Phone offer... followed up by snailmail offer?

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Sep 09, 2011 4:45 pm

I received a phone offer about a week and a half ago and was promised that I would receive a formal offer and details via snailmail. I haven't received anything yet. It's pushing 2 weeks.. should I be worried? How long does this usually take?

Just call them and have them email a pdf to you.

OP here
..jokes aside, I'm getting a bit worried. How long does it normally take to receive the snailmail offers after the initial call?

It varies. One V10 got back to me in a week. A V5 offered me on Friday, and the letter was in my hands on Tuesday. I think it's reasonable to give 'em a week. After that, you should place a call into HR.
