We’re looking for a manager to run the new branch office.
Where is the branch office?
It happens to be very close to your home. We were actually hoping that you might want to fill the position.
I’d have to think about it. How many people would I be managing?
It will start off small, with only about 10 employees.
That is quite small.
Are you interested?
I guess. I do like the office I’m working in now, but it would be nice to work closer to my home.
Your salary would remain the same, but if you do a good job, I think there’s a possibility of a promotion down the road.
Yes. The reason we chose you is because you’re the best manager we have. We need someone who can organize the new office and make it run well.
So this isn’t a demotion?
Oh, no, it’s quite the opposite!
Well then, when should I start?
So you’ll do it?
Great! We’ll send some people over to move your things tomorrow. You can have a long weekend and then start at your new office on Monday.
