I would never have someone take care of my child without references. Doesn’t matter that you’re home. You don’t have time to make 2-3 phone calls?

Call on the references. You can feel it out whether they’re real or not.

Thank you all for sharing your thoughts. I’ll probably ask her if she’s willing to do a background check on her first day on Monday and possibly references. It really helps to know about other mom’s thoughts and experiences!

Will you be home when she is there? If so I’d say yes, if not I’d be hesitant

Yes hubs and I’ll both be home, and most of the time I’ll be working in the kitchen right next to the living room where baby’s play area is (there’s no divide) so I can see. Only time baby will be be out of sight is when they go upstairs to his bedroom. Hallway has no cameras but his bedroom has his baby monitor. Honestly, we have nothing to steal and I don’t see why someone would try to harm a baby intentionally, so I’m more concerned about how careful she is. I’m not sure what else I need to be worried about though so I’m open to any thoughts. She’s a older lady who raised her own daughter

If you had no red flags and y’all will both be there and you need help I’d give it a shot

No red flags yet. She told me why she quit her most recent employer, and her reason made sense to me. Stayed with them for 1.5 years. I figured her story sounded pretty real and honest

WHY? Been waiting an hour for scheduled 1st round interview call, crickets.

After several reschedules, I was finally confirmed with the actual dial-in information ;) for two days 5 interviews. I did the first one with the hiring manager and someone shadowing him. Interviewers did not show up for the second two meetings on the schedule. Not sure what to do at this point. This is AWS. Folks are saying they went through the process pretty quickly. I feel like I already lost a huge amount of time getting the save the date and then taking time off from work.

Been in Big4 for 6 years now, and I still don't get it. Why on earth are these firms thinking with requiring technology consultants to handle invoicing, engagement creation, timesheet code creation, and other misc. financial tasks. Can't we have a dedicated finance team per client to handle the misc. financial related mess in the engagement lifecycle instead of requiring technical folks to waste precious hours on stuff that really isn't transferrable?
