Sittercity is a great platform to meet parents who are seeking childcare.

I have met a lot of great families through Sitter city. It’s a very easy website to navigate and connect with families looking for nanny’s. I have always had a positive experience with the people I have met through sittercity and it is how I apply for new positions.

Pros

Easy to use

Set Your Own Hours with SitterCity

If you're looking for more control over your hours, I think SitterCity will be a good fit for you. The down side is that it will be up to you to reach out and find families that fit your criteria.

Pros

Set own schedule, You're your own boss

Cons

Inconsistent job opportunities, inconsistent income

I recommend

I have had a lot of success with this app, as I have been chosen as a babysitter for 2 wonderful families. Usually, parents will never respond to your applications, so you basically have to wait until someone reaches out to you with something that fits your schedule.

Pros

Lots of oppurtunity

Cons

App needs some work

Fulfilling

I enjoy the fulfilling nature of my career. I like helping parents to care for and raise their children. I'm making a difference one family at a time. I always wanted more children and nannying satiates that desire.

Fun, Flexible Work

I genuinely enjoy caring for the children at my job. I have learned that childcare can be rewarding in many aspects of life. I have never dealt with sitter city management. The workplace culture is dependent on the house but for the most part it is great. The hardest part of the job is finding a family that needs my services. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting paid to spend time with kiddos, which I love doing even without pay!(:

Expect the unexpected

Working with Sittercity is a different experience every time because each parent has different wants and needs for their children but I always enjoyed it and took pleasure in meeting the parents and child’s needs.

Not as many jobs

There isn't as much jobs. i haven't found a job in the app since 6 months ago. also the pay is below minimum wage since some only offer 10-. I do have experience but sometimes they ask for too much.
