Hopeful and waiting
I signed up today and I’ve already gotten 2 people asking for a meeting!! Very fast results. Only short of one star because I haven’t exactly started. Communication is great but if I actually do get the job then I’d gladly change it to a 5 star and confirm the app works!
I will say that uploading my photo was a bit of a problem. From my phone the file was too big and I had to use my schools computer to upload it. This app is better than care now as it didn’t require background checks to still look for us poor college students who can’t afford $60 for it. Thanks guys! Saved my pockets this summer!
Just wanted to come back and say yes the app works! I got my first job already within a week!

DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME!
If I could give no Stars I would! This website/application is horrible do not waste your time! Just for reference I have a very good profile on this site and I have years of sitting experience with references to back it up! I even paid for the background check! No Matter how many jobs you apply to or what you do. Good luck to you if you receive a response. Then on top of that when you do get a message it’s from a scammer that just minutes after they send you an email saying the user was removed from the site. I have been on this site for months almost reaching a year! And to this day I have never received a response from any of the jobs I apply to. And I was apply regularly. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY OR YOUR TIME!!! You will be regretting it later! Trust me! And Sittercity you need to do better or completely get rid of your website if it’s not serving its purpose.

Thanks for your review and for sharing your feedback. We understand your frustration if you haven't received a response from a family you applied to. It is up to the families on Sittercity to respond back to the applicants they are interested in and we encourage all members to be responsive. Please feel free to reach out to our Customer Success team if you have any questions or concerns and we'd be happy to help!
I’ve gotten jobs but worst website and app.
On the website when you get a new message it scrambles in with your old messages there’s no way of knowing what’s new and what’s old so you have to read through every single message to figure it out. I get a lot of scammers and spam messages throughout the week. When you use the app and someone sends you a message you’re not able to click on their profile from the app so you have to go onto the website to click on and view their profile then go back to the app and reply if that’s the route you want to go. I don’t use the app since I don’t feel like having to click through my email to go online to the website. It’s extremely difficult to navigate and frustrating for yourself and the parents.

Thank you for your feedback, we are sorry to hear you had a poor experience. We will definitely send your feedback through the appropriate channel.
The trust & safety of our members is something we take very seriously.
When scammers are identified appropriate steps are taken to remove their account from our site. Keep in mind, Sittercity is a public site. Some scammers do find a way through registration, but we scan our site daily for this type of activity. Although some of them stay on the site for a short period of time, our Trust and Safety team is eventually able to identify these accounts and remove them.
If you are continuing to see similar jobs posted by the same member, this is because they have come back in and created a new account using a different email address in order to re-post that job. Please reach out to our Customer Success team directly to report any suspicious accounts.
