Q: Should I go work there?

I went to an interview today, the boss liked me and offered me the job immediately. I request 10000rmb to start with, he didn't say anything about my salary request, but he said he will discuss remuneration with me once I confirmed to work for him. He asked me to confirm him in two days.

 

It's an international sales manager job to lead the sales team. 

 

But i found there's a plate outside of the building has my previous company's  name written on. I guess maybe my  previous company which fired me has set up the laboratory in the same building.

 

So I worry that I will meet my old boss or colleagues if I go work there. I worry they will say something bad to my current employer. Should I go work there? Any advice?

Isn't it pretty simple?

 

If you want the job - take it.

 

If he offers a lower salary that's unacceptable - don't take it.

Definitely take it.  You need income.  Time to quit worrying about the why's, wherefore's and maybe's and take an employment offer.

Just do it, if they cause trouble... then deal with it later. 

 

If you like the job and it seems like a good opportunity, you can't let anything stop you. You don't owe them anything... You need money to live and eat right?

Why would they say something bad? Did you get fired or leave on bad terms?

 

You're worrying too much.

I just got employed by this boss, he'll pay me 8000rmb in probation and 10000rmb+insurances after probation. Free working lunch.

 

The boss is a horrible person, I heard him callling his other employees bad name on the phone and constantly said fuck. Lol

 

I took this job mainly for money and the position to look good on CV.

 

But that's a super nice salary for Chinese. Since the payment is high, the chance of losing job will be high too. I'll have to take a gambline during the 3 monthes probation.

Seriously, Vicky, the only chance you have to get married with your laowai prince is to trick him and get pregnant, but make sure first to have a phot of his passport  and know exactly where he works. 

Dont need to thank me, just shut your f up for a month. I'm tired to see this non-questions.

A:That would be an awful experience. I would call your embassy asap, they might be able to suggest something or give you a temporary replacement or something. I'm sure they would have seen this before.You may also need something from the PSB to say that you still have a valid visa in order to leave the country. Do you at least have a copy of your visa and passport front page, or can you get one?  If you have been working here your employer would probably have copies. In the mean time, turn the place upside down trying to find your passport.Good luck mate.   -- Stiggs
