Do you think I have been hired for this job?

Postby Phatferd » Mon Oct 02, 2006 4:14 pm

Well I think I have a new job. I was told to download w-4 information and have scheduled training days, but I was never told how much I'll be making or that I was hired. I am assuming I am hired if they want me to do all the filling out of w-4s and schedule training.

It is a telecommunication job for my school. I will call alumni and parents to inform them of events and ask for donations.

I want to know so I can give 2 weeks to my current job. Would it look bad to call back and ask if I have been hired to give my 2 weeks to my other job or should I wait until tomorrow (I have to go down and pick up a pre-training packet) and talk to them about it?

That's what I would do. Then ask them to confirm your start date.

I'd doublecheck how much you'll be making and when they expect you to start before giving notice at your current job.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Make sure you get a writen copy of how much you will be making BEFORE you give your 2 weeks.

I called the guy back, but got his voicemail.

As I was filling out the documents he told me to download off their website I noticed all the different things I was filling out. One was a document called, "Conditions of Employment Form (Required of New Hire)" and an Employee Verification form which is basically saying I am a legal US resident. Another document was this thing saying I would agree to follow all laws of the state of Arizona since I will be working for a government department (ASU). This is along with my W-4.

I had to call my current work to tell them I need off 3 days next week (for training of the new job) and they knew something was up and asked me why I needed 3 random days off and I just told them I have a bunch of tests next week at school and have study groups...
