First time and...
I bought a yrs Subscription.
Good layout and functional
By funky jedi
I've been using the app for a couple weeks and it has worked well. I'm curious about these poor reviews. It did prompt me to pay for a job application but only one that was outside of my profile abilities. For my childcare and tutoring jobs, it allows me to apply. For Pets, I'd have to pay I think, bc I don't have it listed as my qualifications. Messaging could be more intuitive. Good overall!
App doesn't work
I've been trying to log in to this app but it keeps kicking off. I deleted it and reinstalled it to continue to have the same issue. Even the website doesn't work on a mobile phone. ::shaking my head:: This company needs a whole new server because both the app and the webpage is horribly wrong.
I apply and I can't even get a job because I have to pay to see the messages. Like if I'm looking for a job what makes you think I have money to pay to see a message. Come on seriously. It's making me find a job way harder. I've been searching over months now and being a mother of two it's not working. Thanks a lot Care!
We used this app last year and successfully found date night child care when we needed it, so I installed it again only to find out that it now cost $59 per months to send and receive messages from potential caregivers. No thanks, uninstalled!
Messaging is awful even w update
Somehow they managed to make the messaging system even worse. It's really awful and yet that is the most important aspect of the service: communicating a potential employees!! Get it together
I love the way the app is organized in a way that it is easy to use. I have been able to find many new families to babysit for!
The app lets me log in and then immediately closes out after going to the main page where it shows messages. I downloaded the app on my iPhone 5s and my iPhone 7. Both did the same thing and just continued to close out. It didn't matter if I reset the app, or reinstalled it, the same thing happened repeatedly over and over, so though I love care.com, I have to give their app an 1 star rating. The app hasn't worked for me once.
I use this app every time I need childcare. We're a military family so we're constantly moving and it's just nice that I have a couple sitters at my fingertips when we're far from family.
Love this app.
I haven't been on this app for long but have had a few jobs through here and I love it!
Too many fees
There are so many fees to just hire someone for a service.
The new update makes me not want to use this site. You have to click 'pass' or 'apply' on every job posting! So frustrating! I clicked pass on the same jobs every day! Please go back to the old way when all the jobs were a list and you could click on the ones you liked! This is not tinder!
