Hey, I recently started a nanny position on a trial basis (3 weeks and 3 days a week) the job sounded great. I did one day and liked the job, and I've been there 2 days. On the second day I got to meet the outgoing nanny which went well, but as I asked her questions about the job, I got slightly uneasy. She did not have a nanny agreement, does all the family laundry despite the fact they have a cleaning service, and cooks elaborate meals for the family.
I am going to meet with the mom soon, for more about the job requirements, but the lack of a nanny agreement concerns me, and that they may take advantage of me at this job. The outgoing nanny seems to have enjoyed the job but I can't shake the uneasy feeling that the job is not a good fit for me. Apart from talking to the parents more, are there any suggestions anyone has for me? I have been in situations in the past where I took a job just because I needed one so bad that I ignored warning signs and regretted it later. Sorry for the rambling but it has been upsetting me and I wanted fellow nannies advice on the job as I do not have any close friends who are nannies. Thanks very much.
