The best thing about Usit it their customer service. Whenever I have questions about the babysitting job, I call or email and they answer very quickly and are always willing to help.

Parent’s can customize their specific requirements for a babysitting job.
You can view which students applied for your job.
Get access into each student’s profile to see their rating and comments from other parents.
Once you book a student for a job, you can view the job through the app, and there is the option to contact the student through text or Facetime! Usit recommends that you contact the student as a confirmation once they accept you for the job.
Usit requires a credit card to register before you post a job. You will not be charged until you complete a job.
Your address does not have to be accurate, just proximate of where you live. We use the address to help students pick a job in their area. Once you choose a babysitter, it is recommended that you communicate your actual address, so they have no trouble finding it.
No, you can only get access to their contact information after you chose one.
We do not have the option of editing the job after it has been published or live. But you can always delete it and make a new one. If you make a change to a job where you have already accepted the student, make sure to inform him/her of the modification.
Once the job ends, you will have the option to refer and rate the student. Once both you and the student have rated each other, the job will finalize, and the student will receive payment through the app. You will receive a receipt sent to your email.
Yes, the only requirement is that it has to be above $12.
Yes, once students have applied for the job, click on their picture and you will see what school they go to, what year they are in, and a short bio.
Not all, only students who have applied for a background check. Background-checked students will have a blue ring around their profile picture.
We verify each student attends the college they claim to attend by verifying the school email they provide us with. Further, those students that apply for background checks, we use Onfido, a background check company, to verify their identity. Keep in mind, all college students are background checked prior to starting college.

No, but we have a lot of students available that apply to jobs. We have an average of three students applying per job. If you are having trouble finding a babysitter then we recommend increasing the hourly rate and if that does not work, feel free to reach out to the Usit team, and we will do our best to help.
No, you will have to create a new job every time you need a Usitter.
