Hello,

I have recently interviewed for a company. After the interview, I received a call about 5 days later with a verbal offer. I was told that the written offer needs to get approved by a few VPs and a Director. It has been about 5 days since I received the verbal offer. However, the company still has not done any reference checks. In fact, they have not even asked me for my references yet. Is it strange that a company would give a verbal offer but not even have a list of references? What do you all think? Thanks!

It does seem strange, but they may be waiting to get approval by higher management before taking the time to check references, in which case it's an offer contingent upon references and should have been stated as such. It's also possible,
though very unusual, that they don't require reference checking but depend solely on a background check.
