Too many hidden charges , they will nickel and dime you to death. Be very careful when you navigate their site. It's a amazing concept , but be wary.

I left because I kept getting SCAM calls on my cell phone after signing up for your service. More than one tried to tell me they would send me a money order for $400 that I would need to take to my bank & cash. Keep $200 and give them $200. One told me they would give me money to pay for their child's wheelchair when it was delivered and I'd get to keep the remainder of the fee. I dont think so. Scam Scam Scam

I've been a caregiver/teacher for almost 20 years. There is a lot of information that could be collected from families to help clarify expectations for both parties. Also, I would love to be able to give my review of a family. Caregivers aren't the only ones that should get rated.

U didn't leave Care com they left me. U worked through them for near seven yrs. When I finished my commitment to .my family U wanted to renew my membership and get my background check. They refused me. I've had good relationships with my employers and highly experienced. Yet there are couples in my area that are waiting to find a good nanny and Care.com is doing them a great disservice. Let them decide if they want someone who just fell into the job or someone who has 30+ yrs experience? Don't do this to your nannies they are the center of your business.

I would suggest they have a portion of job posting that states if a family requires a certain commitment. Ex. In need of a nanny that can provide care for my children for _______ months/years.
