Complaint >> Posted: May 06 '17 by Dennis in England, United Kingdom
Moira told us from outset this was her first au pair job
Her job was to look after 3 year old Monday to Thursdays in afternoons only , as 3year old went to nursery in mornings. Evenings/Weekends free to do what she wanted
At first everything seemed to be ok , she even enrolled and joined gym
However, started to notice some strange behaviours, similar to manic depressant
One afternoon she left the 3 year old upstairs alone , when she eventually went upstairs he had entered our ensuite bathroom turned taps and flooded our bedroom. Water leaked through the ceiling to downstairs
Continued to be very non caring with three year old, no interaction at breakfast instead constantly on phone, avoiding eye contact
This morning told us she is leaving immediately,we said at least give us 1 week notice but she left packed her bags
I would warn other families to avoid Moira. on paper and first appearances nice but has severe personalities issues, not fit to look after children, at age of 37 seems to want to do au pair job as a way to try to find what see wants to do in life
We have learnt a big lesson
