Should I take this job?
I was looking for a new nanny job. The ad was just take care of two kids and a dog, cook them dinner. Nothing about driving or cleaning. I get there and the current nanny is pregnant, ready to pop. Parents come home and talk to me. They seem ok. Then they throw in there one kid has special needs and when I am about to go that kid also tends to eat dangerous objects. Not in the ad. Parents the gives me all kinds of personal medical info about the nanny and saying they need someone right away.

Pay is very low for special needs kid. Also parents are just not telling me everything. Even how long the other nanny will be taking maternity leave or if she is not coming back. Seems they should have started looking earlier. This kid is not going to just have someone they don’t walk in there. I suggested a few hours at first for the kid to get used to me.

Other than “it’s a job” and I can get there easily. There is no appeal to me to work there. I am waiting on another job offer that I would love.

What should I do? I don’t want to take this job and just quit when I get the job I want but somehow I am not sure I would last there either.
