    I worked at Au Pair in America full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You get to meet great people from all parts of the world

    Cons

    Sometimes counselors do not do their job right and you have to figure out how to solve problems yourself. I believe the company does not check on them frequently as they should

    Cons

    Payment is low; there is littlw suppervision about what types of work a family ask the au pair to do.

    Former Employee - Community Counselor in West Lebanon, NH
    Recommends

    I worked at Au Pair in America full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The community of counselors combined with the freedom to build your own schedule was the best. Connecting with au pairs, local families, and community members as well as traveling to training meetings was also great.

    Cons

    1099 and tax rates and figuring that out on your own as a self-employed individual. Some training materials weren't online and made implementation of the work not as efficient. Some training and rewards weren't available for certain counselors (like in my region) which was a bit of a draw-back. We tried to advocate for creating an alternative system, but it took too long and still hasn't been implemented.
