If you get a great family, you'll have a great job
Nanny (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – March 15, 2018
I had the opportunity to work with a nice mom with her 7-month-old baby. Real easy stuff, feeding the baby, carrying the baby, and all baby related activities, and I accompanied them on things like errands and mommy and me classes. Unfortunately, I made the rookie mistake of not getting my hours set in a contract, when I was hired she said she'd need me 25 to 30 hours a week, that never happened. She'd need me between 10 and 20 hours a week, that was not nearly enough money. So I strongly recommend that folks get their desired hours in the form of a contract.
You don't have control over your hours
Short breaks, not a lot of time to eat
