New Job! - June 25th 2009, 12:45 AM

So I started a new job on Tuesday. I actually just started training today. I am just a cashier and they put me in the Diesel Fuel part of the company. Well, I like it just fine for now, but of course I have only worked there one day.

There is a lot to learn and it kind of intimidates me. They handle a TON of money everyday and one mistake could cost the store hundreds of dollars. Would that freak you out a little? I would hate to be accountable for hundreds of dollars ..

Anyhow, another issue I have is that I am pregnant. It is not noticeable as of now, but I just don't know when to tell them that I am pregnant ... and do I have to legally tell them by a certain time??

I handle lots of cash eventually you get use to it don't worry about the cash as long as you are being trained and not doing anything wrong you will be ok.. About being pregnant I would tell them ASAP just because if something happens to you they know that you are pregnant. I don't think you legally have to tell them and more than likely they will find out in time. Just for your safety though I would tell them as possible

It's good to see that you like your current job, even though you haven't been working there very long. Too many people dislike their jobs nowadays. It's nice to finally see someone who is enjoying their job. I love my job too, so yay us.

In terms of handling a lot of cash, be confident with yourself. They obviously hired you because they felt that you would be able to handle it. Don't think about making a mistake because if you think about it too much, the chances are that you're going to make a stupid mistake.

They wouldn't have hired you if they felt that you didn't know what you were doing. Take that and develop confidence in yourself. I know it's not easy and it may be a bit intimidating at first but I'm sure you'll get the hang of it in no time. [:

Congratulations on being pregnant, by the way. I doubt that you legally need to tell your work about your pregnancy by a certain time. Besides, they'll find out soon enough anyway.

Good luck with your new job and your pregnancy.


SUP BRO.

I think it's actually kind of smart that you didn't inform them that you were pregnant right away. A lot of times (though they'll deny it) companies won't hire a person if they're pregnant, due to the time off they'll need.

Though now that you're hired, legally they're not allowed to do anything about your pregnancy. If they fire you when they find out, find yourself a lawyer.

I would wait until you're situated in your job a little more before spilling the beans. Jobs are hard to come by right now.

But you aren't required to tell them anything at all if you don't want to. However, you may be required to tell them by a certain date if you want maternity leave and so forth. If you have a policy book, I would read through it.

That is exactly why I did not tell them. I knew they would not hire me and did not have to give me an honest reason for why .. even though we would all know it as because I wa pregnant. I do want to take time off when the baby gets here so that is why I need to tell them. I will look through my policy book, most definitely.

Thanks everyone for the responses!! They were very helpful.
