Part A :

Hello, Marina Restaurant and Reception Rooms, how can l help you?

I'm ringing about the advertisement I saw on the Internet.

Uh, you were advertising for casual staff?

Yes, that' s right. Just a moment, I' II put you through to the manager ...

sound of phone ring

I'm sorry, there 's no answer on her line.

Perhaps I can help you with some of the details and you could talk to her later.

Yeah, that' d be good.

First of all, can you tell me what jobs are available?

Well, we advertised for an assistant cook, a kitchen hand and a cleaner but the cook and the cleaner's positions have been filled already ...

Not to worry, I'm not qualified to cook anyway.

I can barely make toast.

Well, we still have the kitchen hand job available.

Do you have any experience?

No, I haven' t worked as a kitchen hand before - what would I have to do?

Mainly dishes - lots of dishwashing - and anything the chef tells you to do while he's preparing the meals.

We get pretty busy, so you'd have to be able to deal with some pressure,

and there's a fair bit of noise and shouting sometimes too.

You'd be responsible for making salads and other cold platters.

I could do that. How many shifts would I have to work every week?

A minimum of two and a maximum of five - we' re open seven days a week,

and our casual staff are usually asked to do a lot of weekend shifts.

You probably won't have to do many Mondays or Tuesdays,

but you'll have to be able to work on Friday nights - that's our biggest day of the week.

Mmm, there goes my social life.


Nothing. I was wondering what the pay is like.

It's very good really.

The youth rate is $15 an hour ...

Oh, I didn't ask - how old are you?


Well, that's an even better rate - over 18 we pay $18.50 an hour - and that includes a meal if you work a five - hour shift.

I like the sound of that. What time is the meal break?

It' s very early - before you actually start work -at 5 o'clock.

Oh£¬and I should tell you,

if you are even 5 minutes late, you won't get any dinner at all.

The chef is very strict about that.

You need to start your meal at five because you have to begin work promptly at 5.30 p.m.

I' II be sure to get there before five then I'm always starving in the afternoon and I don' t mind early I eat dinner.

Part B :

Aah, I have a question - would I need to wear a uniform of some sort?

Not as such ...

but you' ll need a good strong pair of shoes,

not sneakers (that' s in case you drop something on your foot),

a clean shirt and trousers ...

and the restaurant provides you with a long white apron and a cap.

When can I start?

Not so fast - you' II have to formally apply to the manager first - but I can tell you that the position becomes available on Monday,

the 14th of November - that' s when we really start to get busy - in the lead up to Christmas and the holiday season.

When can I see the manager?

Umm, let me see, I have her diary here ...

What about tomorrow at 11 a.m.?

Not really, not unless I skip class - is there something later in the day?

4.30 p.m.?

Would that do?

Yeah, great, so that' s 4.30 tomorrow,

Thursday, with ... uh, what' s her name?

Oh, the manager, yes ...

her name is Lola Barrie.

Just a minute, while I write that down ...B-A-double-R-Y?

There's no 'Y' ... It's B-A-R-R-I-E.

Lola Barrie.

I've got it now.


You've got her name but l haven't got yours!

Jack Lee -that's L-E-E.

Thanks, Jack. When you come to meet with Ms Barrie tomorrow,

bear in mind that she'll want to know all about your work history to have so you'll need your CV.

If you have one, we'd really like to see a reference as well,

so bring that with you, if you can.

If you haven't got one, then we'll need a referee's name and a phone number instead.

Oh, and one more thing...

What's that?

She'll probably ask you about your eligibility to work in this country so bring your passport and, if you have one, your tax number.

Thank you, you've been really helpful.

Will I see you tomorrow?

Yes, come straight through the front door and you'll see me at Reception.

Ms Barrie will meet you there.

Great. Till tomorrow then...
