She works two jobs, one at a nursery and another as a housekeeper/sitter for a family. She has it in her head that she will be fired soon from the second job as she doesn't think she is appreciated or really needed anymore. Her boss texted her and asked what the situation was with her first job as she could see the nursery boarded up (It is having maintenance done on it but sister is still working there in another part of the building. ) The text said "I can see the nursery has been boarded up, how does this affect your job?" This has then led to my sister feeling majorily worried that this is her bosses way of getting rid of her. I told her she is being unreasonable and the text was no doubt just out of curiosity but she thinks different.
No one can second guess what your sisters 2nd employer may or may not be thinking. I'd suggest she asks him instead of worrying herself into a frenzy over a question, which may mean (a) he wants her to do extra hours (b) he's just very nosey (c) he's thinking about letting her go but now feels guilty incase shes consigned to complete unemployment.
Years ago I employed a nanny for 2 days a week. She had another job for the other 3 days. Her other job changed a number of times over the 4 1/2 years I employed her and I lived in constant fear of her taking on a single full time role each time her other role changed. Fortunately she always found new employment to fit around her hours with me.
Maybe her employer is just worried that the nursery job has ended and wondering if this will impact on her hours if your sister gets a new job.
i agree, sounds like they are wanting her for more hours or very much want to keep her but are worried that she is taking on a new job which means that she might not be able to keep her hours with them. i would feel quite wanted!!! maybe tell your sister about how people reacted on this thread. the opinion of many may calm her
I'm struggling to understand how she can infer that she might get sacked from second job, because boss called her to ask a question about the nursery being boarded up...? So yes, I think she is worrying unnecessarily.
