  • Horrible App is an understatement!!

    July 16, 3018 Update The app has been vastly improved but still very buggy. I’ve changed it from 1 star to 3 star. October 14, 3017 Review Honestly this is a horrible app. There are so many glitches I rather not use it at all. Where do I even begin. 1. The app is a battery hog I could see my battery draining every time I use it. 2. Some days the texting feature works great other times are such a lag that other person doesn’t see the message for hours. 3. The profile picture will load sometimes and other times you would have to back out of the screen and go back into the profile to see the picture. Sometimes you have to do this a couple times before you actually see a profile picture. 4. The idea of hiding your telephone number when texting is horrible. They should allow us to enable or disable that feature. It should be up to the user if they want to keep their telephone hidden or shown. Not up to the app. 5. Sometimes apple just freeze trying to load messages or to view peoples profile 6. Other times when you’re messaging multiple providers the app would show that you have an incoming message with a red dot. Sometimes it does not tell you who specifically sent a message and even after going through all the messages the red dot still does not disappear. 7. To make matters worse I get spam from many companies that provide nanny or childcare service syncing my business. There are plenty more bugs but I also don’t have that kind of time to list everything. Overall this is a very frustrating app. I’m sure I have lost several potential nanny for my kids because it either did not work correctly for me or the nanny.

    It’s ridiculous that nannies such as myself, Should have to pay to contact families. It’s hard enough to find a nanny job to help support my family, Having to pay the amount a month to find a job is absurd. Care should make it free to nannies and the families should only have to pay for it.

    Not only does this cost a fortune to even try out the applicants available are slim to none! They should really at least let you try it out for free for a week so you know what you’re getting into before you hand over your hard earned money!! App claims to offer many other services besides babysitting, but it would be easier ( and free) to just look through the local classified ads and randomly pick a “baby sitter” ( that’s all you’re getting at care.com regardless) I’m also frustrated and angry that I spent so much money to just get to take a peek if there was anyone actually available to work for...me but no there isn’t. App does allow you to leave messages with applicants to see if they’d be interested in working for you, but again....that is something you can do yourself through the classifieds. Care.com is a cyst pool of people trapped trying to get/receive help and Care.com profiting for not! I feel like, as a consumer who is in need of service, I was completely taken advantage of! Come on, they charge a finders fee every single time you pay someone??? And that’s just one of the ways they love to charge you money! I hate to think the cut they take from the providers on their site!? Care.com is really all about them making money and nothing about providing a service...or should I say “Care”ing. Again...classifieds...for free!

  • Messaging does not work

    This app does not work properly. Messages do not always go through and phone numbers get restricted. Please don’t limit our communication as it makes it hard to get connected with the right caretakers. We can make our risk assessments.
  • Great concept

    I think the app is reasonably user friendly. Overall it’s organized well. I’m not crazy about the ad hoc manner in which the site hides phone numbers. In my opinion we’re all adults (or should be. Teens should not be permitted to advertise), and if we want to share phone numbers that should be our choice. I have had technical difficulties on more than one occasion where I couldn’t connect with someone because the tap phone feature was malfunctioning. I also think there should be a separate part of the site for those seeking long-term child care, as opposed to a casual babysitter. But perhaps my biggest gripe is not with the site itself from a technical perspective, but with its efficacy. I have at least 10 people who ignore my outreach efforts (after they responded to my add), or who don’t show up for a phone or in-person interview for every one person who responds and follows through. As a result, the process of finding a nanny or sitter is extremely time intensive, and the opposite of convenient, which surely the developers of the app intended. Of course you can’t blame care.com for that. But I do think that is an important component to share with anyone contemplating signing up for a membership.

    No one responds and no one wants to work but they are sure to tell you what their rates are. Then when messaging it says This account is closed. I’ve found that senior home health is a horrible thing to have to go through. When you’re already stressed because of your loved ones health you have to deal with this! My advice is to just stick with interviewing companies face to face but be aware this behavior exists there too. Good luck!

    This app is the worst, website horrible, horrible company. Unfortunately all the caregivers go to care.com so you’re kind of stuck with them. User interface is hard to use. App crashes all the time. They finally allow you to send a phone number to a potential caregiver - used to be you had to use their unworkable internal phone system. If you want to talk to a human at customer support - you can’t.
