Vending Happy!

San Francisco Bay Area Vending Machines was at the top of our list of phone calls to make in renting a vending machine for our office, though it was largely because it came first in the alphabetical list of eight other companies. But I’m glad we called them first because they had a great selection and excellent customer service, especially better than what we had before.

What I liked about Bay Area Vending Machines is that they were really available and helpful over the phone, unlike the other company we had used previously. It seemed that whenever we ran out of snacks, we couldn’t get them to call us back and we were often frustrated about that.

Instead, Bay Area Vending Machines was really helpful and called us back right away even when we just had one or two questions for them. They also were wiling to spend a lot of time figuring out a pricing plan that was best for us. Our old company left it solely for us to decide.

Another thing I liked about Bay Area Vending Machines was that they have a great selection of snacks from healthy to more traditional snacks that you normally see in a vending machine. I was pretty excited that they had a variety of options to choose from that everyone would be happy about. Not everyone was excited about getting another vending machine—they didn’t think it would be healthy at all.

But because Bay Area Vending Machines provided a lot of options, even the naysayers in the office were happy to be getting vending machines full of alternative options like granola bars and low calorie snacks instead of high calories, salt and sugar laden snack foods.

With Bay Area Vending Machines, everyone is happy, both management and employees.

Hiring a Nanny in San Francisco

Living in San Francisco, it is hard to find a nanny who is both experienced and qualified on your own. That’s why I entrusted the job of finding a San Francisco nanny to A Nanny on the Net.

A friend of mine had worked with A Nanny on the Net recently when she was looking for a nanny for her twin daughters and was extremely happy with her nanny.  I didn’t want to hire anyone that wasn’t vetted and screened by an absolute professional.

Although I trusted my friend enough to hire A Nanny on the Net without performing any additional research, I also looked at their website to see what they were all about. I really liked what I saw because it seemed that they were really selective in the nannies they matched with nannies.

They also put a lot of stress on the fact that they only hire nannies who are career nannies and have extensive training and experience. I was pretty glad to know that there were also multiple levels so I could potentially have a nanny who had a degree or even a teacher’s credential.

I was really impressed that A Nanny on the Net also has extensive experience (20 years) in hiring nannies for families. With that much experience, I imagine that they would be pretty good at hiring the right nanny for the job.

After using A Nanny on the Net to hire my San Francisco nanny, I was really pleased with the nanny who was placed with us. She is friendly, smart and great with my son. I couldn’t imagine entrusting anyone else with my child!
