What Users Say: (From Indeed)

“I genuinely enjoy caring for the children at my job. I have learned that childcare can be rewarding in many aspects of life. I have never dealt with sitter city management. The workplace culture is dependent on the house but for the most part it is great. The hardest part of the job is finding a family that needs my services. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting paid to spend time with kiddos, which I love doing even without pay!”

“Sittercity is easy to used and nice people! thankful for the relationships I’ve been able to build because of this site. Love taking care of sweet kids!”

“Working with Sittercity is a different experience every time because each parent has different wants and needs for their children but I always enjoyed it and took pleasure in meeting the parents and child’s needs.”
