So, recently, I got an offer from a company. The offer sounded great. The package was good benefits were great, insurance, bachelor savings and all. But, all of this was done through a phone call. I asked for details of the offer, to which the HR replied that she would send the necessary details on email , while the rest of the details, including the salary structure will be given, on the day of joining. Here is a copy of the mail that I received from them (company name is removed for secrecy).
Dear Mr. <Me>,

<Company details and address>
When I ask for details of joining, like if there would be any bond, and, the details of notice period, and other pre-requisites before the joining date, she said that there would be no bond, but the other details can only be shared on the date of joining, not a day before.
Also, the exact amount of salary and all deductions were informed to me by the phone call. Upon asking for an offical mail, regarding the amount of salary and breakdown, they said that those details too, will be shared while joining the company.
I was expecting a PDF detailing the pre-requisites and the salary breakdown, with the exact amount of salary, the responsibilities and all.
I just have 1 year of experience, and this is my first interview with a company. Should I consider joining ?
P.S - The salary hike is 35%, and insurance is extra
Update :- I got a call from them today (3 days after posting this question), where they wanted me to update them on every alternate weekend, after I had handed over my resignation in my current company. They wanted updates like, if I was assigned with a new team. I didn't completely understand what was going on.
Should I ask them for a written offer letter, otherwise, I wont join, or just say no to them ?
