    Do the best to give all on-call nannies a chance to work a good amount of hours.

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

    Pros

    Make a great effort to match nannies with the best families according to the experience of the nanny and personality of families and children. Work almost immediately after being hired.

    Cons

    Leaves nannies with families without prior knowledge of parking rules. Nannies have the responsibility of finding out such information.

    I have been working at College Nannies and Tutors part-time (more than an 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.

    I have been working at College Nannies and Tutors full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I love working for College Nannies and Tutors! I currently work as an on-call nanny where my hours are flexible. They consider my needs and availability, and work around it. If you prefer something a bit more stationary, they also offer placement nanny care.

    I also get to work with some incredible families. Whatever age you feel comfortable with, the folks at College Nannies and Tutors will help you out to fit your skills and preferences. It's also wonderful experience for your resume.

    If you're working for a flexible job, great compensation, and a fun atmosphere, this company would work really for you!

    Cons

    At times you may receive last minute requests.

    This Franchise is managed by a woman who will pay top dollar for a 1500 sqft office space that is unnecessary

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

    Pros

    Free pens, and the opportunity to work with nice families who are duped into overpaying for the services the company offers.

    Cons

    Lack of training, poor human resources, rules and regs change almost daily, and in general the management is terrible. I work very hard for this company but they continuously change my hours, they have not paid a dime in bonuses or commissions that are in my contract, they never reimburse for gas/mileage as stated in my contract, and they spend tens of thousands per month to lease office space which is not even utilized. In other words, they spend so much on overhead they are barely able to pay their employees. Loyal employees have been let go via email because the management doesn't even have the guts to call or do it face to face

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop wasting money on unnecessary office space in a high rent area. Train your employees so they are able to use the erp system rather than complaining and scolding when employees are slow to learn without any formal instruction. Treat people with respect. Learn how to budget so you can actually abide by the rules of the contracts you have written. Pay your employees back for gas and expenses. In general, simply learn how to manage.

    Pros

    Everyone is friendly, understanding, and flexible. The families you work with are great! Everyone you encounter are sincerely interested in learning more about you, not only for the sake of your ability to perform the job.

    Cons

    I haven't worked here long enough to find any area that may need some improvements.

    I worked at College Nannies and Tutors part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I was an on-call nanny for the Danville, CA location when they first started and I loved it! Flexible with your schedule. Great families. Trustworthy company. The pay was great. They helped pay for gas.

    Cons

    I would get texts really early in the morning and late at night for jobs that needed to be filled for the next day. It's not a bad thing if you want more hours though!

    You were great!

    Pros

    Great experience for young professional. Client relationship management experience.

    Cons

    Very little training and support from management. Does not invest in employees or materials for nannies. Communication between management and employees was not constructive. Incentives were not enticing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Development and grow your talent. Investing in their career path would add value to the position. Set realistic gaols and offer reasonable incentives.

    Pros

    Never a shortage of work (always available on-call jobs).
    Lots of freedom and independence.

    Cons

    The few times I had to deal directly with the office, management was very catty and unprofessional.
    I was assured when I interviewed that training would be very intricate, but I felt unprepared.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please work on your communication. My particular Nanny Placement Manager was the sure reason I ended up needing to leave, for my own personal sanity.
