Tamara came to my home twice for an interview with her husband. She promised and I promised her I will give the job. She asked me two weeks before starting, The night before starting she called me after 8:30 om that she was not coming because she took another job! EXTREMELY UNPROFESSIONAL!!!! YOU CANNOT TRUST HER. SHE NEVER GAVE ME THE REVIEW OF TH EPEOPLE SHE WAS WORKING BEFORE ONLY A REFERENCE FROM ISRAEL SHE IS ONLY AFTER MONEY! I DO NOT RECOMEND HER!!!

Provider's Response

The facts this prospective employer states are not entirely true. As to the 2 weeks needed before starting, I had to give my current employer at the time, notice. I was living and working in Brooklyn during that period. She agreed to wait the 2 weeks before starting.
Originally, my duties would have been to care for one 8 month old baby and look after a 6 year old girl after she arrived home from school in the afternoon. In addition, we agreed that I would do light laundry for the baby. Also, we discussed the fact that I do not drive. My husband offered to take care of the girls transportation needs in the morning after dropping me off at work at no charge.
After the 2 weeks, all was set . The night before starting, I went to my new employers apartment for final instructions for my fist morning with the baby. However, at that time, she told me I would have more duties than previously agreed to. These included cleaning the entire apartment regularly and doing laundry for the entire family regularly for 5 people. The Laundromat was on the first floor and the apartment was on the second floor with no elevator in building.
That night I discussed these new duties not mentioned two weeks ago, with my husband. We agreed that $8 an hour was not enough for all that work. We also thought it unfair that these things were not discussed from the beginning.
So that night, I called her to say that I am not able do all that work and safely look after an 8 month old. Also, the trust that would be needed between her and I would not be there.

We had the pleasure of having Tamara work for us for the past 2 years. From the start we felt very comfortable with her. Tamara is extremely reliable, loving and trustworthy. We have 3 children - 8,6 and 4 years old. Tamara would come early in the mornings and help them get ready for school. She would then spend most of the day with my 4 year old taking him to and picking him up from school, taking him to the park, making playdates and playing games with him. She would prepare the kids dinner and bathe them before I got home from work. She treated my kids like her own family and the kids adore her.
Tamara also did housekeeping for us. She kept our home neat and clean and did our laundry. Tamara would go above and beyond what was in her job description to do whatever she thought what was best for us and that would make our lives easier.
Our children will now be in school full time so we do not need the same help as we did before. I would highly recommend Tamara and we will miss her but know we will stay in touch as she has become part of the family.
Please feel for to contact me if you have any questions or want any further information. My cell # is 201-527-5394.

Sincerely,
Laurie Tare
