SPEAK WITH BECKY
SPEAK WITH CARL
Play / pause
Becky: Well Carl, do you have any more questions?
Carl: What time do I start work?
Becky: Our office opens at 8 AM. Can you start at 8?
Carl: I'm a single dad. I need to take my son to school by 8 AM. Would I be able to start at 9?
Becky: 9 AM is a little late for our company. This may be a problem.
Carl: Please consider my situation. It's hard to be a single dad and have a career.
Becky: Carl, I completely understand. I'm a single parent too.
Carl: You are?
Becky: Yes. So I will discuss it with the other managers and ask them to let you start at 9 AM.
Carl: Thank you so much! I look forward to hearing from you.
