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

    Pros

    Great co-workers and great experience.

    Cons

    Overall, I enjoy working with this company. However, I see myself leaving soon because I barely make enough to live on the salary provided. Also, no benefits, like health insurance, are provided. A HR representative is needed. You become your own fighting advocate.

    Advice to Management

    More HR experience is needed for owners.

    Pros

    This is a really good job for college students. You can pick up on-call cases when you want so that it works with your class schedule. The agency finds families for you to work with. There are also long-term position with families available sometimes. It isn't very stressful job. You can get a really good reference from the parents if you work for the family on a long term basis. Children are really fun to work with!

    Cons

    You are working for an agency, so the parents pay the agency and the agency gives yo a cut of what they get. This goes on even if you've worked with a family for years and the agency isn't really needed anymore, but you can't work with families outside agency that you have met through the agency. This could mean that the agency is making min. wage for every hour you work.

    Advice to Management

    Be polite to the families that need your help and pay you for it.

    I have been working at College Nannies and Tutors part-time

    Pros

    I can say that this job has really taught me a lot and has taught me even more about children. It's fun, and it's like we're a family! Noth only do we build stronger families but we build stronger nannies in the process. The company really works with your schedule and the families are usually great people! I love College Nannies + Tutors!

    Cons

    Not really any cons. Only thing I can think is to maybe have more Nanny functions so we can meet other nannies more often

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Professional and through. They fit me with an incredibly nice family with twins. They were very sad to see me leave the state, but now I have my own twins! Ha, imagine that!

    Cons

    I cant think of many cons. Maybe more group nanny functions?

    Pros

    Upbeat, comfortable office setting and work spaces with friendly management staff. The staff seems to care about their team and try to keep an upbeat attitude.

    Cons

    No possibility for advancement. Punitive, disconnected and unprofessional owner that doesn't understand HR employment practices. Depending on the position, expect to work 45+ hours a week and be available 24/7. Compensation is low compared to other businesses in the industry. The owner has created many "rules" that are unrealistic and do not follow actual HR practices. The work atmosphere would become very negative because of owner's expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your management staff to take the lead and hire an HR manager to create a more appropriate work environment.

    I worked at College Nannies and Tutors part-time

    Pros

    Great place to work. The agency was very flexible with me regarding my schedule while I was in school. They looked out for me and took any concerns seriously. If there was a problem they listened. They also made sure that the families treated me with respect and not a second class citizen. Most families were great. It opened my eyes to different cultures and lifestyles that I will be able to use in my career going forward. Management is very considerate and understanding of circumstances that arise but if when the is taken advantage of they definitely will take disciplinary action.

    Cons

    I would have like to have been paid more but understand that because many jobs were contracted from an outside agency they were limited but did increase whenever possible.

    Advice to Management

    Other than increases in wages since the area does deem a higher hourly rate there is not much I advise I can give since they are very kind, caring and appreciative of their employees from what I have seen.

    Pros

    You told them when you could to work. Management is caring and understanding. They provide lots of information and supplies so you can do your job. If you're new to a city its a good way to explore the different areas.

    Cons

    The hours is all over the place. You may work a day and a half one day one week. Then work 13 out the the next 14 days. Sometimes with no notice for gigs which is the nature of an on-call job. There is no schedule or routine for day to day life. No regular coworkers so the job can get lonely. This is a good job if you're looking for extra income. Not for a single based income.

    Advice to Management

    Let people know that On call is a possible 40hrs but not a guaranteed 40. Have more ways for the nannies to meet each other.

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

    Pros

    The company is all about working with your schedule. As a placement nanny your schedule is pretty cut and dry and it's easy to get into a routine. Unlike food service or retail you don't have coworkers to switch shifts with, but they have an on call nanny service just in case of an emergency. On call is also pretty cool to do because it's something different every day.

    Cons

    Challenges, probably just communication with families. Parents are always changing their minds about things and sometimes they fail to communicate with you. But the good thing is that CNT understands that and has your back usually. The dress code is a little dated but again not every job is totally perfect.
