Travel Reimbursement... should I be waiting this long?

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Nov 16, 2010 12:29 am

I had a callback where I was given a travel reimbursement form as I left. I returned in through PDF (with confirmation) and by mail. This was now 6 weeks ago. I got rejected by the firm about 4 weeks ago.

I think I know the answer, but I really am more curious if anyone else is still waiting for some reimbursement.

Just give them a quick call. Just be polite :)

I don't think you do. The ten week rule is in play here. You're done homie.

I don't remember when I submitted my reimbursements, but definitely at least 4-6 weeks ago at many firms, and it took them at least that long, if not longer to get back. I am still waiting on some firms. Will probably give them a call in December if I don't hear back... but I think it takes a while sometimes to sort through these things.
