Before talking to your potential employer in an interview, it’s best to equip yourself with some basic knowledge, especially about the job you’re applying for.

In his Facebook post, a Malaysian employer recently shared a screenshot of conversations with a Gen Z candidate, who said that he can work for 6 days a week, which is the job requirement for a full-time where an employee gets a day of rest.

The candidate suddenly asked for a part-time employee’s pay range, saying he was actually looking for a part-time position.

Yes, he told the interviewer that he could make it to work 6 days a week, but he thought that was the work schedule for a part-timer, NOT a full-timer.

Feeling baffled, the interviewer responded by asking him what a work schedule for a full-timer looks like.

“Based on my understanding, a full-timer works 7 days a week. I’m not so sure of the working schedule for a part-timer nowadays,” the candidate said.

The interviewer then told him that a part-timer usually works just 2 days a week.

Now, here’s when things got a little more confusing.

Despite his ability to work 6 days a week, the candidate now said he couldn’t do it full-time and apologised.

The interviewer explained to him again about the work schedule of a full-timer and part-timer, to which the candidate said he would consider it. However, the interviewer politely told him,

“I think it’s fine. I don’t think this job is meant for you. We want to avoid possible misunderstanding and communication barrier in the future. Thank you for reaching out to us.”

The candidate responded with another apology, and the conversation ended there.


To those who are working part-time, what does your schedule look like?
