The website requires potential hires to subscribe to a monthly background check membership after you "fail" the no-charge name and address verification.I am currently employed as a part-time researcher working with children ages 3 yrs to 5 yrs.
I am also currently employed as a substitute teacher working with minors. Both these agencies perform fingerprinting background checks. Additionally, I have worked for other agencies that require fingerprinting background checks. I understand the importance of maintaining children safe, but I am offended that my name and address failed their background check since I have lived at the same address for 16 years and have worked for federally funded agencies that run true in-depth background checks that cost about $50.
Trust me, my name and address come up on the most basic searches. At $9.99 per month for their most basic background check, a sitter is paying about $120 a year and is promoted as having a basic badge (they give badges based on how much you pay per month). This benefits neither the person seeking employment nor the family seeking a sitter. However, it benefits Sittercity's profits since the background fee is collected prior to employment.
A job seeker could pay $9.99 per month for the basic badge until infinity and this won't guarantee that families will employ you.I saw the sitter position posted on Indeed.com and the short term assignment and part-time split-shift schedule seemed perfect for my current availability.
