    I have been working at SeekingSitters (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Most families are nice.

    Cons

    No benefits, low pay, unprofessional office employees. Families rarely tip, and no opportunities for promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the sitter pay. Ensure your employees are acting in a professional manner. Add some sort of promotion opportunities.

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

    Pros

    If you can't find anything else, well, at least it's a job?

    Cons

    The pay is so low. Considering they only hire people who have several years of experience caring for children, as well as CPR and 1st Aid certification, they should start out at $11-12, and even that is really low. There is an option for parents to add "gratuity" to your pay card, but they don't tip very well either. I'm sure they're spending enough paying for SeekingSitters to sit there and text or email nannies with job requests. I mean, why wouldn't you just work as a private sitter? The lowest the people who work here should be accepting is $13 an hour for one child. You can make about $11 an hour for watching three children, depending on how generous the parents are. The base pay needs to start at $13.

    Advice to Management

    Do not ask people to pay you for stuff you require them to have. Do not take money from people who have little of it just because they quit after realizing your company was bogus, and that you are making way more money off of families and sitters than you deserve to.
