Nanny Advice

What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Nanny in Southfield:
"Pay and time off."
Don't work seven days a week for only $500 as a live-in nanny because it's stupid. Now I'm stuck here trying to figure out my next move.

Nanny in Denver:
"Nannies are taken advantage of."
Do your homework about FLSA and do not accept a job that doesn't pay overtime. Also don't accept a job without a written contract by the employer.

Nanny in Bryn Mawr:
"Don't low ball yourself."
Ensure to ask for all the benefits you could possibly want up front, and work down from there, including asking for the higher end on pay and negotiating downward if first offer is not accepted. Set clear boundaries and expectations on your end and the family you would be working for. The more children, the higher the rate. The more responsibilities on the list, the higher the rate.

Nanny in Littleton:
"Must love children."
Have your employer be specific of how many hours you're going to be working in a week.

Nanny in Owasso:
"Cover your bases."
Make sure you sit down and get a nanny contract made. It will help when they start trying to add things to your duty list without asking or giving you proper compensation for what you do that is extra. Also be sure they are paying the nanny taxes otherwise you won't receive a w-2 and that can hinder you from being approved for many things.
