    I worked at College Nannies and Tutors part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are many pros about working here- You can create your very own, flexible schedule. They work with you on what YOU can do and how many hours/week you can manage. You get hands-on practical experience with children and families, which is always fun! The staff is always very nice, pleasant, friendly, and understanding.

    Cons

    When you create your scheduler online for your availability, make sure to stick with it! If you made personal plans while the scheduler says you are available and you get staffed for a job, you have to quit those plans.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work-life balance is great. This is more of a FUN job, so it never really felt like work when I was going to nanny. The business is facilitated in a very professional, easygoing manner. The staff is also very supportive of any concerns that may arise while working.

    Pros

    Numerous opportunities which work around my class schedule. It is always easy and convenient to get nannying jobs when I am home on break or weekends.

    Cons

    Competitive when replying to on-call requests due to the large amount of nannies in this service.

    Pros

    The only pro is that is pays. But not even a lot.

    Cons

    Everything. No benefit. No paid time off. No development. No real training. No constructive criticism just criticism all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The very positive reviews are written by owners and managers. Never worked with such an inconsiderate person in my life.

    Pros

    I don't have any that are positive.

    Cons

    They will fire you over the smallest mistakes and not give you the feedback that families give them so you can fix it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more lenient.

    Pros

    Flexibility with scheduling (Some Cons go w/ it)
    Manager in the main office staff was nice, friendly and understanding. Worked with me to make sure it was a great fit.
    The families are very thankful and wonderful. They seem to take interest in you.

    Cons

    You had to provide one month of availability at a time, if something came up or was different from that calendar it seemed like you had to prove that you really couldn't work.
    The person who staffed you for cases lives out of state and in another time-zone.
    Didn't pay for mileage or offer reinburstment- had to drive to different places daily sometimes over 30 miles from main office.
    No benefits. No Sick time.
    They tell you that there is a mildly ill policy - I had a child with a fever and diarrhea and was told that still counts as mildly ill.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I understand that the position is on-call, but it should be staffed with someone local who understands the area. It's confusing to have a hiring manager (for HR issues and local issues) and a Staffing manager (who gives me work) - should be all in the same. I understand you can staff 24/7 for cases but I shouldn't have to be in consent fear that I don't respond to an email or text from a manager - I get calls/emails/text as late as 1030pm (sometimes later) and as earlier as 6am. There is no work-life balance, your are expected to respond to all emails and texts even when you say you can't work. I know this is a franchise so it may not be the same everywhere.

    I think that the Main Company should play more of a role in the franchises - a friend in another state had this same job and wasn't living in fear about not taking work.

    Good pay and hours; Rude management

    Pros

    Hourly pay is pretty good and you can get a decent amount of hours as long as you're available. Good job if you're in school. The system is easy to use to enter your hours and always paid on time. Getting to meet different families and kids is cool.

    Cons

    Management is very rude and talks to you like you're a little kid or stupid. Required meetings on the weekends. Sometimes you have to drive really far for jobs and don't get paid for gas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should learn how to speak to all people with respect or you will lose a lot of good nannies.

    I have been working at College Nannies and Tutors part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    You work more for the family and less for the company. However, the company does offer good support, ie sending in a replacement when you are unable to go to work. As a student, your schedule will often mirror that of the child's, so that is easy to schedule classes. It's also nice to pick up a couple on call shifts for extra cash.

    Cons

    Being on call can be a little unpredictable and mess up your plans. The rate that the family pays is a much higher rate than you receive.
