Dear Mr. Fishman
Peter Paul has applied to our company, Acme Container Company, for the position of shipping supervisor. He would be assisting the Warehouse Manager in overseeing both incoming and outgoing shipments of our materials. This would involve managing inventories which amount to thousands of dollars each day.
Mr. Paul has given us your name to contact as a reference. I understand that he has worked for the Good Deal Manufacturing Company for a number of years doing similar work.
Would you be willing to provide some insight as to his work ability and habits. We would also be looking for information about his work history and overall record.
Thank you for your time.
