  • what kind of job are you looking for? If it is a professional job I think you are making a BIG mistake. I would not trust an employee who started her employment so dishonestly. If you are looking for a simple blue collar job then 'what ever'. They can replace you easily enough.

    In general in all aspects of my life I feel it best not to start a relationship by being so dishonest.

  • I found seasonal work, and they told me to come back after the baby was born and they would try and get me on perm, I was due in April so that was still a 3 month gap but it was enough to be helpful.

  • I agree with the first poster. IMO not telling them, espeically at this point in your pregnancy is extremely dishonest and I wouldn't trust an employee that started their job that way. If I were an employer, I would be very upset if I hired you and didn't know you were pregnant, especially since with in the next 10-14 weeks you wont be able to do what I hired you for since you'll be on maternity leave (or just plain gone) and I'll back in the same position I'm now.
