pre new years cl wtf with mary poppinz
.... WHAT?!

1) Looking for the Perfect Nanny for 3 children full-time (California)
We are looking for a nanny to care for our three children in our home. We have a 6 month old boy, an almost 5 year old girl, and a 7 year old boy. The hours are 9AM to 6PM. The oldest is in school until 2:30PM and the middle one is in preschool on M-W-F from 12:30PM to 3:30PM. You would have all three kids full-time during school breaks. You must have the ability to take care of the infant and all his developmental and physical needs while still keeping the older 2 engaged in creative and fun activities (NO TV). You must be able to set limits and maintain composure and keep all three children safe, happy, stimulated, and well cared for at all times. Duties are all child-related. Requirements are as follows:

Full-time experience caring for both infants and active, older children simultaneously for more than one year with the same family
Perfect references with parents who say "I can't think of anything negative about......(insert your name)" when I ask them if there were any areas of weakness.
Own reliable car with room for 1 infant seat and 2 booster seats in the back. Car must be a 2005 or newer.
Perfect driving record with no accidents ever. We will order a copy of your driving record AND give you a one hour driving test before offering you the position.
Trustline registered with no criminal background
Be willing to work a two week trial period with close supervision before we offer you the job
CPR and First Aid with preferred further training in child and home safety
Signed document from a physician (we provide the document) stating that you are smoke-free, drug-free, TB free, and in excellent health
Willing to follow parent's directions exactly
Mature in nature and NOT bring personal problems or drama to work. Do not reply if you're going to come here all upset because of drama you're having with a boyfriend, roommate, or family member.
Can handle constructive criticism without getting defensive
Neat, clean, and organized. No scatterbrains or slobs. We realize there will be messes but the nanny should be willing to clean up after all three children and herself, of course.

Please include the following information in body of the e-mail rather than as an attached resume. We will delete e-mails that do not have all the information:

Your full name: we will call trustline to verify that you are listed with them. If you're not, we will not contact you back.
Your age and number of years as a nanny
A description of your personal living situation right now (are you married, living with a boyfriend, living with roommate, living with relatives?)
Do you have your own children? What ages? If so, who will take care of them while you work for us? (you may NOT bring them with you)
A vivid description of your most recent nanny position
An example activity for a crawling infant
An example activity for 5-7 year olds
The names and phone numbers from two families you have previously worked for as a FULL-TIME NANNY. We will call them before even setting up an interview
Your salary requirements

We look forward to hearing from you,
David and Karen

2) Anyone available tomorrow? (Sacramento)
Merry Christmas everyone! This is last minute but my babysitter is stranded at her mother's house until tomorrow night and I work at 12. If anyone lives close off the 80 and would be available tomorrow until 5 to watch a three year old boy I can pay $30 in cash for the few hours. Thanks! Erin J****

3) Warning: New Nanny Position is a Fake (Milwaukee)
This notice is to let anyone who answers an ad for a nanny position in Mayville WI it is not what it appears to be. This guy will promise expense free living w/ room and board. What he fails to mention is that he is only willing to $40.00 a week in exchange for a sleeping room w/ no heat. You pay for your own groceries or groceries for the house, provide child care over 70 hours a week, pet sit every weekend for a pitt bull and 2 cats, are expected to clean, cook, do laundry, shovel snow take out trash, and clean filthy litter boxes. This guy is a truck driver and makes a $1000 plus a week but refuses to pay a proper wage. Be warned....I'm not the 1st nanny he has screwed over...I'm the 5th.

4) Live-in Nanny Needed (Las Vegas)
Minimum of 5 years of verifiable experience
Provide 5 references (only 2 of which may be family members)
Valid NEVADA driver license
Provide copy of your vehicle registration and insurance (if you have your own transportation)
Pass local (LVMPD) and federal background check (FBI)
Possess current childcare license
CPR/First Aid Certified (provide proof of same)
Fluent English

Your nanny services will only be required Monday through Friday from 3pm to approximately 7pm (sometimes earlier) with very occasional Friday, Saturday or Sunday nights but it will only be one of those nights, not all three. On some occasion, Fridays will not be necessary. Holidays will not be necessary either. This position will average out to 15-20 hours per week as sometimes your nanny service will be required and sometimes it will not but I like to list Monday through Friday 3pm-7pm to give you a general idea as to when your nanny services are needed. Light housekeeping such as cooking and running errands will be requested from time to time. You will be living with us full-time but your nanny services will only be needed part-time. The rest of the time, you would be more of a roommate than a nanny. I am being generous about this to avoid any hassle. It will be much more difficult for me to ask someone to live with us part-time and live in their own house part-time but I also do not need a full-time nanny.

