200 gift certificate to my fave store plus cashmere sweater.
10 to 13.50 per hour for 1 or 2 children.
5 years with family in Morris County, NJ.
Now down to about 25 hrs a week due to school time. Kids 3 and 5, poorly behaved, I am underpaid, never pay for their vacation time off, time to move on.

zero! not a phone call, card, or gift.
sometimes they throw some money on the first paycheck of the year.
i am really crossing my fingers for that because my debt is insane from grad school.

* Bonus this year (2015): $1,000 plus they paid me my salary for the week off, which is something they always do. I told my boss about a month ago when we were taking about Xmas traditions that my favorite was getting stocking because my mom stuffed it and wrapped every gift inside. So my sweet boss did the samething for me which was really nice since this is the first Xmas without my mom since she passed away in July. She knows I love flavored olive oils so she put 4 different ones in the stocking, plus she even wrapped the check, she added a cute letter from my charge about everything she likes best about me and what her favorite thing to do with me is, etc. it was very sweet!
* Your weekly salary: $680.00
* Any supplementary gifts aside from the Bonus: mentioned above, my boss is one of the sweetest, most thoughtful people I know. I really feel like apart of there family.
* Length of time you have worked for the Family: 16 months
* City, State and Country where you live:Walnut Creek, CA
* Additional comments:I love my job, we haven't had one issue, we even go out to dinners on our own because we like each other so much!

Bonus this year (2015): 200.00 gift card to one of my favorite stores
* Your weekly salary: Part time (around 17 hours a week) 350.00 (includes weekly gas allowance also)
* Any supplementary gifts aside from the Bonus: thank you cards
* Length of time you have worked for the Family: ~4 months
* City, State and Country where you live: Bay Area, CA
* Additional comments: Great family to work for; parent(s) usually come home early but always pay me for the full hours and the kids are honestly a blast to be with. I use to work as a preschool teacher or full time nanny but have decided to go in a different career direction and am back in school so this will be the last family I will be providing childcare for. Great to end my career Working with children on a good note :)

No bonus. Got a shirt, coffee cup and coffee gift card. 2 weeks paid off.
*I work 12 hours a week (3 days) $240/week-- no driving, nanny car.
*6 months with the family
*Bay Area, CA
*They are a good family, I was initially hired at 6 hours a week (2 days) but after my last family let me go (for refusing to drive a 5 year old w/o a car seat) they increased my hours.

Other job: I work at a school, so no bonus, crummy pay, but I like it.

Summer: I plan on getting a NF for 30+ hours a week (4 days)

Bonus: $0
My nanny family did get me two very nice Christmas gifts, a watch and a bracelet and they gave me a week off and said they'd reach out to me to pay me for it. They haven't yet.
Part time now that the kids are in school: 22.5 hours a week at 17.00 an hour. I do too much and take on anything that is asked of me even if it has nothing to do with child care. I have even put off finding a new full time job because they express how much they need me.
Length of time with family: almost 3 years
One year they paid me for my week off and one year they didn't. I was honestly scared this year they wouldn't too.

I do love the family and give them the best and most loving care, but it has taken a toll on me to be everything for them. I am searching for a new job now.

To the snooty one who is bashing in the comments. I emailed my response, and I see it copy and pasted here in the comments by anonymous. Obviously it's the page admin posting most of these rather than the submitting nannies. Take a chill pill
