  • App Could be better

    By NewCambridgeMom
    Runs with a lag - messages don’t refresh instantly and runs with a lag. Hard to organize applications - it’s all message-based. Other than tagging candidates with Decline, Keep in the Running, or “Heart” there’s no real way to keep track of who you’ve talked, take notes on each candidate, or if that candidate had previously applied for another job posting. App crashes when I start deleting old messages. While not an app issue, I find that applicants RARELY read your post carefully before applying. I go through about 20 applications and exchange 1-2 messages with each candidate (that actually bothers to respond) to realize that the dates/times they are available DO NOT MATCH MY JOB DESCRIPTION.
  • Can’t view app in landscape mode

    Buggy app won’t rotate to landscape mode. Nanny images don’t load consistently. App harvests and cloaks your phone number in the name of increased “security”. Creepy.
  • AWFUL

    I can’t even get responses unless i pay. This is an app to help people find jobs, most of which don’t have the money to blow. A complete rip off
  • Horrible App

    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

    By Sophie Kitty's Mommy
    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.
  • Stupid.

    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.
