Here is the background. About a year ago I applied with a company and had a couple interviews. My circumstances changed and I informed them I wasn't able to work for them anymore. Recently, my circumstances changed again so I emailed asking if they're still interested in me working.
Several emails were exchanged and a short phone call was made, but almost all of it was filling out forms and almost nothing about the job itself. Since it's been a year and I no longer have the job posting, I actually would like reminder of what the job entails in specific?
I was under the impression I would have another interview, but suddenly got a 'job offer' (actually it reads more like 'you start work this Monday') This job is part time and I told them I would be working another job so would have to schedule accordingly. So far they haven't given me specifics as to the work schedule.
How can I phrase the email asking for details?
I was under the impression we would have another interview but am glad to have received the offer letter. As discussed, I have other work and not sure if I'm able to come into the office on Monday. May I ask what times and what days works is? Also are the shifts static or change and if so how often? Are the hours worked in a week the same across all weeks or do they vary?
The document they sent me appears to be (what they consider) an official offer letter. It contains
- the start date
- remuneration information
- the pay schedule
- the fact I work part time
- legal stuff involving termination and probation period etc.
What I need to know is details regarding the part time and the hours worked. The first sentence of the email is "welcome aboard, you start Monday. Please fill out the paper work." I find this abrupt as I was really under the impression there would be another interview and (depending on the time) I'm not available Monday.