It would be more convenient if you had your own transportation and if you do, your monthly fuel will be paid for and of course, room and board, food, entertainment and basic necessities will be provided.

You will be caring for two small children (both are older than 5 but because there are many perverted criminals living amongst us, I will not reveal if my children are boys or girls or their ages until AFTER you have passed both background checks).

I will conduct two meetings with you (1st will be a general interview, 2nd will be a more extensive interview provided you passed both background checks). This is a PERMANENT position. To ensure that this is a permanent position, a yearly contract will be signed to not only assure you that your job is secure, but to also assure me that you will not suddenly walk out from your position with a key to my house and/or potentially harm my children. If you plan on moving anytime in the near future, getting married, having your own children in the next couple of years, or any other reason that would prevent you from fulfilling your nanny duties, please do not apply for this position. I need a stable nanny to care for and love my children until they reach of age because stability is very important in children's lives. I do not wish to re-hire different nannies throughout their childhood. If hired, you will be more than just a nanny to us, you will be a friend and a part of the family. And of course, you will be included in all of our family outings and functions.

If you already have a pet, that will be fine but we already have 1 dog and 1 cat so applicant must be able to tolerate being around them (you will not be asked to care for the animals).

Be advised that my line of work is with the law so I will not tolerate anyone who misrepresents themselves. If you have any pending criminal charges against you, you will not be considered for the position. The 5 references you will be providing will have a less-intrusive background check performed as well. Since you will be living in my home I need to be assured that you do not associate with anyone with a criminal background (I prefer not to be murdered or have my house robbed). If you have not been fingerprinted, you will be required to do so (Metro PD has Fingerprinting Technicians that will be able to do this). I am taking extra safety precautions because you will be caring for my children, not an intangible item (besides, if you have nothing to hide, then you don't need to worry). If you think I am asking for too much, do yourself and me a favor, don't apply. Please email your resume. Salary DOE.

15) Jan - May Sitter Comfortable with 3-4 kids (Georgia)
Marietta, GA 30064 (8 miles away)
Monday, 1/11/2010 through
Wednesday, 5/5/2010

Hours are:
Mondays: 9:30 - 1:45 (3 kids)
Wednesdays: 2:30 - 6:30 (4 kids)

Pay is: $170 every two weeks.

Kids: all girls; almost 5, 3, 2, and 2 months old. Very well behaved, fun, and easygoing.

I teach music lessons at two local schools. I need a responsible, fun babysitter who could sit with my girls on Mondays and Wednesdays for the hours specified above while I am teaching. On Mondays, only the 3 younger ones would be home as my oldest is in preschool. On Wednesdays, all 4 would be home. The hours are very short, but I need someone who is very comfortable with multiple small children and who has lots of patience and does not get stressed out easily.
The girls are VERY good and really sweet and lots of fun. But it is still a big job to be with them all so I need to find a great match. We had a sitter we used up until this month but she is graduated from school now and is moving so we are stuck for next semester! The girls loved her and I need to find a good replacement as fast as possible! We like sitters who come with a good attitude, project a good mood to the girls, and are creative and sweet. Thanks in advance for any interest in this position!

If the hours and personality are a good match, I also will be teaching next year after the summer break and would like to continue with the same babysitter if it is something the applicant is interested in!

25) RE: Babysitter $30/hour - SCAM! (Norfolk)
Be careful when responding to this ad. I got a response, and it was something else to be sure. They said they have priceless artwork, jewlry etc. in the house, and that in order to be considered for the job, you are required to use and pass a credit report they say is free. It provides the weblink for the credit report.. They also mention the kids have private tutors and drivers and that if you want to stay on the estate, you can rent a room. Gee, sounds great! I bet they have a private jet too! Any ad that says you can use a free credit reporting web site is a SCAM! And just who hires a babysitter and then makes the potential employee rent a room from them?!?!?
