TERRIBLE APP FOR SITTERS
I recently completed a sit for a family this past Saturday. I still have not received payment for this specific sit. The app says it is supposed to take 2-3 business days and it has been about a week since I sat this child. When contacting customer service through their messaging on the app, they 1. Took more than 3 days to respond, and 2. Tried to tell me the payment was processed although I spoke to my bank and they confirmed there wasn’t even a payment on the way.
The customer service is terrible, when you call the line there is no person to speak with. It either tells you as parent to leave a message, which doesn’t work, or as a sitter to return to the app and message them, which I’ve stated previously they do not periodically check or respond in a decent amount of time.
I am completely disappointed with this app because I spent my time babysitting for a family and have not been compensated for my time. I can’t contact the family for the money because they have paid the app. They probably believe I have received payment already. I STRONGLY DO NOT recommend this app for sitters or families because there is no idea where the money is going
Craigslist is a better option for childcare. Horrendous. Run!
I never write reviews. Ever. I feel compelled to warn other people with this one though. Craigslist is a safer option for childcare for both parents and providers!There are so many unethical and insulting business practices in this so called app. You don’t have any say in your rate, I.e. how much you charge! For someone with a Masters degree, it’s a ridiculous policy. There are more grammar errors in this app than a 2nd graders book report. They forbid you from exchanging information (phone #s, email) for your “own safety”.....yet the sitter is inside their house watching their child!! What the kid chokes? “Oh...the app told me not to take your cell #. Sorry....”says sitter to parent. I hope this app which was clearly developed by an uneducated teeny bopper gets shut down before a child gets seriously injured. Stick to SitterCity!
FYI- many,of these reviews use the same verbiage as the developer. Fake 5 star reviews for your own app? Low.
As a sitter who just started it difficult to deal with especially when you payment is not sent or transferred the day its supposed to. Its also difficult to get in contact with authorized personal via thru the app you have to contact them in person and sometimes they take a while to respond. I’m not saying they are 24/7 but the time of wait is ridiculous and other sites I have used it Transfer within a day latest was two but it has been more than 3 days and if I were to count the weekend that’s 5 days!! So for anyone deciding to be a sitter make sure you have the patience to receive your payment late. Also you don’t get compensated for your miles so don’t go to a sit more than 10 miles
