    I have been working between this app and two browsers on my computer to try and get anything done. The whole experience has been MADDENING. On Chrome, there is no way to reply to messages or schedule someone. On this app, filling out the profile is impossible. I have uploaded a pic over 10 times now and it keeps not showing. I tried to fill of the bio section and the letters stacked in a *vertical column*! THEN I got an “Alert” that my bio wasn’t approved (presumably because my bio was wonky?). From the app, I clicked on the link to fix the problem. A browser window was opened (?!) where I was directed back to the homepage of the app where I had to then navigate to the page I wanted. I downloaded some kind of messaging tool when I was desperate to communicate and couldn’t in Chrome. I have no idea how to access it. Where did it go? In the messages section, there is no way to archive, sort, filter, or move messages. Maybe I’m looking for a dog walker AND a house cleaner. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to put those in different folders? What about all the wonderful nannies who aren’t available now, but will be later? I don’t want to delete their messages...
  • Messaging does not work!

    By LizM217
    The app works fine, but the desktop site does not. I’ve had some luck with this app as far as finding a sitter. However, the Messaging system does not work properly on my MacBook. I’ve contacted tech support and followed all instructions to clear cookies, etc. Still does not work. I provided them with my operating system and browser info. They say they cannot duplicate the problem and implied that I don’t know how to use my own computer by explaining how my scroll bar works. I know how it works! I use my computer everyday. The scroll bar is simply not there in the Messaging part of the site. Therefore, you cannot scroll down to view additional messages, and you can’t scroll down on the active message to read the entire message. There simply is no scroll bar! It is inconvenient to only be able read and send messages on my phone! And for the price of this service, it should work! So technically the app works fine, but don’t waste your money if you are a MacBook user and plan to use the full site on your computer.
  • Stressful, time consuming, expensive

    In theory this app and service is great, but the reality is it is expensive, and half of the people who respond to your job postings aren’t available for the actual job, or just don’t show up. I have managed to find several care givers through the app (2 total, but I probably messaged back and forth with between 10-20 just to get to that point). It was stressful and time consuming. The app itself works pretty well, and is fairly easy to navigate, but it isn’t clear when posting jobs how to indicate what date/time the job is for (my recommendation is to put it prominently in the TITLE of the job posting, otherwise people who are not even available for that day or time will reply to the job posting!) My other major complaint is the majority of people who respond to your job posts have no intention of following through, and although they initially seem interested just totally flake out! I wish they could vet the caregivers a little more thoroughly.
  • Horrible treatment toward nannies and caregivers

    By Goforchristinam
    Care has always has a disconnect representing the nannies, encouraging families to pay nannies below minimum wage, and does nothing to inform the parents of laws. Yes, it’s basically a matching service site, but for how much parents pay, they do not provide much. The site is over priced for parents. You might as well pay the extra fee and use a nanny agency as you still have to do a lot of work for what you are paying to merely use the site. On the nanny end, they are double dipping in getting nannies to pay for memberships despite the fact that they would not have anything to provide parents without them. Recently, as a caregiver, I had purchased a monthly membership. I didn’t mind paying, assuming I’d get more for it. However, despite purchasing it through their app, having monthly withdrawals taken from my accounts, and emailed receipts, I didn’t get any of the services I paid for. When I called them and asked if they needed the receipts, they told me they did not want them and refused to provide me with an email address to send them the receipts. The rep on the phone actually hung up with me when I refused to end the call as I felt the issue wasn’t resolved. They obliged attempted to do mahjong after I complained on Twitter. Insimply asked to have the remaining of this month’s payment credited to me, which would mean I only got 1/2 a month I paid for, they refused to work or talk to me about it.
  • Too expense and they extort the money from you.

    I saw that the post was free so decided to try it. It asked for a picture of my family and then rejected it but didn’t say ey. Just said to look at their guidelines which was hyperlinked in the email. When I clicked the link it just took me to the app. No guidelines. After some time of searching I found it but it wasn’t any help. I couldn’t figure out what rule it didn’t like. Even without a picture we got a response. I emailed the applicant about a time to interview. However when I got the second notice of an applicant it wouldn’t even let me see her profile without paying $40 and blocked me from sending any other email. So even though the post is free you can’t do anything after you post. Not wanting them to think I was ignoring them I paid the money but I will never use the service again and certainly don’t recommend it. There are other ways to find reliable help.

    The app is really glitchy. Each update seems to include more. When clicking Message in a caregivers profile (after searching for caregivers) and typing, it only shows the first few lines of type then starts to type below the visible space but without scrolling. The Add Job button also disappears. When in my own profile it shows the Job as updated and live but caregivers say it’s not available. In Favorites, the swipe to delete malfunctions, getting stuck and not deleting, then deleting the wrong individuals. Also, people are added to Favorites that I never selected, but that appeared in a previous search. The individuals I did choose don’t all appear. Those are just some of the issues we encounter every time we use it. Additionally, we have a paid account through my husband’s company and seem to have fewer people see our ad than when we paid with our personal account.

    I really needed this site because I have a household of varying schedules. This site is not good for booking last minute childcare. You need at least 72 hours to find a suitable sitter and you really can’t book for less than $15/hr. Many times I post a job and multiple sitters apply and I find one I like and “book” them and attempt to schedule an interview and they never confirm soooo you ended up scrambling for another sitter. You do have many sitters who apply for the job with less than desirable ratings, or none at all which makes it difficult to vet the personality of a sitter. Because of this I always try to schedule an interview but almost nobody has updated availability! Also, it’s $200 to use the site and they charge fees on top of every job that you pay through the site. So finding care for an 8 hour work day is $120 plus approx another $20 in fees!

    So far so good! No disappointment, I’ve found nothing but good/quality sitters here! Still using it as needs arise. I’ve rated this app before but it asked again so I will, I haven’t had any problems! It does get annoying not being able to just share a phone number and having to work around it but I understand it’s for safety reasons. Sometimes I have to go to the full site to see some things but I expect that on an app vs full site. So no complaints. I’ve found great sitters and a few people to help clean, awesome job! Haven’t tried the backup care part yet but I have met a few people thru the app on my own to create my own backup care list, so to speak.

    I had an account for over a year and paid for a full year back in January. I have used it to hire care for mine and my wife’s three children. We found some wonderful people from it. Now all of a sudden in June I receive an email that states they removed my account. I called customer service and spoke with a script reading person, whom did not speak English well (my primary language). The customer service rep stated that they couldn’t say why they canceled the account due to their privacy policy. The service rep then informed me that I would not be getting a correct refund. I paid for a full year which is a discounted rate, but since they decided to cancel me randomly before my year was up, I got charged the full month to month rate of 38. So my refund for a half of a year was only 35. Do not use them for this reason. Find a local family friend and get care like it used to be. I have never felt so scammed in my life.
