I had a different experience, yet similar outcome. It's a good idea to invite your poor au pair candidate to stay on a visitor's visa. I'm going to do the same.

Wow I can't believe that a person would do that. When I turn 18, I want to be involved in the au pair experience but I would never treat a family like this and be so selfish. ...

Tried this agency when looking to host our 5th au pair. Despite careful interviewing (which you do on your own), the au pair we chose ended up being mediocre at responsibilities. She decided to leave, told a number of lies to the agency. They terminated us from the...

Au Pair agency does not have a cluster in Knoxville Tennessee, as a matter of fact Au Pair In America does not have any representative in Tennessee so this post is a lie.

The au pair that we were matched with was NOT infant qualified (did not know anything about caring for a baby and had no common sense as a care taker despite 3 full weeks of training by us -- didn't know that you need to support a baby's head, never bathed a baby,...

Community counselors who work for APIA are expected to be on call 24/7 in case of an emergency with a host family and/or au pair. Most calls beyond normal business hours are non- emergencies, however the culture of "exceptional customer service" creates an environment...
