Skills & Abilities
My name is Janet Desiree was good at first but it became to where I could not depend on her she has forgot to get my daughter to take her to school and has also left my daughter at school never showed up she is an excuse for everything and there are times she doesn't even answer your text or phone calls and never lets you know if she can't show. She us put me In a bind espically since my husband has deployed and with my job I wouldn't recommend her she is t dependable at all!!!!!
Hello my name is Nicole Robinson. I hired Desiree. She seemed very pleasant but was late for the interview. She showed up for one day and watched my son who was in a bad accident and has to use a wheel chair and is in a cast. No issues so I thought. She said she would see me the next day and have a good evening. She was a no show. She didn't call me, text me or let me know that she was not coming. I contacted by all means and still no reply. It put me in a bind because I have to be at work and I am a single parent and my son can not be left alone. Very disappointed in her professionalism.
