I am not really sure where this is supposed to go so I figured I'd stick it here.
I had a job interview back in November, before I actually knew I was pregnant. They called at the end of that week and told me the position was essentially mine however, they couldn't formally offer it to me until January due to this being their "slow season".
I called them today, just checking on the position and it is still 100 % mine, however they are not finished with their "hiring freeze" yet. She said she was going to let the higher ups know I called and am still interested and see if that doesn't get them moving.
Here's the question. I haven't told them I am pregnant (almost 18 weeks)...when do I tell them? I kinda figured I'd wait until they formally offered me the position, accept and then tell them. But does that seem a little dishonest? They can't NOT hire me because I am pregnant, but they can not offer me the job. If they do offer me the job and I accept they then can't take it away because I am pregnant. I feel like this is quite a dilemma.
I am not sure how to approach this topic with them. I am due June 11 2012, so I would HAVE to take at least the 6 weeks off then, and I fully intend to come back to work and work all the way up until I go into labor.
I just don't want them to feel like I am a dishonest person.
Your not on the job yet even tho you are supposedly hired. IMO,I would wait until I had the job for sure and I'm pretty sure the time you start working they will tell you are and just say Yes if they ask.
