  • well I worked at a gas station that's not at all safe, but I'd suggest something like a desk job, or something where you don't have to stand all day.

  • If you find an answer let me know, because I'm just about five months pregnant and working 60 hours a week as a line cook in a very busy kitchen is really starting to drain me. Good luck with your search.

  • Desk jobs are the best. I worked as a telemarketer. Try looking at dr/dentist offices, insurance co.'s, etc. Good luck!

  • telemarketing, receptionist, data entry. any job where you sit all day but you can get up and walk around, eat, go to the bathroom. hope you find something soon. if none of those are available, how about a maternity clothing store? you can model the clothes while you work?

  • I was in the same boat you are. I found a job as an office manager... which is easy work. I am more of a receptionist than anything else!! I can put my feet up when needed. so my suggestion would be in an office or hotel desk receptionist!

  • What about a maternity store? Or a bank teller?

  • Starbucks is a good place to work...and you get health and dental with 20 hrs/wk....I love working there. I work for myself now (I'm a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant) and I will never go back to working for someone else. My perks and income are too good :)
