Post the first interview, it really depends on which position you are applying for. For entry level sales positions, typically you will interview with a hiring manager, and in some cases, a follow up with a DM. If they decide to move forward, they work with HR, who will then communicate to you to submit to Drug and Background. I usually set an expectation with a candidate of at least 2-4 weeks, as D&B is purely dependent on the jurisdiction you live in (drugs tests come back very quickly... but I've seen background checks take a long time). A hiring manager should set realistic expectations of time. For management and exempt employees, you will typically have 3-4 interviews, sometimes panel, and it can take a while. When I applied for an internal training position years ago, I had three interviews, had to submit a video of a mock training presentation, and then do the same presentation in front of a panel. Then three months later I was finally offered the position. The opening, as it turned out, had been put on hold because of a hiring freeze (which was eventually lifted). So, it really depends on the position, and the hiring manager. Some are better than others at following up. If you apply for a retail position and hear nothing, DO NOT start stalking the hiring manager. I had applicants get my number and start calling repeatedly because they had not heard anything about their application... and the reason was that they had failed the screening assessment. So I never even saw the app, as it is not pushed forward at that point. Last... Drug and background results stay in place for 6 months or more. So if you fail either, you cannot even reapply for at least that amount of time (and even then there are no guarantees!) It sounds like an ordeal, but in reality isn't bad. Sprint has a very good HR and recruiting team.

Like most large corporations, things seem to move slowly. Expect multiple interviews and multiple POCs while you move thru the process.
