I signed up for Care.com hoping I would find someone who could use my services. I only have 1 client at a time and come highly recommended with great references. I applied for several jobs the first few days. Nobody even contacted me. But, I checked for new ads each morning and applied to all that I felt I could help with. Nothing. I googled why no one was responding lol! I ran across other people who were having the same problem as me, but still no answer, so I just kept applying. Yesterday, I decided to send an inquiry to the company itself. You have to pay the monthly fee to enable prospective "employers" to be able to send you a message! Unless, they pay the monthly fee, then they can reply. All this time (months), I thought it was me but couldn't understand it. All of my replies to ads were going nowhere I guess?
I mistakenly thought this was a sincere company wanting to help people. Bottom line, if it seems to good to be true, it usually is. I somehow thought they made money other ways I guess. I almost was to the point that I was going to pay the fee and see what happened. I sure will not. I do not condone any company that does business this way. It's almost like a "lost leader" old time scam.
Bait & switch, if you will.
If you intend on using their services, pay the money, because you will get no where if you do not.
