I interviewed with a company on 2/12. I was contacted the next Tuesday and setup a phone interview for Wednesday the 17th and another in person interview on Thursday the 18th.

All 3 interviews went great. The 3rd interview was with the VP and it only lasted for about 20 minutes. She said she just wanted to meet in person to make sure I was a good fit.

I haven't heard anything since then. The 3rd interview talked about me specifically in the position, showed me what would be my office, talked about how I'd be setting up a drug test soon, etc... She really made me feel like I was getting the job.

I emailed them last week on Tuesday and got an out of office. She was supposed to be back on Thursday. At what point should I reach out to them again?

I really want this job and I am starting to feel like they are handling this pretty poorly. I am looking to recolate and drove 2-2 1/2 hours for each interview. The least they could do is let me know what is going on. It has been 10+ days.

The important question: did you ask for, or did they give you, a timeline for when you would hear back? It is crucial to get this information after each interview!

Besides, 10 days is nothing really. I'm currently waiting to hear back from a company that said they would respond to me within two weeks, and that time has come and gone. At my current job I got jerked around for months before finally getting hired. You've already reached out for an update. I would just let it go at this point. The ball is in their court now. They could have any multitude of reasons for not getting back to you, and pestering them with more than one request is not going to help you.

I did not get that info... Based off our conversations, it seemed like I was the only person being interviewed. All prior conversations were very quick and communication was easy.

After a little more investigating, it looks like she is still out of the office. I don't know, I think my wanting/needing of this job has me worried. Like I said, the interviews went great, I was just expecting an offer pretty quickly.

Don't stop applying for other positions, but this one does sound promising.


There could be something serious that happened in your contact persons life (a death, an accident) that is causing them to be out. And often, no one is taking over their email or doing anything more than handling the MOST pressing issues. Unfortunately, a new hire isn't one of them.


I understand being extra stressed. If it was meant to be, it will be.


Good luck!

That doesn't mean the message wasn't received. If they want to reply, they can reply.

I got the job today, she was out of the office longer than expected and wasn't checking email.

Congratulations. That took about 3 wipes, which really isn't unusual.
