  • Horrible App

    By GiddyPotato
    I’m a babysitter and I’ve been trying to contact several families for a job but I found out that you have to pay to get in contact with them. Getting this app will cause you to lose more than you earn. I hate Care and if I don’t get any answers for my questions, I’ll be deleting the app soon.
  • Soooooo many issues

    I feel that for as much as we spend on a premium account, as well as all the dumb extras we pay for when posting a listing, this app would be significantly farther along than where it was when we started using it (one year ago). And not just the app, but also the website. The whole service is horrifically overpriced for the amount of senseless issues you have to battle whilst paying for it. Still all the dumb glitches, striving to be as un-user-friendly as possible, and incorporating useless “security” measures (not allowing for phone numbers to be shared for interviews, etc.). The “Carechat” is a time waster that attempts to solve the self-inflicted problem of not sharing numbers, by creating a whole new system that doesn’t work properly, which is novel way of killing two birds with one stone.
  • App is great

    When communicating with applicants is super easy to use and gives you the opportunity to respond quickly.

    Honestly though why would I pay money to get looked at when the whole point is to try and find a job to get money. If you are going to charge it at least make it a reasonable price.
  • This App is awful

    At first I liked the app. But then I realized they are mischievous. I started an account trying to find a babysitter for my son. I searched for one and all the babysitters that come up were far and paid premium to the app. But guess what???!! There is a babysitter in my building who did not pay the premium and she never came up in my search and I never came up in her search either. Now I am working with that babysitter and extremely happy with her! What this app is doing is really bad! Trying to show that whoever pays more becomes qualified and ready to work!!!! Disgraceful and disgusting what you guys are doing!!! You are very dishonest! I was going to buy a premium and search for maids and other services but not anymore after discovering what they have been doing.

  • Cancel job?

    By BD_2
    This app used to be great. Then I had a ton of problems paying my caregiver. And now I cannot cancel the job, THAT ENDED 2 weeks ago! I even called. I still get asked everyday if I want to pay her.... there doesn’t seem to be a way to terminate the job in the app or online. And apparently nobody there knows how to do it since I was on hold for over 10 minutes while they tried to figure it out.
  • Annoyed

    I tried to create a care giver profile to look for house keeping jobs. On my computer/desktop the website would only let me create a profile to hire someone which is the opposite of what I want. Downloaded the app on my phone and went to log in thru the app and it said I had to download the app first. I already did. So confusing. Hate this app.
  • Save your time, save your money, skip care.com all together

    The app is not actually connected to the web site so if you get prompted to download the app (like I did) when you go to the website on your phone DO NOT download it. It won’t connect instead will charge you another $39.99. Also, the customer service is awful. I called to cancel after being charged the next month (though I only signed up for one AND cancelled my subscription l) and they said it had been cancelled and refunded. 3 months later I see I’m still being charged $39.99... again I call to cancel, this time my call was answered by a call center. The woman (conveniently ) states “there are no notes in the system saying you cancelled, however I can refund you 1 month.” Well, that’s a good start but what about the remaining $79.98? I’m not wasting my money on Care.com’s mistake. Of course I get the usual blah blah blah from here, “that’s all I can provide for you ma’am” and “no I can’t transfer you to anyone else but they will call you” and “we will reach out to you with a response by e-mail n the next 7-10 business days” etc etc... Waste of time. Worst part is we never even found care because though I filled out a very detailed schedule, the amount I could pay and the hours I needed, everyone and their mom who doesn’t fit the above stated needs reached out with none (literally none) matching up with what we were looking for. Save your time and save your money.
