Attendance is one of the primary concerns of parents, even before they have met you in person. It is a strong indicator of professionalism. Parents depend on you so they can be on time to their own events. As such, Chime has some expectations for sitters to remain on the Chime Platform:
- Be on time to all your bookings
- If you need to cancel a booking, please contact Member Support as quickly as possible
- Avoid no-shows. If you can't make a booking, always connect with Member Support team first. Please note that a cancellation <2 hours of a booking start time = no show.
Your attendance also impacts how you are promoted for jobs on the Chime platform as well, through your Reliability Rating. Sitters with higher reliability ratings may be presented before sitters with lower reliability ratings.
How is my Reliability Rating calculated? A sitter’s reliability rating is based on the past 90 days and is determined by comparing how many sittings a sitter completes with how many sitters a sitter is booked for. For example, a sitter who is booked 10 times and cancels 1 of them has a 90% Reliability Rating.
How do I see my Reliability Rating? The Reliability Rating is published each month to you as part of your monthly performance summary (the “Sitter Stackup” email).
What happens if I no-show or have too many cancellations?
Your account will be deactivated if you have:
- A no-show
- 2 or more cancellations in a 90 day period
What if I am sick twice in 90 days?
We definitely don’t want you to sit for children when you are under the weather. Contact Member Support, let them know you are sick, and they will work to find a replacement sitter. The Sitter Community team will take your situation into consideration, and make a decision on a case-by-case basis. However, if you find you are ill frequently, then our childcare platform may not be the best fit for you.
What happens if my account is deactivated?
After 30 days, you may request to have your account reinstated. To do so, send a letter to email@example.com stating why your account should be reactivated and how you intend to minimize such occurrences going forward. The Sitter Community team will review your account and make a case-by-case decision.
