Woman With Two Jobs Reveals How Each Boss Reacted When She Needed Time Off Work To Care Of Dying Sister

“Your employees are so much more than robots here to make YOU money.”

Hillary Zinks has two jobs! She’s a makeup and effects artist in the film industry. Also, she’s a waitress at a local resort. While on set, Hillary got a call that her sister had been declared brain dead in November. She was unresponsive, and the nurses had called Hillary [her next of kin] to decide on her behalf if need be. 

Hillary Zinks shared how her two bosses reacted after taking time off work because her sister was dying.

At the time, Hillary was broken-hearted, frozen. She didn’t even have time to digest everything she was told before deciding to leave to be with her sister. And just when she told her first boss, the department head of the TV series she was working on, that she needed to leave, she was treated with basic human empathy. 

She’s a makeup and effects artist in the film industry. Also, she’s a waitress at a local resort.

Hillary had received a nightmarish phone call that her sister had been hospitalized and brain dead.

She told BuzzFeed: “She [her first boss] is very well known and HUGE in industry. To have someone with her experience in film and life tell me to ‘never let a job get in the way of life and ‘do whatever I need to do was exactly what I needed to hear. She made me feel like a human being and not just a workhorse.”

So without holding back, she immediately drove to Las Vegas to be by her sister’s bedside.

But just as she notified her supervisor at the restaurant she wouldn’t be at her next shift, she got chastised.

“There were no questions asked concept concern and curiosity about the situation. Sometimes jobs make you feel one-dimensional as if you’re only put on this earth to work for them. She saw me as a complete human with a life and family just as complex as her own. I felt understood, appreciated, and cared for.” However, this wasn’t the case when she told her SECOND BOSS.

NO JOB IS WORTH important moments in your life.

The supervisor told Hillary her fellow employees would have a tough shift because she was unavailable.

When Hillary told her other boss why she shouldn’t make it to work, she was disheartened. Her boss was so upset at the late notice, which automatically made her feel guilty about missing work because they had a large party to serve that day. She added: “I was angry and upset about it the rest of the drive.”

Furious, Hillary quit her and even sent the supervisor a photo of her unconscious sister’s middle finger.

Soon after, she learned from the senior manager that the supervisor was no longer employed there.

“The closer I got to the hospital, the more I realized how her behavior was unacceptable, and I couldn’t work under her any longer.” When Hillary got to the hospital, she officially QUIT. She decided to share her story on TikTok to show the difference between a boss and a leader. She advised that people don’t need to work for people who barely see them as a human with emotions and families. She urged anyone with her type of experience to quit. 

The response from her boss at the TV show was exactly what she had hoped for. 

“Hillary, please go home, do whatever you need to do, be with your family, be with your mom, whatever you can — there is no job in this world worth missing life over,” these were the words of her first BOSS.

She also gave one final message to employers: “Your employees are so much more than robots here to make YOU money. Real-life doesn’t stop, so people’s work lives can proceed uninterrupted. Treat your employees with kindness and compassion in situations like these.” Unfortunately, her sister passed away, but as a hero, donating four of her organs and a new supervisor at the resort where she worked offered her a job again. 

However, Her sister Amber ultimately passed away. She was an organ donor, and Hillary said she died a hero.
