So fed up!

Its long. Its a rant. But how to I change my mind, and un-do a commitment I felt pressured into. I am seriously thinking of working at McD's and not my AM fam!!!!

Crazy Non-Interview

A single parent requested an interview with me. She wanted to meet me at Starbucks 40 minutes from my house. She requested we meet at 10:00. I arrived 5 minutes early, got a coffee and texted her I was there. I waited until 10 after and told her what I was wearing and where I was sitting. Both texts got no response. I waited until 20 after and since I received no texts or phone calls (she had my number I did not have hers) I decided to leave. Before I left I sent one more text stating I was leaving and had never been stood up on an interview before.

I can't wait to quit.

So - this is kind of a rant. I have two part time care-giving jobs right now. I am working again part-time for a family I used to nanny full time for. I've wrote about this before, the mom has a PhD and works at a college as an assistant professor.

She lacks organization, the ability to arrive on time to relieve me, and remembering to PAY ME.

Unemployed & Searching

I have been unemployed since Aug 2014 when my family of 4 years moved away. Now trying to figure out how to get back into looking for work. Expectations for most jobs I've seen are silly in reference to the pay. Also, I guess I was really lucky as this was the first family I worked for but they were honest to a fault we had nothing in writing but they kept with every aspect of everything they offered 4 weeks vacation a year paid, sick days & what was expected of me, etc. I have no idea what route to take to create a "contact " as I keep hearing so many nannies here referring to.

So frustrated

So I recently posted about the awful situation I was in at my pprevious position. Thankfully I have since left the job, but now I'm left with another problem: I CANNOT FIND AN OTHER POSITION!

There are so few opportunities in my area. I have tried care.com, Craigslist, and a few other sites. There is one nanny agency in my area, but I haven't had a chance to get in touch with them and they are on hiatus for the month.

Bad day

I've never been more stressed and emotional about a family before!

I love the family I work for. So MUCH! The children are the sweetest things ever. I don't think I have ever met kids so sweet! They are my BEST friends.. When they told me they won't pay me overtime I still stayed(even though this is illegal as an hourly employee). A year later when one parent decided to go part time I still stayed with them. Took 8 weeks to get a proper part time pay I could afford, but I still pushed through it.
