    I was trying to find a house cleaner as advertised on TV. When I added the app to my phone and tried to open it it asked me what kind of services I provided it did not give me the option to put to select services I wanted terrible app.

  • Issues

    I have a lot of issues with sending and receiving messages on this app. I often get a message saying that people’s profiles no longer exist. Another error message is hat I’m not a member so I can’t send messages, so then I go to pay for membership and it recognizes I’m a member and goes to recover my membership and then just times out. It all gets very frustrating.
  • Was great until they started charging

    Charge the sitters and nanny’s. I’m not paying $50 to look for a baby sitter. My date night just cost me 100$ more.

    With the most recent update I’m officially unable to login to my profile from my phone. This is absolutely absurd and inconvenient.
  • Annoying

    This app is so annoying to use. It’s trying to do so much that it doesn’t do anything well. It’s heart is in the right place but it’s clunky. For example: I’ve accidentally closed my job posting twice because I clicked the wrong button and the only way out closed the job. The list of applicants is not in any particular order. It refreshes and reorders 5-7 times each time you access the list. It takes so long to find the info I need that I avoid using it until absolutely necessary.
  • THIS IS A SCAM WEBSITE

    I have been on this website for 2 weeks and all I have received is scam messages. I have reached out to people and even paid 45 dollars for the premium plan which is a waste of money I can’t get back. It will not let me delete my card from the website and every time I go to email for help the email will not send. This is a terrible website and I am not sure who is giving it so many stars. I never write emails but I have become so sick of only getting scams like the one I have posted below. It would be the same message but different names 2-3 times a day. Don’t even try this because you will not get your money back! “ Hello, My name is Eva' i'm currently in the process of moving to your area, i read your profile on Care.com and i would like to have you as my pet sitter to take care of my cookie, starting from 5th of May. I'm willing to pay 25/hour, 9 am-1 pm, Mondays-Thursdays "or" 9 am-1 pm Saturdays and Sundays, you can send me an email confirming your interest, email me with your resume to ( evanelson 146 at yahoo dot com )for more details. Eva”

    Really bummed with how terrible the app is within 10 min of downloading it. Cannot message nannies back from app. All of my attempts to send come back with “user no longer active.” However I’m able to respond from my laptop. Messages that are read in the app will not register as read. Also, when you click on pictures, it is a blank screen. Super inconvenient!

  • Used for 12 years — no longer

    I joined care.com 12 years ago. Over the years, there have been things I’ve hated about the service, but I’ve dealt with them. No more. This is totally a scam now. As a caregiver, I can’t apply for jobs without paying a monthly fee. ($25 if I want one month, less if I’m willing to pay for 3 or 6 months — why would I use a job service that isn’t going to get me a job for 3 or 6 months?!) Paying money didn’t do me any good. Every single job I applied for had 50+ people I was up against and I heard back from no one (though care.com was kind enough to inform me that all of my emails have been read). I don’t know if it’s because the parents aren’t interested or if they’re also being subjected to insane prices just to respond to applicants. All I know is I’ve been a nanny for 14 years. It’s never taken me more than 3 applications to get a response back and I’m valuable enough that I usually end up being able to choose from multiple jobs at the end of the interview process. But now I’m not even getting an email back? I know it’s not the quality of my email. Using other services, I’ve gotten replies from every family I’ve reached out to. But I haven’t even gotten a response to the email that was sent to me, let alone a single one from any of the dozens of jobs I applied to on care.com. This site has gone down hill fast and I have gone from cautioning people about using it to I will never, ever, suggest anyone use it anymore.
