The Office ‐ Interview Skills 8 ‐ Discussing Salary and Benefits (C0256)
Mr. Parsons: Okay, well I’m sure you have a number of questions to ask me regarding the position.
Rebecca: Yes, well Miss Childs did give me an overview of the position over the phone, but there were some details I’d like to clarify.
Mr. Parsons: Well feel free to ask me anything, and I’ll try to fill in the details.
Rebecca: Could I first ask about the remuneration package ?
Mr. Parsons: Yes of course. That’s quite an important point isn’t it? As a junior sub editor we offer a starting salary of 150,000 HK dollars per annum. This doesn’t include a generous housing allowance also.
Rebecca: I understand. And are there other bonuses included?
Mr. Parsons: Well apart from full health insurance we do offer a company staff bonus scheme linked to readership numbers. But we could go through all the details of that at a later date.
Rebecca: Well Mr. Parsons, I am flexible when it comes to salary. The opportunity to work in Hong Kong for you is the most important thing for me.
Mr. Parsons: Excellent. Well, what other questions do you have Rebecca?
