Would you take this job? I'm being judgmental so I'm not sure

I work as a babysitter/nanny and am currently looking for work. On care.com there is a job opportunity for Monday and Wednesday nights from 8:30-11. All you have to do is he there when the baby sleeps. My only issue is the poster is a single dad. I would love to help out but with all the creeps in the world, I'm worried. Getting done so late at night seems risky when it's a stranger, but I feel bad for the guy as he says no one will stay. Would you take the job?

If be extremely leery, I was actually asked about a job similar to that on care.com and all my red flags started going up and just as I was about to report the guy care.com sent me an email basically telling me it was a scam.

yes. just bc hes a single dad doesn't mean hes a lunatic. bring your phone. tell a few people where you'll be, and what times and address. tell them if they don't hear from you by a certain time to call the police. but make sure not to forget to contact them...lol

You could always meet at a public place to get all the details and meet the child and dad.

This is probably what I would do, even for females.  If I ever got a bad feeling, I would say no.

I wonder why no one will stay??

No, I wouldn't personally take that job. I'm so paranoid of being murdered that I wouldn't take any kind of job on the internet that involved me going to some random stranger's home. Especially at night. Nooo wayyy.

ask if you can take a friend with you, i'd do be a bit concerned but would probably still take the job. :0)
