Ratings and Reviews
Helpful Job Hunting
There is a lot of opportunity in the Care app to find a job. But most importantly I appreciate the background check that’s offered in which helps connect with families of higher pay. I like how this app allows families to create profiles that states the schedule and some additional in-depth detail of what the job inquires because me as a nanny could review this and see if there is potential of being a good fit for each other. I also am able to create a profile of myself which allows families to review and reach out through private messaging if they’re interested, or if you private message a family they could take a peak at your profile before replying. I’ve had great luck.
The only thing I would recommend to the Care app is if there was a way when families research a nanny name that our personal pay rate is shown with our name. I say this because too often I have families that reach out to me but have an extremely low pay rate to offer which I unfortunately have to pass up because it doesn’t meet my personal needs/qualification.
Easy to use but....
This app has been easy to use and easy to create a profile. I love how easy it is to find a family (you do have to pay for premium but it’s worth it to find a family easier) I like the feature how you can get reviews from other families, but I wish there was a review you could give to the family. I’ve had families who were really nice and some who were not. There should be a review for the families profiles to let other caregivers know little more detailed about them. It seems like families can leave reviews about caregivers but what about caregivers giving reviews about the families?
I had a family who had many nanny’s before me (I had no idea until later and neighbors would say comments and even the kids did!) and she gave me a really hard time while trying to take care of her kids. She made it seem really professional and care free at first, but when I started watching her children she was always trying to control everything and stepping on my toes. At first, I didn’t mind it was like she was helping, but it just kept getting worse. It would be nice if someone had given a review saying some of those things. I wasted a good chunk of time when I could’ve been with a family for the long term. I just want other nanny’s to look out for one another in the nannying world. Thank you.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for sharing your detailed feedback! We are thrilled to hear that you have had great success in finding jobs! We appreciate your feedback about the review feature and will be submitting this feedback. In the future, please feel free to report a member of concern either by contacting us at email@example.com or within your message center report feature. There are three dots in the top right hand corner where you can access the report feature. Thanks again!
I noticed that I couldn’t get any good jobs without having a membership. That’s fair, I mean the developers need money to live. What’s not fair is ripping off honest people trying to find work. Like the developers mentioned, parents who have a premium account can talk to sitters without the premium membership. I had parents reach out to me this way so I was receiving a couple job offers without the premium membership. I decide to pay the membership, and now nobody is contacting me. Literally nobody, I got more job offers before I paid the membership. I understand the developers can’t control whether parents respond, but this is some really really sketchy stuff going on. Usually, companies pull scams like this and after you pay a small amount they’ll say “ just pay more” “just buy this and your problem will be solved” do you see why I think this is a major scam? Canceled my membership immediately and unless something changes fast, will not be going back.
EDIT: I tried that website provided by the developer. There is no option to directly communicate to anyone. Also, the problems keep ringing in, I lost a job because I had this typo on my profile, I I’ve been trying to fix it but it says pending. It’s said pending for 2 months now. Frustrating and would not recommend. SitterSitty is free and I’ve gotten jobs there, so would totally recommend that one.

Thank you for sharing your feedback and I am so very sorry to hear that you have not had the job experience that you had hoped. I did want to clarify that it is free to create an account and apply to jobs. We only require that one member be premium for communications beyond the initial application. Therefore, with your Premium Membership all members/ families can reply regardless of their account status. I also wanted to share that your message center is not "controlled" it functions just like emails from the other members. If you would like us to review your current status or discuss your concerns further, please contact us with your account information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
