    I found a good caregiver, but had to unsubscribe on 3 separate occasions before they finally stopped charging me. Ridiculous
  • Great Application

    Care.com is great! The ability to pick and choose client postings is nice. The client calendar allows me to pick a client that fit my schedule.
  • Cumbersome process

    Was excited when I downloaded it, but turned out to be a huge disappointment. My wife and I need to find a babysitter after my in-laws left. But after paying for membership and background check, I spent one month and still didn’t accomplish anything. Never got the background check to work. The guidelines for job posting and profile are not helpful. For example, I posted a picture of my baby with a Saints jersey and got rejected. Checked the guideline and didn’t find anything. Called the customer service and they said the name on the jersey, which is “BREES” is not matching my baby’s name. Luckily, I only tried for one month. Definitely do not recommend this AT ALL.
  • The app won’t let me enter my address

    It keeps telling me to try again after some time and won’t let me get past the second sign in screen and I waited over six months and still have the same problem don’t know they bother advertising in my area if they don’t service it what a waste of money. Trying to get a caregiver through this app is a waste of time
  • Inconsistent work, shady scams for too many house cleaners

    First hire never showed. Second hire - complete scam - took the cash and ran. Third hire - was supposed to be two people for two days. Close to a complete scam - did about 4 hours of work but charged for 28 hours. Fourth hire - finally someone who actually cleans like she promised. Joan Gets five stars for excellent house cleaning work at a reasonable rate. Care.com only gets 1 star because I have hired 4 people before finding one who doesn’t lie or steal. Thank God for Joan - I was desperate for a good house keeper and I think I finally found one.
  • 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.
  • Make it free

    It’s ridiculous that nannies such as myself, Should have to pay to contact families. It’s hard enough to find a nanny job to help support my family, Having to pay the amount a month to find a job is absurd. Care should make it free to nannies and the families should only have to pay for it.
  • The app is ok, the service isn’t

    I signed up for care.com to help find a pet sitter and eventually a babysitter. The app works fine and I have no complaints but the service is terrible. I get inundated with unqualified applicants and they don’t bother to read the actual job posting. Everyone gives you a generic response. The app constantly asks me if I have hired anyone but they haven’t actually helped me find anyone.
  • You have to pay for it

    By Jfkizzle1122
    You now apparently have to pay in order for people to be able to respond to you. So it’s really not free anymore. It’s not like we’re on here BECAUSE we have money to pay for an app. So disappointed. Edit: Developers responded saying you can reply to messages for free but you cannot.
