I was firstly informed by the employer that they don’t need me to work in the shop anymore, and then received an offer from the same firm to work in the back office, as a full time, in a junior position.
The hr describes the job duties and the package. I think the job nature is seemed manageable to me. But I am uncertain if I can maintain my attendance and job performance for long enough. It would be 5.5 to 6 days work week. At least 9 hours every day. It takes more than one hour of transport to the workplace. Previously, I have been working 5 hours of work on a 6 days per week. I have some weeks working 9 hours a day.
The salary is not much. The hourly rate is about the same as the previous part time. It would be a bit low, even for someone with lower qualifications. But I don’t need to go through interview and selection again. And my last full time job has been 4 years ago. My best friend suggests that I negotiate on the salary. Everybody else want me to just take it.
I probably should give it a try. At least I would find out if I can manage a full time job. It would be hard work for me and stretch on my abilities. If I negotiate with them and get an adjustment successfully, I think it won’t be more than a 100 a month.
So, what would be your suggestions? To take it or not? To negotiate or not?
Any ideas you want to share with me?
