Lady: Well Meyers. How are you holding up?

Meyers: Fine... fine... I had a very interesting topic buzzled out.

Lady: Good. Now What more can I tell you about the company or the position?

Meyers: I am Pretty clear about the job itself. But I would like to know something about the company policies.

Lady: Go Ahead. Thats what I am here for

Meyers: Great. As I told you earlier, I have been doing some work on my own. Does your company have an policy on freelancing.

Lady: Yes we do. Generally we require that our employees limit freelance work to projects unrelated to the company

Meyers: Where do you draw the line?
Lady: For example giving motivational speeches is fine on the other hand developing advertising campaigns for other companies will be unacceptable

Meyers:Okay. That makes sence. You mentioned Europe earlier. Do you have an idea of how much time I would be travelling

Lady: We are expanding in to new markets. So to begin with I would expect frequent trips to europe atleast once a month

Meyers: How long will each trip lost?

Lady: I couldnt really say until we are more deeply involved.

Meyers: I am just looking for a ballpark figure? (ballpark figure means a rough estimate)

Lady: In the beginning,as you developing new accounts I would say the trips will lost from one to two weeks.

Meyers: So I would be spending half the year travelling

Lady: Thats just starting out. I would say with in 5 or 6 months we have things set up so
that you can pull back and let your subordinates handle most of the easy travel.

Meyers: That sound fine. Could we talk about benefits for a moment?

Lady: 0fcourse. Cool beans offers a full range of health benefits as well as stock options for employees.

Meyers: Is there a pension program?

Lady: No. Not a pension per-se (Latin word meaning "in itself") but we do offer a four-oh-one K (401k) plan

Meyers: Is there any matching of contributions on the companys part?

Lady: Yes upto 5 percent(%) of your salary.

Meyers: And when do the benefits kick in?

Lady: With the exception of the 401k plan, you would be eligible, the day you start working here.

Meyers: What about the 401k?

Lady: Enrollment in that is quarterly. So you would be able to enroll with in 3 months, at the most, from the date of hire.

Meyers: Okay and finally, can you tell me about your vacation policy?

Lady: Full time employees receive 2 weeks paid vacation after the first year. After 5 years it goes upto 3 weeks

Meyers: I think that answeres most of my questions

Lady: I will have Willer get you a copy of employee manual. It outlines all the benefits and explains company policies. You can review at you leasure.

Meyers: Thank you. If other questions occur to me, may I call you?

Lady: Ofcourse. Call me anytime

Meyers: Thakyou very much for your time. Will you be getting touch with me or shall I call you

Lady: We will contact you within 2 weeks

Meyers: Fine. I will look forward to hear in from you

Lady: Thanks for coming in Meyers. I have enjoyed talking to you

Meyers: I enjoyed it too. I hope to see you again. Good bye

Lady: Goodbye
