    Care.com

    Disappointed

    Overall Experience:

    I am a single woman - 60 years old, with endless free time, so, I completed the application to babysit part-time.

    I received a message that reads:

    "Oh hi, Shelly,

    You're a caregiver, but you're not in the CareForce yet. Once you are, you'll secure your spot in the search where families can find you."

    From there I am given the option to "Upgrade" my search by PAYING to be seen!

    However, I find it rather convenient that the Facial Photos of myself have been "Denied" several times. Please explain how/why several clear photos of my face continue to be Denied?

    I can - the company Suggests that I "Join/Upgrade" to "better" my chances of getting hired. In other words - PAY them!

    I have 3 grown children (all professionals) and 7 grandchildren in which I have been an active part of their lives. In addition to some of the professional jobs I have held in my life, I have worked as a substitute teacher, school volunteer. I have taught English, Arts & Craft classes throughout the US and Asia. Yet, I cannot get a single photograph of myself approved with Care.com?

    Care.com may profess to want the best for their customers, but I believe their real interest is in how much money they can collect!

    With my qualifications, life experiences, freedom and true enjoyment of spending time teaching children, I'm confident any parent would be very happy to have me spend time with their infant/child or children.

    I'm very disappointed and feel I will always encounter a "glitch" with Care.com unless I submit to "paying."

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
