Au Pair Agencies & Best Drivers
Which Au Pair Agencies Recruit the Best Drivers?
From our 2010-2011 Customer Survey Results, we find that host parents are, overall,“satisfied” with their au pairs’ driving abilities with almost three-quarters of survey respondents (72%) giving favorable ratings.
This finding represents an increase in favorable ratings from 62 percent in last year’s survey. While most agencies [also] did well, not all had such positive results.
We connect you with the au pair agencies that really shine and receive top ratings on driving by their host families.
Read some of the testimonials from host parents who took our survey:
- This year’s host parent ratings of au pair driving skills are extremely low. None of the survey respondents (0%) give high satisfaction ratings. While 40% of host parents are “somewhat satisfied,” the majority (60%) say that they are “not satisfied at all.” This last rating shows a further unfavorable change from last year’s survey where 50% of host parents were “not satisfied at all.”
"We had two au pairs who had 2 accidents. Poor driving abilities and we finally switched agencies."
- Although 40% of host parents give top-ratings of “very satisfied,” the majority of ratings (60%) are either “somewhat satisfied,” (40%) or “not satisfied at all” (20%). When compared with last year’s survey, we find no increase in favorable ratings; however, there is a substantial drop in very negative ratings—“not satisfied at all”—from 50% to 20%.
"We were not happy with our au pair's driving skills, they were poor."
- Consistent with last year’s survey, a majority of host parents (69%) give high satisfaction ratings—“satisfied” or “very satisfied”—to their au pairs’ driving skills. On the other hand, approximately one-quarter of respondents (23%) are “not satisfied at all.”
"Our au pair was a very good driver."
"Well screened driver!"
- In this year’s survey, 79% of host parents give favorable ratings to their au pairs’ driving. Those who give top-ratings of “very satisfied” (64%), represent a 12-point increase from last year’s survey finding of 52% top-ratings. Only seven percent of respondents are “not satisfied at all.”
"The au pair had some trouble in the beginning, but only because she was not used to our large SUV. She did do well and is still with us for a second year."
