There are some cruel families out there.. I used to work for a family of doctors who would expect me to be on call 24/7 nothing I´ve done was ever good enough I stayed for 3 years because of the money.

That´s way to low your right especially with them having the use of your car €10 to 15 after tax would be more like it

Worked for some horrible people in the pass including one women who worked for the HSE the kids were very neglected the bed rooms were filthy and the eldest son hadent a stitch of clothes to his name . I remember being there from 9am to 12 pm on day they desided to go out the house was freezing and I ended up getting very sick . Then I worked for a women who had just separated from husband the kids were very badly affected by it and would take their frustrations out on me I loved the kids but couldn´t handle it the mother was was obsessed with cleaning and would have a fit if I didn´t have the place spotless all this while trying to look after 3 emotionally destirbed kids

See some people offering to pay as little as €5 ph when you tell them your rate is €10 they look at you as if you have 10 heads

they were taking advantage of you and they will try again with the next person.did they also use your car for themselves or did you use it for school pick ups.the likes of these people will look for the cheapest of the cheap but expect top care for the kids.hope you get something better soon.

I´m looking after 4 kids full time in their own house 40 hrs a week with the use of my own car.
The family is nice and easy going there is no cooking or cleaning involved
I get €10 gross an hr (€8 after taxes) which I´m my opinion is way too low
I have 11 years of experience, fantastic references & I love to look after kids
Am I being taken for granted or is that ok?

I was told it is what it is so I dnt think there is any point of wasting my time.
I absolutely love the kids but at the end of the day we work for the money not chocolate buttons ".

40 hours is a lot of time to you wouldn´t work that many hours a week in a Creche did they offer to pay you anything more when you pointed out your concerns ?
