I have tried to hire nannies twice in the last 4 years through Care.com but finally ended up going with a REAL Nanny agency and getting amazing people.

I am mad at myself for even giving Care. com a second chance and wasting my money.
When I reached out to the potential Nannies on Care.com., over half of them were no longer looking for jobs and their posting were from years ago.

The other half either never responded and the rest were horrible qualified.
People can write whatever they want regarding their qualifications. It was ridiculous to see an 18 year posting that she had 10 years of childcare experience.

The few that I did attempt to hire, changed their tune about their availability. I felt like it was bait and switch so that they might get hired. Just to clarify my side. I needed a 8-5 nanny that would make 16.00 hour and 4 weeks off paid vacation , no taxes taken out.
The other crazy aspect of Care.com is that there are the SAME PEOPLE supposedly looking for jobs this year that were on the site 4 years ago when I was looking for my first Nanny and there were the same people .
Care.com never requires people to take there names down once they have been hired or if they are no longer looking for a job. This makes the look like they have a lot of choices for you when really only 1/4 of those people are available or want to be hired.
( My first nanny left because she got married and then move. )
