Just an update: VP emailed me first thing this morning (8am) to apologize profusely and said he was very very very busy on Friday and set up a time to call me today. Yay!

Has to be a good sign, right?

Bumping with an update:

Call with VP went well, but he said he wanted to wait for hiring manager for a decision before moving forward on the other job he had in mind. 2 weeks after my last interview, I emailed the hiring manager to follow up re: their decision. The next day (last Friday) he responded saying they take a while to hire, and that he was just waiting on an answer from HR based on a question he had, and thanked me for my patience and flexibility. Today, he emailed me again asking if I had some time tomorrow for a call.

Does it sound like I got the job? I know I only have one day to find out, I just want to be prepared

Not so great news. Got an email this morning, a few hours before our call, saying this:

"Sorry about this, but a wrinkle came up.
Let's still talk at 2:30…. Either[organization] will have worked out the problem here and we can move forward, or I'll apologize and promise to get back to you as soon as I can. I thought I had everything set."

He called me at 2:30 and basically said the same, that he needed a couple of more days, the org takes forever to hire, asked what I was up to lately, said "Well, good luck to you and to us, and I'll be back in touch soon." I did tell him about my MBA app, so I dunno if that's why he was wishing me luck, or if it was a sly rejection.

GAH! So frustrating. Not as optimistic anymore.
