Our process for getting you the perfect sitter was designed with three things in mind - compatability, safety and simplicity.
Our Vetting Process
Safety first for peace of mind
Application: Each of our sitters is required to submit an extensive application with special note to their experience level, personal contact information, personal preference, work references, and education.
Reference Check: PlatinumSitters will contact no less than two references (often more), closely examine their past experiences, professionalism and relationship with the families they have worked for.
In-person Interview: PlatinumSitters conducts a one-on-one interview with every sitter applicant with specific inquiries about their level of experience, past interactions with children, circumstantial questions applicable to "future" clients, their service mindset, professionalism and character.
Personality Assessment: Each sitter has their personality assessed to help us better determine the right fit for our members.
Background Check (Via GoodHire): PlatinumSitters is fully compliant with the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and privacy laws and will generate a report for each sitter which contains their SSN trace, address history and criminal and sex offender check. Only applicant who have reports that come back as "clean" will move on to the next steps of our vetting process.
Real-time Availability: All approved sitters are required to enter their availability into our system and their schedules are accessible for viewing by our members. To ensure real-time accuracy, PlatinumSitters contacts sitters each month to ensure that their availability is up-to-date throughout the month.
Community Rating: At the completion of every booking, members are encouraged to provide a review of their sitter with our 5-star rating system. We constantly monitor our sitters and our service to our members.
