What can I expect the nanny/babysitter to do?
The duties of your employee, whether nanny or babysitter, will be outlined during the hiring process. We will ensure the agreed upon terms will be included in the final nanny agreement so as to avoid confusion between both parties.
How long will it take to find an employee that fits my needs?
There are many factors that must be taken into account when assessing the timeline, such as location, pay rate, and job requirements to name a few.
What are your fees?
I've filled out a Family Application, when can I expect a response?
We will be in touch with you within two business days to further discuss your needs and kick off the search.
What can you tell me about paying taxes for household help?
While NannyJi does not advise clients on tax matters and is not responsible for ensuring taxes are paid through these referrals, we can offer general information that can be beneficial to you.
Is an agency referral the only service you provide?
Currently, we only offer the Select and Premier options. However we are working on additional features to connect domestic workers with families and expanding our areas of service--stay tuned!
What is your process?
Do you guarantee that you will find me the help I'm seeking?
Unfortunately, we cannot realistically provide this guarantee due to the nature of this business.
I'm a nanny/housekeeper/cook, do I have to pay a fee to apply or be placed with a family?
No. At NannyJi we never collect any fees from nannies or other domestic workers. We also do not take a portion of your salary. Once you have been hired, you are the direct employee of the family.
How much do your nannies get paid?
This really depends on the job requirements. Aspects such as duties, hours worked, location, special skills required, and benefits offered are all taken into consideration.
Do you guarantee that employees hired through your service will remain at the position long term?
Nannies and all domestic workers--like all other employees in today's workforce--are at-will employees and are free to leave a position at any point, therefore we cannot provide any such guarantees.
Are you still operating during the pandemic? How has covid changed the hiring process?
We are still operating during covid. The pandemic has certainly changed the landscape of hiring domestic workers. Families and workers alike are more open to live-in situations to avoid exposure. Additionally, many are avoiding public transportation and choosing to either drive, get picked up/dropped off or take car services into work. Many families have also started to cover the cost of covid tests for any employees they are considering for employment, whether it's prior to their trials or start date.
