    remuneration

    "If I were you, I would take the job you have been offered. You will be working hard but it includes a very remunerative package along with a company car." Is OK to use the Present Simple with the Future Progressive "will be working hard" refers to a point in the future and "includes a remunerative package" refers to the present because the job he might take already exists? Is it used correctly in the context?

    Is it possible say "you're going to be working hard" because you already know that and you are making a prediction?

    If I understand you correctly then yes, it is like saying, "It's going to be cold, so take a coat."
