Stupid over-paid hamsters ate my post, dammit. Well, this one should be shorter. This is a question about a new job that I’ve had a couple of interviews for.
Mr. HR - first approached me after I submitted my resume through their website. We had a quick screening phone interview, then we eventually set up a follow-up phone interview with Mr. Big for last Tuesday (July 27).
Mr. Big - one of the guys making the hiring decisions. Wasn’t available to talk on the phone, so I talked to Mr. Medium, who would be my boss. We hit it off well, I think, and he said he’d recommend me to the decision makers.
I called Mr HR back on Friday morning, thanked him for setting up the interview and stuff and stuff, then asked if he had heard anything, and what the next steps were. He said he hadn’t heard anything, but that he would talk to his team and see what was going on. But I never heard back from him.
I know it’s only Monday, but I have no indication what the timeframe is here. Mr. Medium doesn’t make any of these decisions, so he didn’t know what the time frame was. It sounds like Mr. HR is completely out of the loop right now. What do I do? Should I call Mr. HR again (and when)? Should I try calling Mr. Big, even though I’ve never met him (on phone or in person)? Should I call Mr. Medium and see what he thinks? I feel like a 13-year old boy with a crush on the cute girl in 3rd period English. Excuse me while I go check my voice mail.
