Once the screening process is complete, your profile and references are emailed to families whose positions you have requested. Families contact you directly to schedule appointments for interviews. When you accept an interview or a working Interview, it is important to contact the office to let us know.
After a phone interview, and in person interview, the family will ask you for a working interview, and this can be up to a full week, so as to give both parties an opportunity to be sure they can work together long term. The family will pay you for this week of work and near the end of the week, you will go through the working agreement together, and sign it. This document will delineate your duties, hours, pay, vacation, paid holidays and much more.
