I know this is up in the air and not under my control but it is just eating at me and i would love some opinions. =) I will break it down and not get too lengthy. BTW, this was this past Thursday.
1st interview - went well chatted, got along well, she asked for 2nd interview while I was still there. Called me 10 minutes after I left asking for a time the next day.
2nd interview - 2 people. First guy was very nice, chatted a lot with me even before we went in. Used phrases as if I was already in the position. Really nice, walked me out chatting about his upcoming vacation. Told me they would have a decisions within 7-10 days. When I said I hoped to hear back from them he said "You will" and then gave a wink and walked away. Not a sexy wink, lol, just a hey we gotcha wink.
2nd guy in the 2nd interview was the owner, nice, came at me with lots of questions, I actually had him laughing at some points. The interview itself though scary for me was conversational and fun. He asked when I could start.
I sent thank you emails. Both responded. The first guy finished up his email with "we will have a decision in 7-10 days. I will talk to you soon".
The first person who interviewed me sent an email asking me for interview feedback (she is HR). I sent an email talking about how great it went...
About an hour later I received an email telling me I was a top candidate and the only concern for them was if I would be happy with the money I would make my first year (I made more in my last job). she also told me she reiterated to the men that I was looking for safety, work life balance and although money was important, It was not my motivator. (its a good job)She was asking if it was OK she said that on my behalf. I responded with a great answer about why that was great. She also stated they hoped to have a decision next week. I am used to being hired immediately.
Anywhoo, Ideas??? I didn't sleep the night after..LOL. I was just like some input.
