Is it a requirement that all candidates have met at the agency offices prior to being approved for the registry?

Although there are numerous agencies that do not even require face-to-face interviews, Nannies On The Go feels this is a vital part of the consideration process. We have met and fully screened all applicants in person prior to sending them to your family to be interviewed.

Is it a standard policy that your agency requires all candidates pass a background check prior to being hired? Are drug tests available?

Each and every candidate is required to submit to a Criminal Background check, Social Security check, Driving Record screen and a Sex Offender check. If requested, there is also a 10 panel drug screen administered through Lab Corp to get to the next step of security. There are never any exceptions to the safety of the Nannies On The Go Children and families.

Yes, which is why we conduct a Social Security check in addition to the other background screenings.
