Beware of Nanny Job Scams on Craigslist

We’ve had a large amount of nannies and babysitters that are registered with us call and tell us that they were almost scammed on Craigslist. It’s always the same story about how a family lures them in and tells them that they will hire them but that the nanny must send them a check and then the family will transfer part of that check back to them. Well, I ran across this news segment that exposes this scam for what it really is.

Please nannies, be careful. Some of my favorite nannies have almost fallen for this scam. If any family asks you to send them money, run!!!

Best,

Loving Nannies Staff

Why Should You Choose Loving Nannies vs. another agency?

Loving Nannies has been in business since 2000. Many agencies open and are gone within 6 months to a year. In addition, many nanny agencies operate solely on the side and do not have an active pool of qualified candidates ready to go. Loving Nannies interviews nannies all day, every day so that we can promptly send nannies over to interview with families the same or next day. Also, be careful on which nanny agency you ultimately choose. Many companies will just take your upfront retainer and will not send you anyone or at best a nanny they found through running a quick Craigslist ad. Many agencies are in it just for the upfront money or they will send you one nanny and make you feel like you have to hire this person. Ask the agency how many candidates they will be able to send you and make them put it in writing.

Make sure that any agency you use is an accredited member of the Better Business Bureau. If not, then you need to ask yourself -Why? If they are not a member of the BBB then people cannot report them. Loving Nannies is widely known and has a great reputation and an A+ standing with the Better Business Bureau. We will send you several qualified candidates that have had a face-to face interview with us, excellent references, thorough background checks and CPR/First Aid. In addition, many of our candidates have been with us for years, so we have placed them already and know they’re great! Loving Nannies also gives you a 1 year guarantee so that if your nanny leaves for any reason during the first year, you get a new replacement at no charge. Most agencies will only give you a 30-90 day guarantee.

Ask around and I guarantee that most if not everyone you meet will say that “Loving Nannies” is the most well-known and reputable nanny agency in San Diego. We have a great reputation among both San Diego nannies and families. Just ask and we will give you several referrals to our happy clients!

For more information, please call us toll-free at (800) 682-8154 or directly at (760) 943-6866.

Thank you!

“How to Interview a Nanny” provided by the INA

How do you interview a nanny? (From the INA website www.nanny.org)

Interviewing a nanny is extremely important, and many potential problems in the employer/employee relationship can be avoided if the interview is properly conducted. If you only learn two things about interviewing let them be these: 1) depend on your intuition; and 2) interview twice before hiring.

Be prepared to ask the right questions to tune into your feelings, since feelings are usually a good indicator in choosing the right nanny. Alth9ough you need to know about experience, training, background, specialized knowledge, driving record, etc., the more personalized questions will reflect your own priorities and be key to a successful match. “What if” questions are often helpful.

When describing family expectations, be specific about duties, hours, salary, time off, etc. Seeing and hearing the candidate’s reaction can provide valuable clues. Observe the nanny with your children. How do they interact? Is the nanny quiet or loud, shy or outgoing? Do the children like the nanny?

Carefully weigh all information, double-check references (even if they come from an agency) and interview the candidate(s) you like a second time. Listen to your intuition and remember that this person will be a part of your private life. Is this the person you want in your home working with your children?
