Here's my sistuation. I have been working for car dealerships for over 5 years. I am very experienced in most of the positions. I had been with volkswagen for over two years my job was very secure with paid materniity leave and all. Right before I knew I was pregnant I was offered a higher paying job at mercedes. However I started out on as a receptionist again. I am 22 and 4 1/2 months pregnant I was just passed up for the job they already trained me for before I started to show and they knew I was pregnant. This is very up setting for me because they offered it to the part time receptionist who has a very sweet smile not much between the ears. Many time I have caught and corrected mistakes in her work but since I work a job that requires two people I had no problem correcting and not reporting the flaws. Besides the job they just offered her they had already trained me for. I had no fear. Now look! I have decided that the car world is no place for a mother due to the hours are to long in the money positions to work for a mommy. Any suggestions on what type of job is a good job to have while you are pregnant. Insurance not being a problem I can have my husbands insurance pick me and the baby up. Advice anyone? I am very upset and of couse I have to maintain my professionalism receptionist and all.

You had a good job, I used to work in a call center (talk about stress) im an it/tech so I deal with stuff on the phone and in the office when problems arised I ended up on bedrest cause they thought the stress could trigger preterm birth, anyways I dont have a job to go back (long story).

There is no perfect job as long as your not on ur feet all 8 hrs not to stressed etc then you should be fine as for hours good paying jobs usually come with sacrfices im 22 and was working a fixed shift but started off with shiftwork..

Wish you luck!!

Thanks For the Replies>>>>>
I was really upset that day I felt over looked due to pregnancy. However I am so joyous to be in this state that I have learned to over look such dismay. Besides I was intrested in nothing but my career now and gladly I am in mommy mode. So as long as I can work as long as possible (considering we just bought a house and the income is good) at the receptioninst desk or not I am happy. Because ya'll are right standing on my feet all day would be alot worse. I would not last long.

Thanks!

This maybe a little late, but you could take a quick course in medical transcription and work at home (if I ever become pregnant thats what im going to do).....;)
