app functionality could be better

The system to find childcare is great but the app functionality isn’t. It shows a notification for a new message but then you have to pull down/refresh to actually see a new message. Spell check doesn’t work (I have an Apple 11) on initial messages but it does work on subsequent responses. It’s clear from reading profiles/bios that spell check doesn’t work on job posts or profiles either. Also, if you’re in a search and get out to message someone and go back in, the search reloads and you lose your place. And if you click “message” on someone in a search, it doesn’t show if you’ve already messaged them or any conversation history until you go in through the messages section. It’s certainly a great resource for finding people but functionality could really use some finesse.

Dissapointing and frustrating

The standard of etiquette by the applicants is frustrating- especially when I’m looking for someone to take care of MY CHILD in MY HOME. I’ve interviewed entry level position applicants that have better manners and respect for the hiring company. People will apply and then not answer when I respond, or they will set up an interview and then cancel last minute or not show up. The applicants with good intentions supposedly don’t get notifications. So you’re forced to give your number so you can continue a conversation.

We pay a membership, but then still have to pay additional to get background checks and mvr. Pictures should be required. Cpr and first aid should be required. They should be required to answer questions when they “apply” ... make them put in more effort to pay attention to what is required of the job.

There’s also no way to anonymously review bad applicants- it has to display your name. I’ve been looking for a nanny for two months now and this game is exhausting.

Awful

Not user friendly at all. The app hardly functions half the time. For what I paid, I had higher expectations. I was also asked to review someone recently who I had hired outside of the app (since the app would not continue to allow us to message for some reason or another) and I couldn’t even give her a review because the app demanded I pay to be verified (additional $15 to the $70 something I already paid) before it would allow me to leave a review for her. I do not recommend this app to anyone.

I’m not the kind of person to go out of my way to leave crappy review, let alone submitting reviews often anyway. I’m just hoping I can save at least one other person from the headache I had to deal with. *I would insert an eye roll gif here if I could*
