Recurring Sitters

Recurring Sitters 

How do I book the same sitter for multiple days?

Purchase a Sitter Pass and post a  recurring job in the app.  Be sure to set a competitive hourly rate.  Sitters apply to jobs based on the hourly rate, location, and availability.


How do I book the same sitter each week?

Consistency is important to everyone. Many sitter schedules change each semester due to class schedules, extracurricular activities, and other babysitting jobs. Increase the likelihood of booking a consistent sitter by:

  • Review sitters and select Favorite sitters. Favorite sitters are notified first when your family posts a job.
  • Be kind. Surveyed sitters reported “kindness” is the thing they value most.
  • Post jobs at least two days in advance.


How far in advance should I post my job?

Finding the right fit in a recurring sitter takes time - for families and sitters.  We recommend posting jobs up to two weeks in advance to give applicants time to apply and adjust their schedules.


Can I interview sitters in advance of booking them?

Yes. To interview a sitter, book the sitter for at least one job in your recurring series.  Once you have booked the sitter, use chat to request a phone or virtual interview. If it's not a fit, cancel the job or contact Support for assistance.


How can I get more sitter applicants for my job?

Sitter applications depend on availability, hourly rate, location - and how far in advance you post the job. Post recurring jobs in advance and set a competitive hourly rate to attract applicants.


How long will it take for sitters to apply to my job?

Recurring jobs often require up to two weeks for sitters to plan their schedules. Check the status of your jobs at any time on your Upcoming Jobs page in the app. Turn on notifications to be kept informed about applicants.
