    I have been working at MBF part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You pick your own schedule. The staff is extremely friendly.

    Cons

    They send a lot of jobs through text, email, and on their app. It can seem overwhelming at times to have so many different forms of communication.

    I worked at MBF part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You are able to make your own schedule and have some flexibility. The families are also put through a background check as well so you aren't put in risky situations. It also gives you the option of being a permanent nanny or just part-time.

    Cons

    They can be disorganized when it comes to sending out conformations of your jobs. I had issues with getting paid on time which put me in a bind a few times.

    I have been working at MBF part-time

    Pros

    Working with MBF is by far the best and easiest way to make a living as a nanny/baby sitter. I have been a nanny with them for my last two years of college and it was a great way to make some extra money. Don't ever use another baby-sitting website ever again.
    Get to create your own schedule selecting jobs you can work.
    Pay is competitive ($12 for one child plus $1 hourly for each additional child)
    NO NEGOTIATING PAY WITH PARENTS
    MBF agency is always there to make sure the family pays you
    Makes finding babysitting work much easier
    Easy to switch from part-time nanny to full-time work

    Cons

    There is very little work during certain times of the year (the summer)
    Never really have interaction with other co-workers or management
    The hiring process is very extensive, with a quiz and tutorials to complete.


  5. "Great agency, both for internal office staff and candidates seeking placement!"

    I have been working at MBF full-time (More than 8 years)

    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.

    I have been working at MBF full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you chose to do temp work you can pick your own schedule. I do full time work. The interview wasn't really an interview it was just for them to process my paperwork and chat with me about my preferences. I got matched with a family within a week. The real interview is when the family interviews you. The nice thing is this is where the rich families go to get babysitters and I think they have to pay you a minimum of $15/hr so the pay is way better than picking up random babysitting jobs

    Cons

    None, any experiences you have would depend on the family you're matched with. The con I had with my specific family is they don't take out money for taxes so I have to put aside that money myself

    Pros

    Get to pick my own jobs and hours. Works great with school schedule. Pays more than min wage. They are very professional and the staff is really sweet to work with.

    Cons

    Sometimes the jobs are last min and traffic can be bad but its ok.

    Pros

    Wonderful company. Everyone I worked with truly enjoyed engaging with children and providing stellar childcare.

    Cons

    I can't think of any! I loved getting to be a part of such a great company. I guess this definitely isn't the job for anyone that is not truly dedicated to their position as a nanny because MBF is very strict about being on your phone and they do ask for a review of your services from the families you nanny for.

    Advice to Management

    N/a you ladies were all so great!
