The in-home assessment is the most important step of our process and separates Arlee’s Angels from other agencies. We want to understand your needs and what truly goes on in your home. This helps us find your ideal nanny. We will discuss in detail what you feel the job entails and what type of candidate you envision for this job. We will also discuss the nanny’s schedule, on-the-job expectations, personality traits, and your personal family philosophies.
Once there is a clear understanding of what you are looking for, the process of interviewing potential candidates begins. Each nanny is put through a three-part interview process. This process includes a phone interview, a face-to-face interview and a thorough reference and background check. Once there are qualified candidates that match your description, you will receive their detailed Nanny Profiles. Each Nanny Profile includes a comprehensive summary of the nanny’s background, qualifications, and work-related experience.
Once you have selected a few candidate(s), we introduce you to them through email so you can coordinate a good time to meet. We are also available to support you in an arranged meeting as well. This is your chance to learn as much as you can about each candidate to determine if you feel they are the right fit. Your post interview feedback is essential in helping with the search process.
You can choose one or more candidates to ask back for a trial period. This is an opportunity to connect with the nanny and find out if they would be a good fit for your family. The working interview is your opportunity to acclimate the nanny to your home and your family’s day-to-day activities. The interview also helps you set expectations and observe how they interact with your child(ren) and the rest of your family.
If you decide you would like to officially hire our nanny, you will want to provide him/her with an initial verbal offer followed by a written work offer. This agreement will include everything from the nanny’s schedule, on-the-job expectations, pay rate, benefits, and completion of any certificates, background checks or vaccinations. A detailed family/nanny work offer is provided by the agency during this phase of the process.
Each candidate starts the background and screening process before being represented by the agency. All potential candidates will have been cleared and vetted prior to you meeting them.
