Professional Non Smoking Nanny Needed Immediately! (Charlotte)
Couple seeks dedicated, reliable, non smoking, educated, very clean nanny for our toddler. This ideal nanny is needed immediately. Rate of pay is $9.50 per hour, and you are paid via paycheck twice a month, on the 15th & 30th. Must have references, a clean, reliable vehicle, and proof insurance/valid drivers license. We want our child to be kept active with creative things to do every day such as reading, art, trips to the park/museum, etc. TV is OK as long as it is Noggin or another kid associated channel. We don't prefer stay at home moms unless you are certain you can handle your child and ours with equal attention. You must be very clean, with a warm demeanor and genuine liking for children. We are not looking for a BABYSITTER, we are looking for a DEDICATED, Loving, NANNY, there is a big difference. You must be at least 18 years of age. Our child would be kept in your home, until we've had 90 days to make sure all is well to be trusted in our home alone and a steady connection with our child has been established. We perform raise reviews every 3 months, and benefits are offered after 120 days. This position is taxed regarding your paycheck, and a contract will be put in place specifying all of our terms. We desire to have two trial days with you to make sure you are a good fit, and proceed from there. My ours(the mom #1) are from 9:30-6:30 M-F. Our child would need to be kept during these hours, and occasionally on some Saturdays/Sundays for "couple time" as one of us is in the Marines, so our time is limited and sparse together. This is an example of the regimen we'd need to be followed: 9:00am- Pick up of our child from my office Breakfast, breakfast snack upon arrival at your home(though our child would be fed something light before coming to you), interactive learning activities Noon/1:00pm- Lunch, more interactive activities, possible light nap not to exceed an hour and twenty minutes 4/5PM-Generous snack, as our child eats dinner at home. If you prepare dinner around this time, that would be fine if you feed them dinner, just preferably a snack and a small amount of dinner so they can eat at home with us. 6:30pm- Drop off of our child at my office. We are not paying over this rate per hour, and will not be covering any additional expenses. Leading child care centers charge $213.00 per week for 12 hour care, meals, pickup, and interactive activities and more for toddlers our child's age, so we are compensating well above the pay range. Our office is located in the Business district of University, so if the distance is too far for you, please do NOT reply. If interested, and qualified, please contact us immediately by replying to this ad with a valid phone number, and availability for an interview as we do need someone immediately. We are not interested in daycare centers, stay at home mothers incapable of handling more than one child, or people without their own home and transportation. We do not mean to sound difficult, we have just found we're having to spell every detail out as many people on this site are uncertain about their work capabilties, accepting our terms, and actualy possessing the traits we seek. Thanks a lot!

Response from angry CL reader:
Re: Professional Non Smoking Nanny Needed Immediately!
"Our child would be kept in your home, until we've had 90 days to make sure all is well to be trusted in our home alone and a steady connection with our child has been established."
SO YOUR VALUABLES AT YOUR HOME ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAT THE WELFARE OF YOUR CHILD IS WHAT YOU'RE SAYING. YOU WOULD TRUST SOMEONE TO KEEP YOUR CHILD IN THEIR HOME BEFORE KEEPING YOUR CHILD IN YOUR HOME?? STRANGE
"If you prepare dinner around this time, that would be fine if you feed them dinner."
YOU SHOULD BE THANKFUL IF THE NANNY WANTS TO PROVIDE DINNER, "THAT WOULD BE FINE" - HOW KIND OF YOU TO LET SOMEONE ELSE FEED YOUR CHILD
"Pick up our child from the office and Drop off of our child at my office."
YOU CAN'T EVEN LEAVE THE OFFICE TO DROP OFF AND PICK UP YOUR CHILD? OR TRYING TO SAVE EXTRA TRAVEL TIME, SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO PAY OVER THAT HUGE $9.50
"Possible light nap not to exceed an hour and twenty minutes."
POOR CHILD HAS LIMITS ON HOW LONG SHE CAN TAKE A NAP. WOW. CONTRACT, YOUR TERMS, ETC. YOU DON'T MEAN TO SOUND "DIFFICULT"?? YOU SOUND LIKE YOUR CHILD IS A BUSINESS DEAL -- VERY SAD IF THE PAY WAS SO GREAT AT $9.50 AN HOUR YOU WOULDN'T HAVE HAD TO TAKE THE TIME TO JUSTIFY IT IN COMPARISON TO DAYCARE, WHICH HOUSES MANY MORE THAN ONE CHILD AT A TIME, SO IN ACTUALITY YOU ARE CERTAINLY NOT PAYING ABOVE AVERAGE. YOU ARE ACTUALLY PAYING BELOW AVERAGE WHICH IS $10/HR, NOT INCLUDE PICK UP AND DELIVERY OF YOUR CHILD IN NEED OF A NANNY IMMEDIATELY -- IMMEDIATELY? GOOD LUCK FINDING SOMEONE AT ALL. I FEEL SORRY FOR YOUR LITTLE ONE.
