    Default Job Interview

    Afternoon all.

    I have a tricky question that I need some opinions on.
    This coming Monday I have a job interview at the one in only macca d's, which is fantastic after months of looking for work! Problem is I will be 10 weeks pregnant at the time.
    Do I be honest and tell them at the interview like a good person, or lie and tell them after a few months?
    To be completely honest, I don't really want to be working in a fast food restaurant, especially while pregnant, but don't have any qualifications for anything else and also need some easy pocket money....

    Thanks a lot!

    For a maccas job, nope, I wouldn't tell them at the interview. Is this a casual job? If so, even less chance I'd tell them, personally. I'd wait several weeks. This is because I would be regarding it as a fill in job to pass the time and pay the bills.

    I interviewed for some temp work when I was 10 weeks pregnant with my first- didn't tell them since it was only going to be short-term, but I ended up working until a month before I was due.
    I would see how the interview goes-you don't want to give them a reason to NOT hire you! And you might help them out over their busy holiday season. However, if you get the job, I'd say honesty is the best policy- tell them before they work it out themselves

    I wouldn't tell them at the interview, maybe in a few weeks if you get the job. Also if you get the job maybe get a larger uniform to start with so that it gives you room to grow and a little longer to keep it quiet.

    Thanks ladies! Sounds like a good plan to just wait.
