you pay them through the app too, and it pays them to the penny for their time so no awkward scrabbling around trying to work out what you owe or looking for change 😉. Simple and effective.

The sitters tend to be fantastic. I say tend to be, as of 5 sitters I’ve booked, 1 did not turn up at all 🤬, 1 was an average personality and preferred talking to me than playing with my kid, and 3 we’re so tremendous I would move them in.

Great Concept but needs improving

The idea of Bubble is great, and I have babysat for some great families from it. However, I do feel it prioritises families over sitters for a few reasons and needs a few improvements .
Firstly, sitters can’t see their reviews which is frustrating as I would like to know how things went from the family’s end and to see if there’s anything I can improve on. Secondly, the app is not great, you can’t filter by time, and on the ‘regular jobs’ you have to click on each job to see the timings. Then when you come out of it, it takes you back to the top of the list again. Also, parents are allowed to modify the timings whenever they like, sometimes just before the sit, and can also cancel without any repercussions, whereas if a sitter cancels their profile gets deactivated. I understand the fee being taken from the sitter, however I would expect to be treated better as the worker if a percentage of my pay is being taken. The app can also be very glitchy, and sometimes I don’t see a message for days after it has been sent to me. I think parents should have a time limit on accepting a sit also, as sometimes they leave it days and then accept you at the last minute just before the sit. I think if these things got improved, it could be a great app, but it is definitely hard to get sits in the beginning and almost impossible to book an interview with their team!

Sitting experience

I really enjoy using this app as it is very simple - as a sitter you register, add dbs and first aid etc. and can then apply for any sitting jobs locally. There is a small fee taken out of your total earnings but it’s really small that you don’t really notice it.

Something I would really like to see added though is a button/note on the parents page where they can say food provided or not. As sitters we’re often expected to sit through meal times and most families generally don’t provide you with food. It can create a very awkward scenario of sitting watching the kids and parents eat. This can be really simply avoided by saying ‘food supplied’ or ‘food not supplied please bring your own’.

I would also like sitters to be able to see their reviews. Getting feedback is actually really helpful and can help us improve and grow as sitters. I find that parents are too tired/busy to give verbal feedback and usually put all their feedback in reviews, which we can’t actually see.
