Re: Working and appointments - October 3rd 2021, 09:48 PM

I would discuss this with any potential employer after you've gotten hired. Let them know "I have X and Y appointments already scheduled on A and B dates." immediately so they are aware. Some employers might not be so keen on allowing you on taking that time off; but a lot would be willing to knowing that you're not going to be off doing useless stuff. They might ask you to work extra hours on one day or fill in on a shift you normally wouldn't work, etc.

As for the appointments that haven't been scheduled but will be after you've gotten a job, do what you can to work around your schedule but it'll not always work. As always, let your employer know as soon as possible so they can prepare well far enough in advance.

Also, a lot of places will give you more time off the longer you work there. So after two years, for example, you might have ten days paid time off. When this happens, then it'll be easier to work your doctor appointments around these days off.
