Not great for my area. 1/5
Although over 50 people applied to my cleaning posting, I wasn't able to hire even one. Several didn't show up, more canceled at the last minute and others wanted far too much money, sometimes triple what I posted for the ad. When I look back through the applicants I found that nearly half stated on their profiles that they were already working for me, and they asked for reviews! I guess this app works as well as the applicants in your area.
Love it! 5/5
This has been great!
I've never had a bad experience in two years.
No Landscape support on iPad 3/5
The iPhone version of this app is okay, but the iPad version needs to support landscape view. I'm physically disabled, and can't use my iPad in portrait mode.
The app is good. I like being able to sync is to get text notifications when I get a new message 👍🏻
Very user friendly!! 5/5
Very easy to navigate and neatly organized.
Works great! 5/5
The app works really great and makes it easy for me to browse for caregivers without having to go to the full website.
Love app 5/5
When I open app it closes
Wonderful app! 4/5
It is incredibly simple to use and versatile, which is all anyone could ask for in an app.
Great app 5/5
Always have loved using this app!
Scam Alert 1/5
I've used this app to find multiple tutoring and nannying jobs, but suddenly I need to pay monthly? I feel scammed and overall disgusted by care.com's sudden greed.
I'm a big fan of the service and application 5/5
Great service and easy to use app. Thanks for the improvements over the last few updates
Very helpful 5/5

Great service to find sitters. My wife and I recently used Care again to find an AWESOME sitter who lived in our neighborhood to watch our daughter last weekend.
I love the app
Love it! Really works!
What the heck. 1/5
When I was a babysitter on Care, it was great. Now that I'm a mother and looking for someone to help out - it's terrible! I can't reply or even read anyone's applications or messages without spending nearly $70! Seventy dollars to respond and MAYBE find a sitter?! Yeah right! Two words: Rip. Off.
Keeps telling me to update app when I open it 2/5
By Aly Ars
Won't allow me to use app once opened
TERRIBLE update! 1/5
The app wasn't great to begin with. The newest update made it 10 times worse. What happened to being able to scroll through a list of positions? And what's up with charging members to apply? Another company becoming money hungry. 🙄
Ok high turnover 3/5
You have to look thru and meet like 50+ applicants to find 1 person that fits your needs. A lot of ppl do not respond. App on iPhone doesn't refresh when you click profile easily. I have to tap it like 10 times. An ok solution. It has helped me in some situations of needing nanny or housekeeper.
Great families 5/5
By Lorelei Siemasz
I love the families I have worked for through care.com
Like the app except the credits... 4/5
I used it in the summer (2016) and I'm using it again. However I now have to buy credits to get a job. I understand it someways to keep the spammers always but I don't want to spend money only to probably get rejected or something. Not the app but Care.com. The prices are a little ridiculous. Each job cost about 4 credits at most but it cost:
$10-10 credits =2 jobs
$20 - 20 credits 5 jobs
If they reject you, you get 1 credit. So unless I'm reading it wrong it's seems like a bit of rip off. How can I put myself out there if I can apply? I don't have all the money in the world to buy stinking credits... a little annoyed can you tell... 😡
Update: so I looked at the difference between the web based one (computer) and app. I noticed that I looked at the same jobs as the app. There's more detail when you go on the computer then the app. I tried to edit my mailing and it said that my city, state, zip code must match. I know my own mailing address strangely enough I know weird... then I tried the online payment app and it was telling me that my card was wrong when it wasn't...
I noticed that you have to pay for pet card but not child service... I'm not sure if pet care people are more picky then child care or if it's something that Care.com is trying out. They will lose people if they do this.

They seem great but I haven't found or gotten any interviews or jobs through them YET.
Great job opportunities 5/5
This is a great app that lets you know about job opportunities near you and I love it!
Tinder for childcare. 1/5
Do you really want to get your nanny or babysitter from an app that works like a dating site?!
Do something about this Care.com.
Parents: Please, take the time to give us the correct information about the job. I'm sorry the website makes it so confusing.
Nannies: Good luck dealing with this monstrosity of an app.
Great app and program overall. 5/5
Love this app, easy to talk to employers and apply to jobs.
Great App! 5/5
I like the app because it lists the jobs and it's easy to apply to them. It even has a feature to view your bookings.
It's a good page! 5/5
I like it.
