How many days should you wait to call and follow up after a job interview?

Gem555 on March 16, 2010, 3:54 am

I think you should just let them call you. Three weeks if you must call.

At my work calling up after an interview, will only tell u what's been decided. Doesn't help much

Hoyac on March 16, 2010, 8:24 am

I a mgr @ a restaurant,when I hire I call the applicant back to hire,not wait for them 2 callback

Austin512 on March 16, 2010, 2:20 pm

Well yeah, you give them time to call you back, but after like a week, don't you wanna know?

Gem555 on March 16, 2010, 6:48 pm

It's quite obvious after a week and they haven't called back. And I NEVER call the follow ups back

Austin512 on March 16, 2010, 8:26 pm

Ppl who call back w/o getting a call back just come off too desperate for me, and I hire ppl

I'm a manager at a theater, and follow-up after interview doesn't help, may differ @ other places

Hoyac on March 16, 2010, 8:40 pm

I was always told follow ups look really good because its showing them you really want it.

Gem555 on March 16, 2010, 11:15 pm

It kinda does the opposite to b honest. Think bout the jobs u got, u knew within mayb a cpl days

Austin512 on March 17, 2010, 12:50 am

I knew right away. They hired me on the spot.

Hassle them til u get an interview, it really helps, but after the interview, not so much

Hoyac on March 17, 2010, 4:03 am

She even told me before I interviewed that she hasn't even looked at other applications so it would

Gem555 on March 17, 2010, 4:05 pm

Probably take a little while. That's why I'm asking how long a while is.

Gem555 on March 17, 2010, 4:06 pm

And a lot of jobs have to interview a certain number of people before they hire.

Gem555 on March 17, 2010, 4:09 pm

I wait 2 days

jokersmile on March 17, 2010, 5:03 pm

"Hassling"ur future employer for an interview that u already came n & applied 4,doesnt make sense

Austin512 on March 17, 2010, 6:08 pm

Plus u already said its been a week since ur int,so the woman told u ovr week ago she hadn't hired

Austin512 on March 17, 2010, 6:11 pm

Following up one time after an interview isn't "hassling" in my eyes. And no, it hasn't even

Gem555 on March 18, 2010, 9:10 pm

Been a week yet

Gem555 on March 18, 2010, 9:11 pm

Well then let me tell u from someone who hires and fires ppl. It is Hassling the employer if u have

Austin512 on March 19, 2010, 4:04 pm
