Re: Help Would you even interveiw this girl as a sitter?

I was O.K with her until I got to the part where she wants to know if her fiance would be allowed to come over. Then it just got creepier from there. Especially when she kept wanting to know about your house.

Good choice!

Re: Help Would you even interveiw this girl as a sitter?

Honestly I would not even keep on communicating with her! She is supposed to WANT the job... but she is making a lot of requests... I would NOT be ok with her having her fiance at my home... $12/h also seems a little high IMO... I used to babysitt for way less and i was a college student and teacher assistant at the time...
Anyone else responded to your post?

Re: Help Would you even interveiw this girl as a sitter?

mama, i'm so glad you didn't decide to go forward with her. i've been a babysitter/nanny before, and hired two babysitters in the past. there is NO WAY i would ever have acted like that, and would have said "see ya" to anyone who acted like that before interviewing.

what has worked best for us is to ask around for a recommendation from people we trust. it looks like you've hired someone, so hopefully it will work out for you!

so glad you didn't go with her. Even her emails seemed a little sketchy, I realize not everyone has perfect English and grammar. But we are talking about employment here. It sounded on the verge of a scam....Glad you found someone else.

If your gut says "no," then the answer is NO. Several things stand out as feeling awkward to me. Trust your instinct.

I'm not even going to read teh e-mail. If she gives you "bad vibes" NO. Do not interview her. Go with the mommy gut.
