GREAT WAY TO PUT YOURSELF OUT THERE!
I am a background checked, CPR certified and FIRST AID trained, well experienced college student with a clean driving record, a car, and AMAZING references due to my past jobs and my current job as an 'assistant teacher' at a schoolhouse. That being said, I've tried flyers, facebook job postings, other babysitting/nannying apps and nothing has surpassed Sittercity. Sittercity has brought me several jobs and I couldn't be happier! At first, it was definitely slow, but as I tweaked my bio and my profile picture and other preferences, jobs started to come in. A plus about Sittercity is that it's free unlike other websites! In LOVE with this app. I definitely give it a ten out of ten and would recommend to anyone trying to get their job postings out there. ☺️

HI Sabby, thanks so much for your review! We're happy to hear that you've had great luck connecting with families through the app, and are happy to have you on our platform :)
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!
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!
