Message Center Adaptations 4/5
The message center is amazing! I’d make one change, though. You know how on Care.com you can see if the individual has read or not read the message and how long ago they’ve read it? I’d love that technology here so I know who’s seen my messages and not replied—doesn’t necessarily mean anything necessarily, but it’s really helpful if there’s no reply after awhile because it means I shouldn’t keep looking at that posting. It also lets me know when someone wrote to me so I can get back to them ASAP and know when they’re more available during the day. Hope to see this update soon! Thank you!
Remember the good ole days when there was ONE care.com app and it actually worked...? It’s been awhile
Caretaker app creates safety 5/5
I have found several little old’ ladies to care for and it’s been a tool that makes myself and my ladies feel safe.
You have to pay to get a job??? 1/5
By Jules512 :)
I’ve been using this app for months and applied to easily 100 jobs. I was so lost as to why I wouldn’t even get a response to say they weren’t interested. I’ve gotten about 3 responses. I found out that unless you pay for a premium membership or the care seeker has a premium membership than the care seeker can not reply to you. And it blocks you from putting contact info in your bio. So unless you are hoping happen upon someone paying to use the app or you are willing to pay $30 a month for no guarantee or a job then I’d suggest you don’t use this app.
Care.com has matched me up! 4/5
I love Care.com. The reason for 4 stars is that I could not get to a customer care agent when my account was not right.
This website and app is HORRIBLE 1/5
I was so close of finding a job as a nanny. I applied for a job and I had a mom messaged me and we were going back and forth, everything was great and a week later she messaged me and asking me if I was still interested I messaged her back (or I thought I did) and I said yes I wanted to meet her and her little 11 month (probably now 12 months old) but suddenly she stoped responding to me. The message said delivered but she did not read it. This website and app is crap I need to find a job and no one is responding to me now. I had almost two jobs lined up but both fell though. Don't bother using this website or app your wasting your money and time. Find another website. I wish I could give this 0 stars the parents should be forced to pay not the caregivers. Care.com is completely wast of time and has really bad customer care.
Just a question I’m 12 and I would like to start babysitting but am I allowed to? (My Mom would be present)
The best 5/5
I have tried 4 different websites but care.com is the best. You won’t find another like care.com.
I should stop recommending this app.. 1/5
When I started back in 2015, it was awesome! No pushing to upgrade or pay for anything and I found AMAZING family’s that I still work for now.
BUT, I’ve been trying to apply for pet sitting jobs for some extra income & I now realized that because I am not a premium member, NO one I have sent messages to this week have received anything.... care.com are you trying to lose everyone??? Thanks for the heads up since I’ve been waiting all week to hear back from jobs 🙄 I want to love this app and I keep telling my friends how great it WAS for me, but I guess that’s a thing of the past.
If I’m looking for extra money... why would I want to PAY to find a job??
Indeed, Sittercity, and Craigslist here I come...
Great app 5/5
Easy to navigate and apply for the jobs. You get alerts to see when you have messages.
Great place to find a job 5/5
So easy, and get great responses. I’ve had a lot of good luck finding great jobs!
Best site to find higher quality jobs 5/5
I have been using care.con since 2016 and couldn’t love it more. The site is so well organized, there's some much protection to avoid fraud, has higher quality of clients. I love this site.
Awesome 😎 5/5
Love care.com! Came back on in January and middle of February I had several job offers to choose from. Now I’m employed full time, being paid what I asked for, and perfect hours to fit my kids schedule! Thank you care.com🙏🏾🙋🏾♀️
Got two messages 5/5
By Compassionate Caregiver
Since I was a member, I got two messages only. How would I get more messages then? Want to work with a client directly not an agency please. Thanks a lot for the offer.
Thank you care .com 5/5
Wonderful for Child Care Givers!! 5/5
I have had nothing but success with this app. All the families have been wonderful and I can attribute that to care.com. Thanks so much!
Great app!!! 5/5
Very easy to use, with step by step to do things.
Work opportunities, fast!! 5/5
Excellent way to reach people quickly and get to caring for children quickly
I have met quite a few people through care.com. I enjoy what I do and they make it easier to do it.
Love this app and its service 5/5
By Mags #2
Love this app and its service
Very disappointed 1/5
I tried caregiver for the first time only to be completely disappointed. Caregiver or care.com only cares about the money, they don’t care if you actually find a job. I believe it’s unfair having to PAY to find a JOB, it’s absolutely ridiculous.
Great Services 5/5
Professional and Great Services
Hit & Miss 3/5
Transitioning into private contracting is difficult and scary, because I didn’t know when or where my next paycheck was coming from. I must have initially applied to 50+ positions and I ended up having to deal with a boat load of flakes that first communicate with me then ghost me. Or, all the people saying and solidifying interviews, only to cancel last minute: after I’ve cleared my schedule mind you. I have been able to get a few good clients and I’m grateful for sure. But with all the amateurs out there under bidding going rates, it’s difficult to find good, professional positions. Also, I’ve found that I must have an employment contract, because otherwise I will get ripped off! Like I have. Watch out for the scammers on care.com... but do your homework. There are good families out there to work for, if you’re diligent and serious about working for yourself.
