SUSAN: Mary?
MARY: Hi.
SUSAN: Hello. I'm Susan Thompson, Human Resources Manager.
MARY: Hi. I'm Mary Hansen, and I'm applying for one of your kitchen jobs.
SUSAN: Great.
MARY: Here's a copy of my resume.
SUSAN: Great. Have a seat, Mary.
MARY: Thank you.
SUSAN: Mary, do you have any experience working in the kitchen?
MARY: No, but I want to learn. I work hard and I cook a lot at home.
SUSAN: Okay, well, tell me about yourself.
MARY: Well, I love to learn new things. I'm very organized, and I follow directions exactly. Uh, that's
why my boss at my last job made me a trainer, and the company actually gave me a special
certificate for coming to work on time every day for a year. And I'm taking an English class to
improve my writing skills.
SUSAN: That's great. Why did you leave your last job?
MARY: It was graveyard, and I need to work days.
SUSAN: I see. Well, what hours can you work?
MARY: Um, from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.
SUSAN: Okay, well, do you have any questions for me, Mary?
MARY: Yes, what kind of training is needed?
SUSAN: Not a lot. Most new workers can learn everything the first day. Do you have any other
questions?
MARY: No, I don't think so, but I've heard a lot of good things about your company, and I would
really like to work here.
SUSAN: Well, I have a few more interviews to do today, but I will call you tomorrow if you get the
job.
MARY: Okay.
SUSAN: It was sure nice to meet you.
MARY: Nice meeting you, too. Thank you so much for your time.
SUSAN: Yes, good luck.
MARY: Thank you
