Needs of a New Mom back at work - Need understanding work environment with flexibility.
This is more of a "venting" session, but I know some of you have been in the same situation I currently am in. I am a new Mom, with a job that is "not so flexible" for the needs of my family.
I have had to leave work because my baby (currently 6months old) had had and Upper Respiratory Virus at 3 months, then currently, she contracted Rotovirus from daycare, in which I have had to miss more work. I have only been on this job as "Agent Services Contact Center Rep" for an insurance company for about 4 months, and have missed 38 hours of paid time off so far.
My Boss is getting sick of me missing work, and I feel guilty, even though I know I am doing the right thing taking care of my child. I really need to find a job, or working environment, where people understand how important me being available for my child is. I need to have benefits for me and my child, but I need an flexible working environment that pays close to what I am paying now ?
Can anyone relate ? Any ideas?
