I was hired by a family I met through The Washburn Agency a couple of months ago and it was a great experience all around. The agency presented several jobs that met what I was looking for. I felt like they really understood me and what I wanted in a job. There was no pressure to go on interviews and I felt like they cared more about what would make me happy then just making a placement. I would highly recommend The Washburn Agency to all Nannies and families!

I just hired a Nanny through The Washburn Agency and was very happy. Process was quick and we had several excellent candidates to choose from. Sarah was very helpful throughout the whole process, assisted in putting together a work agreement, walked us through the negotiations and is extremely responsive to emails and phone calls. Highly recommend!

After years of teaching I decided it was time to change career paths and get into a Nanny position. I learned of the Washburn agency through my job search with Care.com
I immediately reached out to them through email and heard from Meg right away. We set up an appointment to meet and had a great conversation. Meg was so kind and helpful. She assured me we would find the right family for me and she was absolutely correct! I am working for a wonderful family and couldn't be happier! I highly recommend reaching out to Meg and Sarah at the Washburn agency. They are good people and consummate professionals!

I just found a great job through The Washburn Agency. They were quick to get my information over to the families that I was interested in and extremely responsive to my endless amount of questions. I received a job offer from one position that was not a good fit for me and they never pressured me to take the job. I accepted another offer from a family through them and so happy I did. I worked with both Meg and Sarah and couldn't have asked for a better team of people to have behind me. They reviewed my contract, helped me negotiate a great hourly rate and always had my best interests in mind. I would highly recommend calling them!

Working with the Washburn Agency was an extreme disappointment. I have 10+ years is experience in this industry and I was shocked at how unreliable and disorganized their business was.

The few interviews I was on were very disappointing. I went on one interview and the family was an awful fit for both of us. When I reached out to decline the job I couldn't get a hold of the family so I reached out to the agency. A week later I finally got a phone call from the agency and they said "Oh we thought we called you, I guess we forgot...you didn't get the job..." I briefly tried to continue working with them after that but I became offended after several other interactions.

I very highly recommend never using this agency.

Why would you call a family to decline a job you were never offered?

I found a great nanny job through The Washburn Agency. They sent me job descriptions until I found what I was looking for. Great experience all around!

Hi Matthew. I emailed back and forth with Sarah Hunt at Audiosocket tyirng to ID one of your songs. *Anything* is on the featured list at Animoto. But it shows as being on your Goodbye EP. And I sorta could tell it wasn't you singing. So anyway, she said she's reached out to you about how I might acquire the song. Just wanted to say hi and thanks.

I applied with their agency and they said they had a position, but it took them forever to get back to me about it. And when they did, the position was gone. It was not professional at all.
