2. day off
WOMAN: Hello, West Bay Hotel. Can I help you?
MAN: Oh, good morning. I'm ringing about your advertisement in the Evening Gazette.
WOMAN' IS that the one for temporary(Example) staff?
MAN: That's right.
WOMAN: Yes. I'm afraid the person who's dealing with that isn't in today, but I can give you the main details if you like.
MAN: Yes please. Could you tell me what kind of staff you are looking for?
WOMAN: We're looking for waiters at the moment. There was one post for a cook, but that's already been taken. Q1
MAN: Oh right. Erm, what are the hours of work?
WOMAN: There are two different shifts - there's a day shift from 7 to 2 and a late shift from 4 till 11.
MAN: And can people choose which one they want to do?
WOMAN: Not normally, because everyone would choose the day shift I suppose. You alternate from one week to another.
MAN: Okay. I'm just writing all this down. What about time off?
WOMAN: You get one day off and I think you can negotiate which one you want, it's more or less up to you.( Q2) But it has to be the same one every week.
MAN: DO you know what the rates of pay are?
WOMAN: Yes, I've got them here. You get ￡5. 50 an hour, and that includes a break(Q3).
MAN: DO I have to go home to eat or. . .
WOMAN: You don't have to. You can get a meal in the hotel(Q4) if you want to, and there's no charge for it so you might as well.
