    Pros

    MBF has strong culture and the staff truly care about the work they do and the families & candidates they work with. There is a high standard of excellence here in providing services to families, and finding the right match between families and candidates is extremely rewarding work. Giving back to the community is also extremely important to the owners, both with financial support and community involvement.

    Cons

    MBF is a small company, so internal career growth opportunity is somewhat limited; however, management does a great job of supporting the staff in learning new skills, pursuing their personal and professional goals, and encouraging growth within the opportunities available.

    It is a very fast-paced environment in the office and risk of "burnout" exists.

    Nanny Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MBF (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Background check and paper work must be done and approved with at least 4 positive references before a face to face interview. The interviewer was really nice and relaxed. It was more of a conversation of where I got my previous experience and about MBF than an interview.
