We all have a go-to list of questions that we ask on reference calls. It gets really impressive (or sad, not sure) once you’ve reached a point where you don’t even have to look down at the paper for what question to ask next. Then you think, if you can go on autopilot asking these questions, can your reference go on autopilot answering them?
This begs the question, how can you determine if a nanny reference is real? It’s easy for friends to team up, give a false name, and rave about him/her to their potential employer. Today, parents are lucky that there are a variety of ways that they can make sure the references they receive are real. In a recent article published by Nanny Interview Questions, they discuss how to recognize if the nanny is right for the family, as well as if the family is right for the nanny.
We outlined a handful of the asking questions from the article below:
1. What’s the worst discipline experience you’ve had?
2. How many nannies have you had?
3. How do you plan to support me when I discipline your children?
4. Do you offer healthcare?
5. What’s the one thing you’re really looking for in a nanny?