Use the website instead 1/5
It's been awhile since I used the app because I haven't been looking for jobs, but I was SHOCKED to find out you now have to pay to apply for jobs using the app. I realize this may be an effort to prevent spam, but definitely not worth the expense or the space the app takes up on my phone. I will certainly be deleting the app and just using the website from now on.
Love it! 5/5
Always a safe and creative way to get a nanny job!
Great app 4/5
Easy to use app to find jobs. Would be nice to sort jobs by town. Does still need a few tweaks like a much better calendar that you can adjust more than 2 weeks out and more specific time you are available, but other than that it is easy to use.
Pay for a job 2/5
I have been on this site for 4 years. I really liked it and thought it worked extremely well up until recently. I am not unable to search through all available jobs, and the new credit system is ridiculous! I didn't have to pay to apply to a job before but now I have to pay $1.00 to apply to a job. Yes that may be a small price but o think it's ridiculous after years of being able to apply to jobs for free. The refund you $0.25 of the person declines you but often times people don't respond so you won't get that $0.25 you deserve. I think the new updates to the system are bad decisions. If you didn't already have the app then I don't recommend getting it. Because I've been on the site for 4 years I've been able to build up a reputation and instead of having to look for jobs I have people asking me to work for them, but if I just stared on the site today with be an incredibly difficult and expensive uphill battle just to get a job.
Great sight!!! 5/5
Been on it for a couple months now and is working like a breeze!
Outstanding Service 5/5
This was my first time using the app and hiring a nanny. It was reassuring to have the ability to perform background checks and get driving records of each sitter. After I made my selection I was beyond satisfied. My son absolutely loves his nanny and I love that I have found someone I can trust to put my sons safety first.
Amazing Must-have App for Babysitters 5/5
I love Care.com and have been using it for a year now as a care giver. It allows me to connect to families and easily request reviews from employers even if they do not use Care.com. As a minor, I love that it allows teens to start babysitting and getting jobs at a young age unlike other sites. I have and would definitely recommend this site to my friends. It is easy to use and an amazing oppurtunity.
This app has so much potential but that's been overshadowed by the glitches. Notifications won't go away no matter how many times you click on them. It doesn't let you see the full care provider reviews if they are long. When you try to scroll down it doesn't let you go past a certain point. Among other issues. Please fix these problems.
Love it 5/5
Love this app works seamless for me
Super useful 4/5
Great app! Super helpful for finding jobs. The worst thing about it is that not all users know how to use it, and they don't look at the bios before messaging you, but that's not the app's fault. It's very convenient.
You have to pay to post your resume! Every time. 1/5
This app and website in general are absolute garbage. I'm a college student who's pursing a higher education as well as a CNA working to make ends meet. This website and app both require payments upon applying for jobs. Every single time. Are you kidding me!? Deleted this app and I highly suggest everyone else do the same. Please don't give this company your money, they don't care about the people providing care or the people who looking for the best options for their families.
By Vanessa Prokopich
Great app, very convenient! Easy to land jobs and get in contact with families! Worth the membership!
Great way to find jobs 5/5
I love the new app, very easy to use and a great way to find jobs!!
Love it 5/5
I really do love this app! So fast to apply, and very user friendly!
Easy to use 5/5
I love having the capability to answer my messages and to search for jobs on my phone. The app has never given me any issues and I can even update my availability
Great app 5/5
By Ligia Elena
So easy to used and great to find a job.
Love it!!! 4/5
I love this app. It is my first time using care.com. The only downfall to it is the payment. When I tried to pay my nanny for my daughter, it would not go through. I'm sure enough it is a glitch on the system and it needs to be fixed immediately!!
Money grab. 2/5
pay to apply, pay to be seen, pay to reach out to potential customers, pay for everything.
I don't like that every Job on the search is all new I get it's new for a week but not any longer and the jobs posted should disappear after they hire that nanny... bio can't write so much because it won't go all the way down and I don't like that I need to pay for background check and such 👎🏼
Great App 5/5
By Hoot's mommy
This app has helped me find 5 houses to clean AND a babysitter for my children! It's difficult to both find jobs and find a sitter....actually had to open another account but it's all good. Still love the app!
Great App! 5/5
Always works perfectly for me. If you're persistent enough, you are able to find whatever you are looking for. As with any line of work or search for workers!
Good app! 5/5
Good app! Easy to use on my phone, and found a great caregiver!
