Ratings and Reviews
I’ve gotten jobs but worst website and app.
On the website when you get a new message it scrambles in with your old messages there’s no way of knowing what’s new and what’s old so you have to read through every single message to figure it out. I get a lot of scammers and spam messages throughout the week. When you use the app and someone sends you a message you’re not able to click on their profile from the app so you have to go onto the website to click on and view their profile then go back to the app and reply if that’s the route you want to go. I don’t use the app since I don’t feel like having to click through my email to go online to the website. It’s extremely difficult to navigate and frustrating for yourself and the parents.

Thank you for your feedback, we are sorry to hear you had a poor experience. We will definitely send your feedback through the appropriate channel.
The trust & safety of our members is something we take very seriously.
When scammers are identified appropriate steps are taken to remove their account from our site. Keep in mind, Sittercity is a public site. Some scammers do find a way through registration, but we scan our site daily for this type of activity. Although some of them stay on the site for a short period of time, our Trust and Safety team is eventually able to identify these accounts and remove them.
If you are continuing to see similar jobs posted by the same member, this is because they have come back in and created a new account using a different email address in order to re-post that job. Please reach out to our Customer Success team directly to report any suspicious accounts.
I haven’t been using this for very long but the one thing i find incredibly frustrating is that on the app there’s no option for pet sitting. anywhere. Yet on the website you can search by pet care jobs. i don’t understand this? there’s no search bar in the app to just search “pet sitting” either. I’m a college student with a part time job and pet sitting is much easier to fit into my schedule than babysitting, but it’s annoying to have to use the website to look everytime. I have also applied to a handful of one-time babysitting jobs and haven’t heard a response, which i understand is not the apps fault but i do think users should be required to respond, even to reject you. it saves applicants some time so we aren’t just refreshing our messages everyday and missing out on other jobs. i also think there should be some variations in the account settings. some of the “yes or no” questions are not that black and white and can be elaborated on so parents don’t look over you.

Hi Alexis, thank you for your feedback. Our app doesn’t have the same functionalities as the site just yet. Currently, you are only able to search and apply for childcare positions on the app. If you have a pet sitter or care companion profile, you can use your phone’s web browser to apply for these jobs. We do apologize for the inconvenience, and hope to have this feature up and running soon! We sincerely appreciate your feedback regarding responsiveness from parents and the account related questions. We take all opportunities to improve our customer's experience and will be passing along this feedback to our product team. We would love to hear more about your suggestions for the "yes or no" questions. Please email us at email@example.com so we can connect further!
Great site, but the app needs serious work
I’ll start by saying that I love sittercity. I recently got my first nannying gig on here since I moved across states, and I couldn’t be happier. The site is easy to navigate and use. But the app is no good. First of all, searching on the app yields the same results everyday, but when I go on the website and do the same search, I get new listings, so I don’t know what’s going on there. Secondly, applying to the job on the app is not the same as the site. On the site, my bio pops up as my suggested application and I just click apply to job. On the app, my bio doesn’t pop up at all, and if I go to copy and paste it, it doesn’t allow because apparently my bio is too long on the app but not the site. That makes no sense to me. I only have the app so I can see when I get messages from jobs immediately.
Overall I’ll give three stars, because Sittercity itself is great, but the app needs help.
