lol I’m confused too about your email to them. I would ask outright why you’re considered part time if you’re working 40 hours a week.

Where did you hear that you are part time from?  I though part time required less than 25 or 30 hours.  I also think she answered your question… you should just be direct and ask her what you are considered in the system and if you get benefits.

Whaaaat. I’d want to know why I’m considering part-time but will be working 40 hours a week! Seems like someone has their signals crossed somewhere.

That is frustrating. I’d email her back and definitely be blunt with them.

Hahaha.  What an asshole. I would reply back saying “Sorry for the confusion, but I am curious as to why I am working 40 hours, but still considered a part time employee with no benefits.”  

You can totally word it better than that.

If they offer benefits to full-time employees, they should have a defined plan laying out who is eligible and when (PT v. FT, hours worked, age requirement, waiting period before benefits kick in, etc). You should definitely mention your hours when you reply to her. They could get in trouble if they aren’t offering benefits to eligible employees. It’s like when some employers claim that some people are 1099 contractors instead of employees to get out of paying taxes/benefits.

@vorpalette:  I’m glad you emailed her back about the fact that you work full-time hours.  I’m curious what she’ll say when she gets back to you.  Hope it works out!

Sounds like they’re trying to flub around and not give 40 hr/week folks the benefits they deserve… I hope she responds that there’s been a misunderstanding and that of COURSE you are eligible for benefits!
