Jake: Hi, this is Jake Nagano at Fixit Corp. How are you today?
Salima: Oh, hi, Jake. I’m fine. How are you?
Jake: Good. The reason I’m calling is that we’d like to offer you the position you interviewed for last week.
Salima: Oh, that’s great. I was really impressed with Fixit.
Jake: I’m glad to hear it. We’re prepared to offer you a starting salary of $55,000. You will get full medical and dental coverage, and vision coverage is optional.
Salima: I see. And vacation time?
Jake: Vacation days, personal leave, and sick leave accrue one day per month in your first year, and then increase with your tenure with the company.
Salima: What would be my job title?
Jake: You’d be a junior specialist and you’d be working under Monique Stansfield, the department manager.
Salima: Is the salary negotiable at all?
Jake: Well, we would consider any counteroffers, but this is a typical compensation package for new hires in these positions.
Salima: I see.
Jake: Why don’t you think about it? I’ll need to hear back from you by Wednesday. Will that work?
Salima: Sure, no problem. Just one more thing: I heard that the company has a box at the stadium...
Jake: Let me stop you right there. I hope that’s not a deal-breaker because it’s taken me...I mean...it takes years for employees to get invited.
Salima: No, not a deal- breaker at all. I’m just a fan.
Jake: In that case, it would be a pleasure to welcome you aboard.
