I have two years experience as a the main designer in a print company. I hold an MA in Design. I am looking for a new job and had an informal chat with a central london company (well it was in starbucks to fit it in after work). They have now asked me to come in for a one day trial. Its a temporary post advertised as 3 months but they said "verbally" its likely to be 12 months or more. I feel really hard pressed to take an entire day off to work somewhere for free (not to mention the £25+ cost of going into central london in rush hour) - but more than that, I feel like somethings not right. I mean who asks a qualified person to come in for one days free trial knowing they are employed somewhere else. I feel like its too much to ask. Its more the principal of it than the actual act - yes I can work for one day but I don't think thats right for them to ask. Its not even permanent. Has anyone else been asked to do a one day trial? If so how much experience did you have at that time. Would you go to this trial? If so why? If not why? Any advice appreciated.
