Housekeeping (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – February 22, 2019
I enjoyed working for care.com, although I didn't stay long. But the person who hired me was very nice and consistent with finding me jobs,and called me right away. When it was time for my pay she sent my money right away. If I could I would work for this company again.
Babysitter (Former Employee) – Klamath Falls, OR – February 19, 2019
Its an easy way to become a babysitter and look for a job or even post a job. It isnt just being a babysitter you could end up looking after elderly people, pets, kids, house cleaning. you can make your own price on how much to charge.
Observer (Former Employee) – Puget Sound, WA – February 19, 2019
When everything works, it works well; caregivers get paid and guardians have an easy way to receive care for their dependents. However, should ANYTHING go wrong, zero support should be expected from Care.com. It is likely you will spend months trying to find a single US contact number, only to be told that their automated processes are infallible and that what is broken cannot be fixed.
Nanny and Dog sitter (Former Employee) – Castro Valley, CA – February 14, 2019
I would get to work and usually follow the list whether its was errands or chores. Play both indoor and outdoor activities. Read books and help with homework if needed. Make sure to have lunch/ dinner for them. And do sing alongs and dance alongs. Making sure they take their naps. I love working with children I enjoy teaching them new activities.
Great way to find a nanny, tutor, pet care, and even senior care!
Babysitter (Former Employee) – Hillard, FL – February 14, 2019
My typical day at work was fun! I got to play with two little boys and learned different things to help me in life. I would prepare meals at least once a week for the boys. I would have to make sure that they completed their reading assignments and would get them to help keep the house cleaned. I learned not to let the boys push me around, I had to be the one to make final decisions not letting the boys persuade me in any direction, I learned what it is like taking care of twins, and I learned time management, having to be somewhere at a certain time.
Nanny/Babysitter (Current Employee) – Portage, MI – February 13, 2019
I love working with kids, being a nanny through care.com has so far been the best fit for my current life. I love the pay and flexibility. Being able to choose a job that works for my schedule is amazing.
Caregiver (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – February 12, 2019
With care.com you get to make your own schedule and work when you want. You can have 1 or 5 different profiles doing a variety of jobs. You van meet new people and make life time friends! I can't remember but I believe they do a background check on you so that's a bonus to people looking for caregivers, chauffeurs etc.
Care.com allowed me to have flexible hours based on the jobs chosen but bad pay that didn't fit the cost of living, no true proof of income, and no background checks on families looking to hire, leaving babysitters and nannies to fend for themselves.
NANNY (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – February 6, 2019
Working with different families will result in different ratings. some families are calm and easy going, others are chaotic and unorganized. this is a job for someone is is willing to constantly adapt and think quick.
personal tutor (Former Employee) – Victorville, CA – February 3, 2019
As a full time student at the time I really enjoyed having such a flexible schedule. However, working so little throughout the week as a tutor for one family did not allow me to make enough money sufficient for living. It did give me experience in my desired field but the job was just not secure enough.
