    This app helped me find a last min, reliable sitter when I was desperately in need of help!! I’ll recommend this to everyone I know that is in a bind.
  • A good source but some flakes in the bunch

    I just wish that care.com would do their own background before allowing ppl on the site to offer childcare services. I’ve had unpleasant experiences with a few people on here. None the less I have found caregivers also not so bad. None ever keep the consistency they began with initially but for the time being this place is good for finding help in temporary situations.
  • Love care.com

    While I love care.com, I find it a bit difficult to use on my phone. The website is great and super easy and fast to navigate. The app works well, only doesn't seem to flow as seamlessly as the online website. Also, I wish there would be more elaboration of what a housekeeper versus a house cleaner is. I'm finding most applicants are confused.

    The option to write and send you messages don’t let you hit send. Also, have had quite a few no shows.
  • Terrible, use UrbanSitter

    Care.com is terrible, I can’t believe they are as big as they are. Check all their terrible reviews no way they could have 4.6 stars. I downloaded the app and PAID for it. Well they deleted my account after 1 day but could not tell me why, just stated you violated blah blah blah but we can’t tell you what it is you violated. Oh and don’t forget my wife tried to then make an account and they wouldn’t allow it, this is after her having her own account for 3 years. Use urban sitter!! It’s waaaaay easier and I found a great nanny. It’s comical because Care.com would of made thousands off of my family, we need a nanny for the next 18 years. Beware!!
  • Issues sending messages

    I love this app but I’m having problems sending messages. My keyboard pops up when I start typing but it covers up the message box and the reply button. I cannot communicate with anyone and cannot move my keyboard to send a message. Please help!
  • Website is fine, app is glitchy and hard to use

    Care.com website is fine on computer. App has issues. Messaging is a problem because the last line gets hidden by keyboard. Attaching a job is not doable when messaging a potential because I just see a black bar where my posted open jobs should be listed. Sometimes I can see favorites list under my job listing and sometimes I can’t... unsure how to actually get to that screen. Overall not super user friendly or consistent app. Would stick with desktop version to use unfortunately.
  • So incredibly helpful!

    I have no idea why this app isn’t more robust. Please make the following changes: - allow families to filter out caregivers by hours available, as many times families only need full time help or part time help, while caregivers are also only looking for full time or part time work. Very time consuming to wade thru everyone when only a fraction meet your needs for needing FT or PT help. - allow families to search for more than one option for a range of years of experience. You only allow families to pick one option. Again, very frustrating.
