I'd be very grateful if someone could explain to me what the difference between "trial period" and 'probation" is (when talking about a period of time when you're watched to see if you'tre suitable for your new position). Which is more common?
Thank you! If so, how should I refer to it? Are the following sentences fine?
(1) I'm working a trial period.
(2) I'm into my trial period
(3) I'm having (?) a trial period.
Silence gives consent. I'll consider them OK.
I'd use I'm working/doing my trial/probationary period.
