I’ve been working part-time at my current workplace for about a year now and my boss has thoughts of converting me to a full-timer.
I’m not trying to be picky but I think the terms are really unattractive? As a part-timer, I work only 3-4 days a week and I get paid $10 per hour. That works up to about $800 a month? If I work OT and take the pub hol shifts, I’ll get paid a lot more and apart from my own work, I’m not obliged to care about anything else.
As a full-timer, I’m not entitled to any extra pay if I work past hours and I’ll definitely be assigned more things to do. My boss is offering me $1600 a month inclusive of CPF and I have to work 6 days a week. Off days can only be on weekdays and not weekends and the shifts are longer. Leave wise, I’ll get about 10 days for the first year but with each year of service, this will increase by 1 until it caps at 14.
If I continue with my part-time stint, although the money is lesser, the schedule is flexible and I have more leeway to take up other jobs or free lance work to earn more.
If I take up this full-time offer, I don’t think I’ll even have time to rest still want to find more work?! I think the decision is quite clear but now I’m just afraid that if I don’t take up my boss’ ‘kind offer’, I won’t even have a part-time job to go to…
Here are what netizens think:
- Your boss also know how to do math, just decline politely and tell him you prefer the freedom.
- Or you can tell your boss to offer you a much higher full time salary and other benefits if not it will not be worth it.
- Boss like that one, they can save how much they save how much.
