Reviews

Terrible, use UrbanSitter

1
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

4
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

3
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.

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.

Can’t use chat due to keyboard covering “send” button

1
I can’t use the iOS app to send messages on either my iPad or my iPhone because the button to send messages is hidden under the keyboard. 😡

Rip off

Do not download, not worth payment

Disappointed

1
This app, as well as the site, is ridiculous. Why would you advertise as free but in order to even read messages you charge $29? Child care is already expensive and now I can’t even use this app or site because I don’t have an extra $29 a month just to find a sitter. This is definitely not recommended for low income parents who are barely making it as it is. Better off looking on Craigslist or using any of these other nanny/babysitter apps that are actually free to use.

Nothing but a money scam!

1
I will not pay for a premium account! Why do I have to pay for a premium account so families can respond to me? (And yes it says “upgrade to premium so Xperson can respond to you!”). I do not have any money that is why I am looking for a job. I’m not paying money to LOOK for jobs I may or may not get.

Babysitter/Nanny care giver

Please explain why anyone can post an ad that they are looking for a child caregiver job but none of them are available or actually interested in working? Why are they even listed for being available? Nobody is ever available! Twice now, 2015 & 2019 we’ve posted caregivers job ads and not one person was available. It’s been a waste of time and money, unfortunately! We’ve set up interviews by phone and have been no call no show failed to respond by the interviewees. Doesn’t anyone want a decent & rewarding job anymore? Animal caregivers are more dependable than this.
