Hopeful and waiting
I signed up today and I’ve already gotten 2 people asking for a meeting!! Very fast results. Only short of one star because I haven’t exactly started. Communication is great but if I actually do get the job then I’d gladly change it to a 5 star and confirm the app works!
I will say that uploading my photo was a bit of a problem. From my phone the file was too big and I had to use my schools computer to upload it. This app is better than care now as it didn’t require background checks to still look for us poor college students who can’t afford $60 for it. Thanks guys! Saved my pockets this summer!
Just wanted to come back and say yes the app works! I got my first job already within a week!

Great to find PT & Occasional Nanny Jobs
I have found 2 regular PT jobs via the App. My second regular PT job began as an occasional position and turned into a regular PT job as soon as the 1st job ended. Mom scooped me up before I could apply for another job.
I also had an another occasional Nanny position to fill in for a couple who both worked Retail Management jobs when their regular Nanny was unavailable.
The only complaint I have is the short length of time that the self-paid background checks. I think 6 months would be more fair. The App could include the date background check was run and allow the hiring family to repeat the background check if they preferred a more recent one.

Needs some work
I decided to use an app for finding babysitters bc we move every two years or less and the search is exhausting.
What I like about SitterCity: it will allow reviews to be posted, allows messaging, and the search feature is decent.
What is eternally frustrating: very few people have background checks (for a paid service this should be required,) not being able to sort results based on distance, not being able to sort results based on reviews, ***not being able to “favorite” or “save” people*** if I am interested but it’s not a great time to message them or I don’t currently need a sitter.
When I’ve created a search I can’t save the search or the results and if I come back to it in a few days often don’t remember which profiles I’ve clicked on and which I haven’t. This app has also crashed on me twice after sending lengthy introductory messages.

Thanks so much for sharing your feedback! We are constantly working on updating the Sittercity app in hopes to make it more user-friendly and as feature packed as the full website. The website does have a "favorite" feature and a full Help Center. You can log in on a web browser on your phone. We appreciate your patience with this.
