Description of service

I have a 1 1/2 year old daughter who I needed to find a babysitter to work out of my home while my Husband and I both worked full time. We had everything at our house that they needed while we were gone. We basically just paid for them to get to and from our house everyday. We had diapers, clothes, food, and all the toys that our daughter would ever want to play with here at the house.


Review of Service

This month we have gone through 3 babysitters, it just seems that no one has any common curiousity anymore. Our first babysitter worked for us for 2 days, then over the weekend decided to call us on Sunday to scream at us for 10 minutes straight without letting us get a word in. Basically she said how she thought we were bad parents, we didn't tell her the word "no" enough, and that we didn't have any veggies in the house (Which was completely untrue). Then at the end she said, what do you have to say for yourself? My husband and I were speechless. Then she quit right then and there. The second babysitter worked for us for two weeks, was great with our daughter, and our daughter loved every minute being with her. The babysitter was having to drive from her house that was 20 minutes away from ours everyday. Then after lunch she would have to run back home to pick up her kids from school, drop them off at her house, then drive back to our house to drop our daughter here with me after I got off work. She knew very well before taking the job that she would have to do that everyday. She ended up writing us a letter over the weekend (I'm thinking on that friday night after she got home from our house.) Letting us know that she simply could no longer drive back and forth everyday. I tried calling her, and got nothing. So then we hired the third babysitter, who was in college, she ended up working for us one day, and then not showing up the next day. Simple as that. Needless to say, I hope that she doesn't try to get her job back. Tomorrow starts our new babysitter, hopefully this one works out.


Tips

When you are interviewing the person make sure that you get references from everyone that you have applying for the job, and make sure you contact them. Even if it takes more then one phone call to that reference. Also make sure that you don't tell them about your previous experiences with babysitters, that tends to give them ideas about different things. We've found out from our experiences that you need to also ask them to give you at least two weeks notice, although we didn't say it with our previous babysitters, we did with this one.
