I know many women who tried to get jobs while pregnant, had an interview, and was never contacted after. It's illegal but it still happens. It'll probably be very hard to get another job bc they'll have to have a substitute for you while you're off. I don't know if you can get short term disability at a new job. And also if you are allowed any sick days or paid vacation days at McDonald's that you have accumulated could be used toward your maternity leave.
Work at mcds until after the baby is born. No sense I'm quitting now. You'll shoot yourself in the foot otherwise.
I agree with the previous poster. Keep your McDonalds job for now. It'll be very hard for you to find another one and pretty stressful if you do. Most jobs won't give you maternity leave unless you've been there for a certain amount of time too, so if you do get another job be sure to ask about that
Most jobs require a year of employment before you can get maternity leave. I would stay and look for work afterward. Good luck.
Oh thank u guys i think u been here four years now and i got to comfortable but i do plan to look for work once i get healed and get another job too cauze being a single mom will b hard and i believe i should have some disability.
I'm in the same situation I been out of work for 3 weeks and I'm looking for a job as well I just can't take it..not working is horrible and I'm 21 weeks I just don't kno what to do..
Nothing like having a baby to motivate you to do better in life. Max out your leave when u have the baby. Hopefully you can find a better job before u go back to work.
