This question already has an answer here:
So I just received an offer for a job and during the phone call I was asked when I could start. The company has start dates for new employees every 2 weeks. I said I should be able to start in two weeks on the next start date.
I thought that I would be able to find an apartment and move in that time, the job is 5 hours away from where I am now, but with further thought and discussing it with my parents we believe that two weeks might be cutting it close.
It's hard with my parents schedule to go out find apartments and move. During the phone call they did say that If I had trouble finding a place they could push the start date back.
I'm worried that I won't be able to start the later date since I had already signed the offer form and sent it back. The form stated that my first day was on the mutually agreed date of "such and such".
Do you think I'd be able to start later if I had already signed the offer?
