    The housekeepers who apply for the job are not consistent in keeping plans and appointments they cancel on the days they say they will come. You should have a better system that allows people who are honest and are on the app that wants to really do the work they are applying for so its wouldn’t so hard to find a good match.
  • Useful but Frustrating

    Options seem to appear only when the app seems to believe you need them leaving the ability to do things like mark that you are hiring someone unavailable or well-buried other times. Many things are left highly ambiguous. I don’t like that people are encouraged to post a price range even if they are expecting a specific number (posting $15-25; you later learn they charge $23 for 1 child and more for more! Or just flatly $25/hr). I don’t like that you cannot see the price ranges on the summary of job applicants (unless other details are really short, then it sometimes shows; I care more about cost than what town they live in); you have to go through multiple screens for each applicant. Also when you post for a one time job, apparently that is ambiguous because I often get applicants for a one time job who then are surprised at the day and time and are not actually available that day. But it is one of the few such services available.
  • Doesn’t work if you don’t pay the expensive upgrade

  • Great for finding a summer nanny

    I’ve noticed that many profiles on Care.com are looking for summer nanny only jobs, which is fine, but the app doesn’t let you sort by full-time vs part-time or full year vs summer so it’s been challenging to find full time profiles who match our criteria. It also doesn’t let you hide those who aren’t a fit so I think it could be more user friendly with a few tweaks. I’ve shared this feedback with their support team.
  • I'd be better off just looking online

    Every single applicant we have had has not had anything we are looking for even though it is very clearly stated. Also for the region we live $10-15/hour is not even reasonable for one child. (All applicants have agreed) It would be nice to be paired with people who actually want to watch our child to fit our needs, I thought that was what this site was for. Instead I'm wasting money monthly for 'interested applicants' who do not fit our needs.

    Great app, but I didn’t give a five star there’s a glitch. The app close sometimes unexpectedly.

    Paid $20 for my membership, no jobs. Same old jobs every day. I applied for more than 20 jobs, not one reply. Waste of money waste of time
  • what’s the point of this?

    I open the app and it skips over logging in it creating account. I put in that i’m a errand/ odd jobs provider then it send me to my code which i’ve done repeatedly now. i’ve been confirmed for care chat and that’s it. It won’t let me make an account or apply for anything. That screen never even comes up. The app just keeps attempting to take me through the same process repeatedly.

    I downloaded this to find somebody to socialize with my bird for a week while I’m gone. I got a message from somebody who seemed like she would be a good fit, but I tried to load more of her message and it told me I need to pay FOURTY DOLLARS just to see her message and message her back!! I am so frustrated because there is no way I am paying a $40 monthly fee to find somebody to help me for 5 days. Do not even download this app. I do not know who they think they are to charge $40 for a MESSAGING SYSTEM. Take your business elsewhere.
  • Care.com is NOT upfront about their services

    I’ve been a care.com member the past couple of years to get a few babysitting jobs here and there and it’s been fine. However, recently they started charging money for a subscription. You can still have the “basic” plan but your profile doesn’t show up in searches, you can’t have other services on your profile and it’s overall a waste of time. For being a company that fronts “caring” about the community, they sure do a horrible job at it. I tried to add housekeeping to my profile and AFTER filling out the entire page, they ask for $45 and a background check. It’s ridiculous.
