That depends on the company. I have been hired on the spot and I have waited as long as a month.

What you never do is wait for a response - no matter what they say. Keep applying.

I usually hear the good news either on the spot or within the next 2 days. I personally never had to wait that long if i got the job. If I was their pick, I knew within the same week.

I've never heard back that quickly. The hiring manager generally needs to get formal approval from higher up to make the offer and then he/she has to meet with HR to put together a compensation package. These days, most managers have some (or even all) of their staff involved in the selection process, so the hiring manager needs to get feedback from the staff. This means that it normally takes a minimum of a week to put together a job offer, and depending on schedules and travel it can take longer than that. I generally don't write off an employer until 2 weeks after the interview.

In my personal experience you either get told in person you are hired the same day or they call you within 2-3 buisiness days. If you got a interview friday you should either be told on friday you got the job or monday or tuesday. Unless they are holding out for the candidate they want maximum should be 3 days in my opinion. In other words if they want you to work there they will let you know. Just like when they don't want to hire you they will flat out ignore you. Its like that but the opposite

The longest it ever took me was 1 week. Now time from a verbal "we're going to be extending an offer" and receiving said formal offer has taken weeks or months at some companies. But I was in contact the whole time.

Set a date as to when you will move on emotionally. I wasted too long waiting for calls that never came.

I had a friend who applied to tj maxx she got hired but they never gave her a schedule. I don't care if an employer tells me I am hired until after I get an official schedule and I am on the payroll

Experienced HR Pro in Clifton Park, New York said: I think it depends on the level of the job and the size of the company. In both cases, bigger usually means slower. However, I have always found that when I am a serious contender, I get frequent communication from the company's recruiter. For example, a call the day after an interview to see "how it went". This frequent communication signals to me that they are interested, and want to make sure they keep me on the hook. No communication usually (but not always) means no go.

question i have an interview at the Hilton that is opening in my city in September tomorrow, but I also have an interview Friday at another company, how long should i expect to wait after thursday to know if i got the job? Because wonder if i get hired at the other interview? I know that hilton does not pay front desk that much. should i just comapare the pay of each job?

In both cases where I've applied for a job 1-2 days. Different for everyone though, but if the recruiter says "they're looking to hire someone soon," this will often happen.

And remember that all jobs are temporary in the eyes of the employer. Employers will not hesitate to get rid of employees if they run a little short of money so IMHO employees should never feel guilty about quitting a job if they get a better offer. If your employer is not willing to pay you as much as some other company will, it's your employer's fault that you are quitting.

i hope that me asking the manager at hilton what year did she graduate from my high school did not make my chances of working at hilton decrease, she is 10 years older than me judging from the year she told me but I thought in my head she looked really young so i asked. Her face kind of froze a bit. i mean she looked more fit than me

JS in Bethesda, Maryland

Something has happened in July/August and hiring really picked up.
I have a feeling that there is a change in the trend.
Not only was I very lucky to get a job lately, but I also started to get calls and interviews. After accepting a job I had to turn down invitations to more interviews, one offering a full time job with benefits from day one and another considering for temp-to-hire job, also full time and also with benefits.
I went from ZERO calls/interviews to several calls/interviews and a job offer in a matter of weeks.
While I admit that I was very stubborn, relentless and resilient (kept sending resumes and looking for a job regardless of outcome), still I can't credit sudden surge in interviews to my efforts alone.
All of you who really want to get back to work: do not easily give up, keep looking for a job and send out your resumes. I think you have considerably higher chances of landing a job today than you had just a month ago.
If economy really picks up it will keep getting better because it's all interrelated (more jobs= more money spent by consumer = more entities in businesses = more hiring to meet demand ....).
I don't want to sound premature, I am still skeptical and subscribe to a "let's wait and see" approach, but I think it's just possible that we are finally starting to get out of the extremely prolonged cycle of recession.
Good luck to all !

CONGRATULATIONS! on finding a job JS :). Do you think it might also be the fact that this is school season and alot of people are going school shopping hence more demand for employees to help in the industry? I don't know all I know is even though I do not have a job I have noticed a patter, I rarely get hired in the summer but as soon as august hits i am being bombarded with requests for interviews, however i am still a college student and i would like to finish my last semester(fall). I think its a matter of time before a part time job hands out the orientation papers and getting asked for my direct deposit slip. However I am DONE APPLYING FOR JOBS. LOL. I applied to over 60 jobs followed up with over 20. I think I owe myself a r&r.

Thanks!
I don't know if school season has anything to do with it, because I didn't apply for seasonal jobs. I did not land a job in fast food/service/retail industry.
In fact I landed a job in one of industries that have been rapidly downsizing for the past few years.

It's your choice when it comes to applying for jobs, but I had applied for more than 80 jobs when I came to this forum to vent: I couldn't get even a call-back at the time.
But I kept looking and sending resumes anyway. And I ended up getting a position I really wanted to.

Wish you the best.

I have been picky myself and sent an email to an employer professionally turning down an interview, I hope this does not hurt me in the long run as I have an interview at a hotel Wednesday that I applied to months ago and I can't work all the time because of college

My opinion, which wouldn't even be enough to buy a cup of coffee: an associates degree is worthless. Transfer.

This board is full of people who have bachelor's degrees and haven't found employment, so a BA/BS may be worthless today as well. If you do go for one, find a good school. Don't get some degree from a we-accept-everyone type place like Universiy of Phoenix. Get a degree in a STEM field.

i agree the associate degree is worthless my other community college peers seem to be think it is worth something. Well maybe they already have a job and are content but they just want to move up by thinking a 2 year degree would help. I doubt it. I couldn't even live alone off the full time jobs I have been applying to.

The Associate's Degree in and of itself isn't worth much unless it trains you for a specific field, such as Nursing. My AA is in "Liberal Arts Transfer - Science Option," and I'm sure it wouldn't help me much if it was the only thing I listed for education. What my AA was good for was transferring to a 4-year school. In my state (at least), if you earn an Associate's Degree from a community college with a 2.5 GPA or above, you get automatic admission to state colleges and universities and Junior class standing. My CC also had articulation agreements and scholarship opportunities for other local colleges. I was able to transfer and earn a $10k/year scholarship to a local private college.

my fellow college peers are not pursuing nursing just a liberal arts degree, i think they have it in their minds that any degree=more money. However, maybe they are content in their jobs. I knew this college student in my class who is an assistant manager in retail, she has now moved to a different company in retail. Maybe she likes it. She says she wants to be a history teacher

Don't do it. Any degree won't do it anymore. The office manager at my doctor's office has a Master's in Russian literature. She also went back to school to become certified in medical billing.

I really think the degree has to do with the specific subject/career path. For example if someone has a bachelors in philosophy, they can't be surprised if they do not find a job specific to their degree. They should have seen that coming from a mile away.

My niece is a hair stylist. Both my sister and I talked her out of college. She has been in the business 18 years, works 4 days a week, never been laid off and never had a student loan and she makes pretty good money.

Speaking of sisters, I was going to stop looking for a job because of school but magically my decision to keep job hunting ever since my baby sister now gets to share rooms with me. Yay! This is my dad's apartment. Although, she drives me crazy and with 3 online classes and only 1 lecture class and no job, avoiding her pleasant company is not going to possible. So after my first week of class is done I am back on that high horse again looking for jobs.

I tutored with a very smart woman who graduated from my CC's Rad Tech program. She was unable to find a job in that field for over a year following graduation. She finally found a job, part-time for a morgue, only after she had cross-trained in an extra modality. The same program was pumping out more grads with a waiting list for entering the program. Maybe Texas is different.
