    I really need a reliable source to find sitters, since we moved across the country away from any family or friends that could watch our son. We have met friends that could watch him, but then who would we go out with? It’s a catch 22! Help us, sittercity! (:

  2. Tiffany says:

    Oh wow! I need a reliable sitter! Our last sitter we used over 2 years ago and it was just a bad situation and it soured me on hiring another…so for about 2 years my hubby and I have not gone out :(

    Oh I need a sitter so bad. I’m in a town where I don’t know anybody, I have worked from home since before my son was born (now 2) but I’m finding he needs to get out with people more now than before. He is very good about letting me work but I would like to find someone to take him out for a couple hours a few times a week.

    I used your form to share with two friends and signed up for both things.

    I am going back to work in January and need to find someone soon!

    I may be an awesome auntie au pair… but I’d like to go out WITH my little sis, but without my niece and nephew occasionally.

    I found sittercity through this site and used them to try to find help with my home and two small children while I recover from ankle surgery.

    I am in a leg cast for two months and can’t walk, so I advertised very specifically for help with laundry, dishes, being my hands and feet for small things around the house, and looking after my 18 month old and my 3 year old. No heavy cleaning, just basic survival while I recover.

    Sittercity provided 5 leads. 3 never replied to my emails. One replied to my initial email but not my followup. The fifth accepted the job.

    Despite my having been very clear about dishes/laundry/helping around the house, the sitter I hired informed me that she didn’t do any laundry. She complained about emptying my clean dishwasher and bringing in the mail, telling me that she was “used to just playing with the kids’. Did she not read the ad?

    So, I paid her for the day and let her go.

    When I complained to Sittercity about the total waste of the $95 I paid them, they refused to refund my money and gave me this reply by email: “We apologize for the inconvenience but Sittercity is not an agency, therefore we can not guarantee you will find a caregiver to meet your needs. Sittercity is a online networking site for parents and caregivers.”

    So, please be advised that Sittercity does not stand behind their service. You may not get a reply, and/or the caregiver does reply, they may not have read your ad very carefully.

    I have since found a wonderful helper by calling my church nursery. 100% free and way more helpful. I am disappointed that Sittercity has so little concern for the quality of service they provide or the poor quality of their pool of workers.

    My name is Amanda i am looking for a family to allow me to bring my 4 monthold along with me he is a great baby. Its really hard to find a family that has the same wants as you. I’m starting to think the internet is not the best place to post my ad’s. I am a great mother as well as care giver and i don’t want to be looked at any different because i am posting online. does anybody have advice on what to do to finding a good family for my wants.

    @Kim – Sorry your experience was not a good one. I have had a wonderful experience with the service and have since paid for it twice with my own money. What Sittercity says is true. They are not an agency and do not have a “pool” of employees. The service is designed to help you match yourself with available caretakers in your area. They are no more responsible for the quality of the sitter than a supermarket would be if you posted or answered an ad on their bulletin board. Yes, if you have an organization in your area and are able to find someone there for free–that is certainly a more cost-effective way to go! I didn’t have any luck at local churches or colleges, so I turned to Sittercity and found a great sitter.

    @Amanda – Not sure where you are posting your ads or what you are asking… Every parent has their own level of comfort as to where they will look for childcare and whether or not they allow the caregiver to bring their own child along while babysitting. I would try a babysitter forum (they have one on Sittercity and it is free for caregivers to register) and ask other babysitters about their thoughts.
