    Pros

    Use to be good for finding legit clients.

    Cons

    Scam ads.poated constantly, not protecting privacy. Get emails from foreign countries by the scammers posting local ads. Not screening ads for jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Screen better of the.people posting ads. Get a frickin phone customer service in place and.have it be based in America.

    Pros

    I would say the company was always making sure you were safe.

    Cons

    I hated that you always had to pay for everything and also the company would go back 20 years on a back ground makes no sense to me

    Advice to Management

    Stop making your staff go back 20 years on a back ground check.

    I worked at Care.com (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A lot of listings
    Theoretically it is a nice way to find a job.

    Cons

    Every step requires money. Twenty here for this, 40 there for that. While I wouldn't say it's a complete scam, I'm sure people have gotten jobs off the site, it's set up to make money off you with no guarantee of a job. And you can't look at your messages without paying a fee.

    There are so many people on site looking for a job, it's easy to get overlooked.

    Advice to Management

    N/A
