I was given a verbal offer by my recruiter on Wednesday saying the company I interviewed at would like to offer me a job. After the phone call the recruiter sent me an email listing the salary and other benefits. I accepted the offer and the recruiter passed my details onto the company. The only contact I've had so far with the company is a lady emailed me for my sizes so they could order my uniform. I've also not been asked for my references or IDs for checks. The company is a top 500 global company so many layers of personnel, I guess this could take sometime. So how long should I wait before asking for the written offer, am finding this wait harder than doing the interview itself? I didn't ask the the recruiter about a written offer as I thought it was a given.

I've only dealt with really small companies before so this is a new experience. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

What Should You Do If You Have A Verbal Job Offer But Not A Written One?

Received Verbal Offer. How long does the HR take to get the approvals for the official offer letter?

An offer in email should be good enough.
