We Take "Super" SeriouslySeriously
Chicago Super Sitters is taking COVID-19 very seriously.
Childcare has been deemed an essential service, so as of now, we are still actively hiring and placing sitters. We will continue as long as it is safe to do so.
We are aware of the social and moral responsibility we have at this moment. For this reason, ALL SITTERS will be asked to complete a ‘Quarantine/Exposure’ Form so that we can safely place childcare workers in homes.
We want the best for you and the best from you
Why should you become a Chicago Super Sitter? We know what makes a babysitter great and what makes a great babysitter happy. Not only do we know how everything works, we know how hard the job can be. We expect a lot from our sitters, and that’s why we’ve got your back. We give advice when you need it, we help nurture your strengths, and we make sure you feel like a valued part of our team. We screen each family before you meet them and then provide you with a detailed profile. There are no surprises when you walk in the door. We match our sitters to families based on personality, parenting style, location, and schedule needs.
1. Submit your Application
We review it and if we like what we see, we contact you directly. We are looking for details, professionalism, and a genuine interest in working with children.
2. Phone Interview
We schedule a call and if we like what we hear, we keep you moving forward.
3. Reference Check
We ask for a minimum of three recent (non-family) childcare references and one professional reference. And we definitely check their validity. All check out? You keep going.
Super Tip: Start collecting your references right away (we’ll provide you a link) and ask for more than you need. Many applicants drop off at this stage because their references aren’t being cooperative.
4. In-person Interview *During CV19, this is being done by video
We want as many perspectives as possible and really want to know who you are. You will meet in-person with a CSSitters staff member for a long screening to help assess qualifications and professionalism. If this goes well, we’ll keep things moving.
5. Meeting with Tori
Tori is very serious about who is selected to represent her company and still meets with all candidates before they join the roster. If she thinks you have what it takes, you’ll move to the home stretch.
6. on-boarding and paperwork
This is the run from third base to home plate – you are close, but not there yet. There are calendar and scheduling instructions, Sitter Policies and Expectations to revise, and final details to review (by you, and by us).
Super Tip: Don’t flake out during this part. These are important details that we must have and it is still part of the screening and our search for professionalism. Remember, you haven’t hit home plate yet.
7. Background Check & CPR Validated
These are non-negotiable and must be completed before you start working. We pay for the background check, you pay for the CPR.
8. Officially Become A chicago super sitter
Once everything checks out and if after the long hiring process we feel we are a good fit for each other, we invite you to join the team and get you working!
Please understand that although being a babysitter includes lots of giggling, blowing bubbles, and peek-a-boo, we take our screening process VERY seriously. As we have said, our reputation relies on our caliber of sitters, and we will only work with the best.
