    Pros

    I began working for College Nannies + Tutors in November 2015, and I'm already experiencing one of the best times of my career. The management team is always efficient with scheduling, payroll, and keep employees informed and encouraged while working in the field. They show great concern about the families we serve and the nannies who care for them. CNT is one of the best organization I've ever worked with. Great flexibility. Keep up the good work!

    Cons

    Just wish there was a designated time for the employees to meet with management/administrative team to get more aqainted, in person.

    Advice to Management

    Have a "Meet & Greet" or something similar every so often, as you possibly can.

    I worked at College Nannies and Tutors part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    College nannies and tutors uses an app to keep track of all assignments that is very easy to use. You must update it with your availability regularly or your boss will text you all the time with assignments. Most families I saw were very nice.

    Cons

    Some assignments were very far away and they don't reimburse for gas required to get to the location. Some assignments were assigned for two days without meeting the family first. So you are committed for two days of care without knowing how that experience will be. Also the pay did not correspond to the number of children you were caring for. So I would be paid $12 an hour for 3 kids.

    Advice to Management

    You should change the pay to correspond with the number of children cared for, base rate for two children $12 and it should go up $3 for additional children. It's hard looking after 3 kids at the same time!

    Pros

    It's awesome to be able to pick up nannying jobs at your convenience. The families that are associated are always friendly and you are guaranteed payment.

    Cons

    Jobs can cancel last minute on you which can be hard to deal with. Sometimes jobs can be far away and the schedule can be so short that sometimes it's not worth it.

    Pros

    Easy to submit your hours and schedule and the app is very helpful. They prescreen families to make it easy and safer

    Cons

    I don't think there is any cons to the program the only thing I can think of is most nanny jobs are under the table and this isn't

    Advice to Management

    Your awesome

    Pros

    CNT offers a ton of opportunities to their employees so that the job is really suited to your wants and needs. I started out as a part-time Nanny, but after about a year I became a Campus Ambassador, which is essentially a recruiter for CNT that focuses on my college campus. CNT is very flexible and works off of your school/work schedule (if you have another job). You put all your available hours into a calendar and the company schedules you jobs with families. CNT is a great job to have long term while you're in school, and even after school. Lots of people continue to work for the company after graduation as CNT has so many opportunities to move up in the company.

    Cons

    It is necessary that you have a car so that you can drive to jobs, so that's something to consider if you don't have means to travel. Sometimes the jobs can be a ways away, but if they're over a certain number of miles you get a gas stipend.

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

    Pros

    Set your own hours Good quality working space/office A good mix of students who are eager to learn Nice people

    Cons

    Pay could be much better considering you could make double/triple/quadruple(some cases) the amount on your own. Each store is different but the nanny business is the driving force, so tutor scheduling can be hap-hazard, sloppy and stressful at times. While the owner/manager does want the students to succeed, every now and then you're reminded that what they really want is money.

    Advice to Management

    Trying to do everything on your own is tough. If you can get your margins together to pay the tutors more you could attract more tutors, cultivate a stronger community, and you might find your job getting easier and easier with tutors willing to invest more of themselves into the business. (i.e. grass roots recruitment, advertising, and a strong sense of responsibility to the business)

    Pros

    I love CNT because I get to meet lots of great kids and families, and its a great experience in working with kids in an educational capacity. I love working placement because I get to spend lots of time with the kids and become part of the family.

    Cons

    Management is sometimes tricky. The rules seem to be changing all the time and there is no handbook that gets handed out. They have am" training but it is essentially the same thing over and over again.

    Advice to Management

    I would come up with a shareable document with procedures for nannies to view on whatever system the so choose.
