I just did the final round of interviews for a job position that I love in a company that I like really much.
The manager that I should replace is leaving next Monday and they want me to start as soon as possible, so they are pushing me for a contract so "I can start right away" since they need me urgently, while a full time position requires, they say, "to wait for all the papers to be ready".
It's a remote position, and I'm not aware of what kind of documentations they need to fill to hire me, but I'm sure I'm more interested in been hired full time than having a contract.
I'm getting different feedbacks from friends and colleagues and I a really need an advice from someone who understands more about these issues.
Should I accept a contract, start right away and then wait for them to move it to full time? Should I push for a full time and ask them to wait until all the papers are done?
A friend I have at the company suggested me to push for a full time position because he is positive they have the budget for that.
Let me know what you think.