Certified Nursing Assistant/ Med Tech 5/5
By Robin D Fruitland,md
It’s been a great tool for work
Too many scams 1/5
Most of the profiles and Job positions are fake.
Great app 5/5
Wonderful, convenient app
Extra Money for Mom Bosses 5/5
As an entrepreneur, the extra money comes in handy for the rainy seasons. I have been apart of the care team for years, and it’s always good to have a back up plan.
I’ve been applying to jobs on care but the won’t let me respond unless I pay at least $25. I don’t have extra money to spend I mean that’s the point of applying for job so if any parents think you are getting ignored by caregivers, you are not care doesn’t care about anything except money!!!!!
I think it can be difficult to navigate the site. I would greatly appreciate being able to speak with someone but I can’t seem to make that happen. I upgraded to premium and it stated I would have a free Motor Vehicle Check but I cannot make that happen
Easy, safe, and multiple options 5/5
I love that the nanny now gets the option to purchase a background check as well as a DMV check. If I were a parent, that would be my number 1 criteria in finding a nanny. It’s great to write one response to multiple nanny positions and continue using it with one tap. Care.com has made excellent changes that benefit both caregiver and nanny seeker.
This is NOT worth it 1/5
I tryed using this website to get extra cash. But to be able to actually get your application out there you have to sign up for a Premium account, which guess what,costs money. And even then I’ve heard people still not getting replies. It’s nothing but a scam
One of the best tutoring websites out there, 5/5
By Simi O
This is my go to website whenever I need to secure a tutoring job.
Excellent Site for Nanny Jobs! 5/5
I have been on care.com for ten years and have made excellent connections with families. I have had amazing jobs and look forward to meeting many more great families!
Expectations of my Care.com membership 3/5
Having used your company for quite a long time, I have mixed feelings about the changes.
I am having difficulty with some of the technical challenges.
Also, there was no fee when I began using Care.com, but I suspect that happens.
As for the security aspect, I find it continuously apparent that scammers are using your services & this worries me.
Would I be able to speak, rather than email with your tech Dept re: working out the kinks I am encountering with various issues, pls?
Caregiver/ Housekeeping 5/5
By Doe W
I absolutely recommend Care.com I have been hired by 4 families and would recommend using them to either find employment or hire someone It makes it easier for both ends to find the perfect fit for the family
DO NOT GIVE THIS BUSINESS YOUR CREDIT CARD INFO. I REPEAT DO NOT GIVE THEM YOU’RE INFO.
Nanny market in one single step 5/5
I really love this app it makes me found jobs really quickly and the most important reliable people not scam!
Constant contact 5/5
I like care because it provides the parent a with a sense of security. It allows them to know who they’re talking to and if they want to do a background check to get even more information. I like the chat option where you can talk to the parents before hand and get a word in on what to expect before they hire you.
Good app 3/5
It hard to find job I been looking for two years not luck yet
Good site 3/5
Good site but kind of pricey to join.
I love care.com! 5/5
I’ve found so many amazing families to work for through this site. The app is easy to use and convenient, and I trust it for safety and reliability!
Care.com is the Best! 5/5
I’ve been working with care.com for 9 years and have always been employed doing the work that I absolutely love...caring for newborns, infants, toddlers along with a special needs child full time since she was 3 months old to the present part time. Parents have sung praises in finding me as a dedicated, skilled and trustworthy Nanny for their precious little ones. I have referred many parents and other caregivers to this website, ensuring them that it is a safe and trusted place to go to find caregivers and a variety of jobs alike.
Don’t do it- they only want money 1/5
They only want money. You can’t do anything unless you pay the premium and the actual app itself doesn’t work very well. I live in a small town, so there isn’t very much work. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to pay for the membership because it’s not worth it if I cannot get students (I’m a tutor). Unless you pay the monthly, you can connect with people, but they cannot message you back (or the app doesn’t let you see what they responded) until you pay the premium. So sad, but it’s true... they only want money.. it’s not actually to help people. At the least, maybe they could give everyone a month free or something so we can see if it’s even worth it. I wish I could give it a 0 star.
Used to be a good app. 1/5
I used to enjoy this app, back when we didn’t have to pay SO much money just to apply for a job. Why would I pay money to APPLY for a job that I might not even get.
Also, I think that if nannies have to do background checks then familias should have to do background checks as well.
Another thing is, I think payment should be fair, and no lower than $12 an hour. Taking care of a child is a lot of responsibility and should be taken seriously.
Care.com needs to have a waiting period for users to end their account so scams can be reported.
Awesome website for Pet sitters 5/5
I have been using care.com for 6 months now and love it. It allows me to find potential clients and contact them regarding my services.
