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

    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. 😡

    Do not download, not worth payment

    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!

    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.

    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.

    I am surprised at at lack of quality. I have never seen so many 19year old kids that feel like they deserve $20-$25 an hour to watch my 9 yr old. It’s a joke, most of them don’t even show up for interviews.
  • Overwhelmed

    I didn’t realize when I set up my account that my request was going live. I thought the service was a one sided track, meaning I could seek but that I wasn’t out there to be solicited. I’m not sure how to change settings, and wish that care.com would have been more clear on what setting up a profile an account meant. I didn’t want to be bombarded, I just wanted a resource to find a dog sitter.
  • Caregivers do not respond

    I have had terrible luck with any caregivers responding to my messages. Even those who applied to my job directly then do not respond. So far not worth the money.
  • Issue with messaging applicants

    By MonDel556
    I’m trying to reply to an applicant for a nanny position and the keyboard on my phone won’t go down so I can hit the send button. Very frustrating! Tried turning phone sideways and I guess the app isn’t set up to be viewed sideways. I really don’t want to sign in from my computer. It defeats the purpose of downloading the app. I’ve already downloaded the update. Please fix ASAP!
  • Waste of money

    I have paid for three months of service with care.com. After posting a job, I recieved several responses interested in the position. I messaged some for an interview, only two thirds of the applicants actually showed up for our scheduled interview. Other interested sitters did not even respond back when I messaged them. The one person that did show up for an interview later stated they were looking for full-time position, when my add clearly stated part-time position and I even included the hours. A supe frustrating experience with care.com and a acomplete waste of my money, as I found care outside of using the app. Do not waste your money!
