I gave my boss at my seasonal job as a reference at my interview today. I didnt ask him knowing he would say yes. I forgot to mention it today as we were unloading the truck, and busy. He came back later, and was super nice to me (not that hes not nice usually). He kept bringing up he will give me more hours, but I get enough hours with him, they are tiring as well (hard labour). I want a change but I will still work with him, and the same amount of hours. But come September or October he cant offer me any hours, and it's not his fault thats how the business goes.

I think that it would be good to let him know that you aren't looking to quit working for him, but you are looking for something that you will be able to do in some of your spare time and also something that will be able to tide you over during the months when his business is something that is not operating at that time of the year. If you do this, it is a sure way to make sure that you are not burning any bridges in your work future.

well, all you can do is explain to him what your plans are and hope for the best.

He might think that you are leaving so you need to tell him that you are not.Since no job on September and October, you could use that two months to work at somewhere else. He is a good boss right? Tell him that you still want to work with him.(^^)

You probably need to let him know your intentions, just so he does not get all nervous.

I think you should let him know you are going to stay with him, you just need more hours somewhere else for when it's downtime at the farm. That way he doesn't think you are leaving leaving, just that you are getting more hours in your own free time.
