Nanny Interviewing Tips

1. Develop a list of questions to ask every applicant. This will help you maintain a uniform evaluation.


2. Require all applicants to bring a resume or employment history for the last five to 15 years (depending on their age).


3. The interview process should consist of at least two (preferably three) interviews:

-The first should not include the children and should involve covering the bulk of your questions.

-The second interview should be at your home with all family members present.


4. If you are still interested in the applicant, running a background check is the next step. If she hesitates or says no, you should rule her out as a potential candidate.
