Extremely Frustrated

rdrgs32

I used to love this app, a year and a half ago I found a nanny for my kids on here and everything went perfect, now that she is leaving to travel I have been in a time crunch to find a new sitter. After posting a job and getting a couple responses who could only be backup sitters the app started blocking all incoming messages and not letting me respond. Telling me I NOW had to pay. Well, $55 for one month is ridiculous when looking for one nanny for the long run. And getting down to the wire with only 2 weeks before I was without a sitter I finally forked out the $55, messaged about 20 people (whose profile SAID they were available the days and times I needed) and only got 3 responses from girls who said they weren’t available those days. And THEN the two girls who said they were available and interested, once I responded to their email asking when they would like to meet, I have never heard a response back after a week. Maybe it’s their side of the system blocking messages like mine had been or them being unprofessional, I have no clue. But this app was a complete waste of time and money. And now with one day before I need a new sitter or I’m out of work, I have to look some place else and hope for a miracle.

Please, more testing!

I have been working between this app and two browsers on my computer to try and get anything done. The whole experience has been MADDENING. On Chrome, there is no way to reply to messages or schedule someone. On this app, filling out the profile is impossible. I have uploaded a pic over 10 times now and it keeps not showing. I tried to fill of the bio section and the letters stacked in a *vertical column*! THEN I got an “Alert” that my bio wasn’t approved (presumably because my bio was wonky?). From the app, I clicked on the link to fix the problem. A browser window was opened (?!) where I was directed back to the homepage of the app where I had to then navigate to the page I wanted.

I downloaded some kind of messaging tool when I was desperate to communicate and couldn’t in Chrome. I have no idea how to access it. Where did it go?

In the messages section, there is no way to archive, sort, filter, or move messages. Maybe I’m looking for a dog walker AND a house cleaner. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to put those in different folders? What about all the wonderful nannies who aren’t available now, but will be later? I don’t want to delete their messages...

Horrible treatment toward nannies and caregivers

Goforchristinam

Care has always has a disconnect representing the nannies, encouraging families to pay nannies below minimum wage, and does nothing to inform the parents of laws.

Yes, it’s basically a matching service site, but for how much parents pay, they do not provide much. The site is over priced for parents. You might as well pay the extra fee and use a nanny agency as you still have to do a lot of work for what you are paying to merely use the site.

On the nanny end, they are double dipping in getting nannies to pay for memberships despite the fact that they would not have anything to provide parents without them.

Recently, as a caregiver, I had purchased a monthly membership. I didn’t mind paying, assuming I’d get more for it. However, despite purchasing it through their app, having monthly withdrawals taken from my accounts, and emailed receipts, I didn’t get any of the services I paid for. When I called them and asked if they needed the receipts, they told me they did not want them and refused to provide me with an email address to send them the receipts.

The rep on the phone actually hung up with me when I refused to end the call as I felt the issue wasn’t resolved.

They obliged attempted to do mahjong after I complained on Twitter. Insimply asked to have the remaining of this month’s payment credited to me, which would mean I only got 1/2 a month I paid for, they refused to work or talk to me about it.
