I was just imformed by the manager with whom I interviewed that I am one of his "choices" (they are looking to fill two supervisor positions) and he sent the paperwork to the regional HR department so the people there can "figure out salaries" and give him the "ok" to hire me and the other person. I asked him, then, if I was officially hired. He said I wasn't-that we have to wait on regional HR. Does anyone know exactly what role the people in regional HR play in this process? Do they carry out background checks at this level (or more detailed or additional ones)? Also, what are the chances of the people at regional HR rejecting my application?
Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
