Q Do I query the alternative Saturdays?
I have just been offered a new job and have received the employment contract. However, when I read the contract it was written that I am required to work every other Saturday. This was not mentioned to me when I was offered the job. I spoke to the manager over the phone and I asked her if it was Monday to Friday and she said yes but you could also come in on a Saturday and take a day off in leiu during the week. However, I am slightly annoyed that it states that I am required to work every other Saturday. Do I query this with her? I am concerned that I will leave a bad impression.

Doesn't hurt to ask. But if they expect you to work Saturdays, that's just the way it is. They are paying your salary, so you do what they want, when they want it. You work on their schedule. They do NOT work on yours. Cold, cruel facts of (work) life. Welcome to the real world. If you have a problem working Saturdays, then look for a different job. Problem solved.

Unless you're willing to work every other Saturday, yes bring it up. Even if she says no, it's your option, but won't change the contract, what counts is what your contract says.

You CAN, but the offer WILL NOT be changed. If you don't ACCEPT working every other Saturday, you ARE rejecting the offer you have received.
