Just awful...  lee0797  1 star

I must say that this app was once wonderful but now they’re charging you to message people or even receive messages? About a year ago I use this app and found so many potential jobs FOR FREE. I download it recently since I’m looking for extra cash and it wants me to pay to use the app. No warning or anything. I reached out to quite a few job openings only to found out after 2 hours of searching I cannot receive messages from the families. I need to pay to do so... that’s ridiculous. Everything on this app cost money. For that I might as well just use another website and save myself the money I’m trying NOT to spend. 👎🏼

threeheartboxes

Clutter  threeheartboxes  4 star

As a job applicant I find this app useful overall but wish there was way to mark or delete postings that I have already read. There seem to be a lot of out dated posts that take a lot of time to get through before you find the ones that are actually current or still open. Care.com emails about “new” listings are also cluttered with profiles that are outdated and don’t have open jobs.

Coley Canolis

Pet care  Coley Canolis  2 star

I love care.com. I just don’t like the fact that the jobs that seem like they’re available are not and it’s only when we apply for them it gives us a. Error message saying “this job is not accepting applications at this time.” I think those particular jobs should go in a separate folder so that the person seeking work doesn’t have to waste time applying .

Sillyfilly1

New update is awful.  Sillyfilly1  1 star

I used to love using Care.com but after the new update I have no intentions of using it again. Applications I had sent days before it forced me to update are unable to be opened by families because I didn't "go premium" it's ridiculous and unfair. If this update was going to happen, why couldn't you have just blocked my message from sending instead of letting me send it and not allowing a reply? I no longer recommend this app. The updates just keep getting worse and worse.

MathewThomas

Crap Application and process.  MathewThomas  1 star

Care.com recently started blocking messages with phone numbers. So you cannot contact the Caregiver directly to discuss the job or set up an interview. This causes a lot of problems because your calls don’t go through. It is also frustrating for the job seeker and you as the advertiser because you have to register to except calls which I made through Care.com. Please don’t join because you will be frustrated.

Go and play

Easy start  Go and play  5 star

The app made easy to start also because of the background check I think it will make it easier for me to get job since I am a man but a father.

Really code red

Could be better  Really code red  3 star

App routinely crashes, makes it difficult to repost old jobs, and sort through messages (options are to delete or not, no archive feature). I understand the need to protect phone numbers, but I should have the option to share my number if I want. Especially for the price involved.

Oh I Think They Like Me

Great app to hire a caregiver.  Oh I Think They Like Me  5 star

The app itself has many bugs to iron out but the service itself works fairly well. I live in a well populated metro so I have a huge pool of caregivers to pick from. I received over 20 inquiries to my job post...took some time to interview and figure out who was good since most profiles look the same. I consider the price I pay for subscription worth it for the pool of talent I can access. Better than Craigslist!!

Luxor42

Message feature is almost useless  Luxor42  2 star

Doesn’t integrate with email to allow send/receive outside of the app. Navigating to a particular part of the message is difficult. Has very strange special character requirements.

Jennifer T A

List of Jobs is Confusing  Jennifer T A  2 star

This app does not convey a noticeable difference in jobs that you have looked at, applied for, are new to you, etc. They ones on my personal feed all say new and have the LOOK. I am unable to delete/hide listings that are not for me. I end up getting confused if I’ve applied for a job or not because, when looking at the group of listings, it can get confusing.

care.stinks

Greedy  care.stinks  1 star

Care.com only cares about getting more money from you. 75% if the women listed are not available and if you do find someone Care.com censors your text messages to delete phone numbers because they want you to use their contact app. Very Dishonest. I hope someone takes care.com to court!

Unusable in current state  who is yao  1 star

Very unreliable app. Very unfriendly interface. Crashes unlike any other app I have. Even if it worked it would not be a great design or organization with sorting applicants, responding to messages, etc.

Love the app but wish the messages would also go to my email

Alli_0598

Bad app  Alli_0598  1 star

This app isn't safe, I have gotten scam multiple times, not only one time but three times, I have tried to reach to care.com but they never answer. I would like to get a refund for my subscription which it was $73 because I haven't gotten a job yet I have gotten scam. If care.com doesn't take action I will take action and filled a lawsuit against care.com because I have called them and sent them emails and they don't answer.

Not friendly  Viv (med student)  1 star

Not only that they charge for membership, they also limit the contact between the employer with the potential candidates. That's greedy and defeats the purpose.

Annoyed!  Bvvvvvv5444  1 star

It's annoying that care didn't used to make you pay and now you have to pay for everything or your application isn't sent! It's all about the money

Nerd squad 723

Why am I paying for this  Nerd squad 723  1 star

Paid for 3 months because couldn’t find the option for the “free trial” and established that sending messages to those who are interested in the job is difficult. Sometimes they can write back, can’t send information to get ahold of them elsewhere. Then I go to look at a background check and I would have to pay to see it. The person applying for the job has already paid to have the background check and I am paying as well! Still have not found care for my daughter. So disappointed.

Takes a long time for client reviews to show up.  geofan49  1 star

When a client posts a review, it can take many days before it shows up on your profile. Also, with CarePro status, takes many days after you qualify before it shows up. If you respond to a voice message with a phone call (not via a text message) you will be penalized -- and you can lose your carepro designation. You MUST always respond with a TEXT message (within the system) to anything that you have received. Your voice response to a voice call request does NOT count. This is a BUG in their system. When you respond to a voice LINK with a voice CALL it should qualify as a response, it should not require another extra text response. Lost my carepro status for a week because of this problem. One more new problem with iOS 11, it is very very very difficult to edit your text responses with him this system. It makes it almost impossible to write a text response because the EDITING capability is very very bad! Also, if you type a response, it sometimes gets flagged with erroneous characters, and it is impossible to edit and fix that problem. This is a very inconvenient system to use. This is what I'm giving the one star rating. Updated. 11/10/17.

My place to find care.  thektjo2  5 star

Ever since I’ve had children this is the only place I’ve found care for my children. We’ve live in 2 states and 3 different areas. And it has worked great every time. We have hired 4 great nannies. Only had to rehire because of us moving and the nanny moving. I always recommend care.com when people ask for babysitters.
