    I applied for a part time job at a local co-op store a few weeks ago and received an email stating that I would be contacted by a colleague. However I wasn't contacted by anyone and it turns out that I misinterpreted the email and my interview was supposed to be at the time i thought I would get a call to arrange an interview. Personally I think the email was not clear at all and didn't even give me any specific info about the interview. How would you guys have interpreted the email.

    There's no issue of 'fault' because there are no rules covering this exchange. Mark is barely literate and you should have read the email more closely and considered the ambiguity in his grammar. He is still barely literate, and you have learnt something, so you are still better off!

    If there's ever ambiguity with something like this, ring the company and ask for clarification. It's better to ask than to misunderstand and cost yourself a potential job!
