  • Horrible service

    I signed up for the service with the intent to cancel The premium service once I got the help I needed. Care.com will not allow you to cancel nor will it allow you to downgrade. There are no options to do this. There is a window that will take you there but it does not actually downgrade- computer or cell phone and I have been trying for one month. It was awful trying to find the customer service number to speak with someone about canceling the service. Not a user friendly site & what a scam to keep charging people who can’t cancel!

    The app itself is horrific. I was stuck forever (months) with it demanding I write a bio (for my up and running account). I finally copy pasted my current bio, then it demanded I make a VIDEO to put on my page. And the skip button was a dead link! So I’m stuck there! Can’t get to my account!

    I have to agree with all of the negative ratings! Care went downhill quickly. I had it for years. I started my first nanny job from it back in 2010 and got a few more after that, but in the last couple years it’s not been going well. You have to pay just to reply to a message or to unlock stuff. It used to be free at least on my end LOOKING for a job. Why would I pay to find a job.. honestly lucky enough it’s all about word of mouth now, so I’m working, but I liked being able to have more clients and now I can’t get any new ones. Maybe I’ll try sitter city or something like that.

    You have to pay to let people respond to you. Total rip off.

    I am out of town and needed a last minute sitter for a few hours today. I got a couple of responses... BUT WAIT! I have to pay to reply to those responses and I’m not even sure if it’ll work out! Ridiculous. Will not be using care EVER!!! And will not recommend them to anyone.
  • Isn’t worth the time, effort, and money.

    I have had a care.com profile for years and maybe found one child to take care of part time. This app and website are not user friendly and apparently do not really “connect” caregivers to care seekers unless you are willing to shell out the money. And even then you still may not be able to find anyone. I have applied for job after job after job and rarely get any reply back. I doubt when I apply the people looking for care actually receive my message/application. They don’t pass along messages unless you pay even though parts of the service may be “free”. It is very difficult to get peoples contact information when they block out “phone numbers” and “emails”. Don’t waste your time word of mouth and references from people are the best way to go not paying for this service that doesn’t really connect you to caregivers and care seekers in the first place.

    Have had nothing but problems with this Company and good luck closing your account. You are better off using Craig’s list. You will find good and bad everywhere but this Company wants you to believe they have the high standards “they don’t” Craig’s list is free and you can call most people directly. Ask for a few references you’ll be good. Going to someone’s house tells u a lot more about their, in home childcare than what ever BS these guys want u to believe.

    I loved this app. I used it on occasion to find new nanny jobs. Then, out of no where, they terminated my account. I haven’t done anything wrong. I thought maybe because I’m not on there very much? But they won’t tell me why. It’s very frustrating and I have no idea what I’m going to do for future jobs
