I recently got hired at a new part time job. I'm scheduled to do the paperwork & the training, I did well in both interviews, I'm excited. I'm a premed student & what I've done this past year is work, go to school and volunteer. So with this new job, I also found a new volunteer opportunity in a lab, & they wanted to know my availability. I called the new job to see if they can tell me what my new schedule is going to look like.
When the manager called me back he seemed confused and flustered- seemed to think I was changing my availability, when all I was asking is when they wanted me to come to work? He wasn't angry but he made it seem like I was posing some kind of problem- said he was sorry to put me in a bind...the call ended on a good note (I reiterated that my availability is the same & that I am quitting my old job, which he seemed to think I was keeping??)
Did I breach some kind of etiquette?
