2 months wait? Move on. They’re trailing you and using you as back up talent. Basically if someone quits they have you “just in case”. Normally there’s 2, maybe 3 interviews max if you’re applying for a store manager position. I’ve see managers hired on in less than 3 weeks. 60 days is them toying with you. Move on.

I got hired right after my interview. I would keep calling and asking about the position, and proceed to look for other jobs.

Report answer

I was hired when my store was first opened. They had the store manager at the time in addition to the district manager and a lady whom I was not introduced to, conduct the interviews. It was a very pleasant experience. I felt that even though I was interviewing with my future boss and my boss's boss, it was much less stressful than it could have been. They were both very polite and friendly!

I was hired in about 2 weeks, I believe I was hired quick because it's a seasonal position and I showed them what type of person I was and they loved me.
