How have Cahill's offers been coming in this year?

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Sep 16, 2011 10:15 pm

Just had a CB with Cahill Gordon. There was an extensive thread on last year's Cahill process, and it seemed like the vast majority of their offers were either on-the-spot or within a day of the callback.

For those who have Cahill offers, how long after the callback have they been coming in?

I know a few people who got offers on the spot and other who got calls the next day. I interviewed yesterday and got no call today, so I'm guessing its not happening for me.

Interview on a Tuesday, offer on a Thursday

I'm in the same boat.

Goddamn it. I thought I had a good showing at the CB, too.

Just to throw it out there, it took about a week for me to get my offer there last year. I go to a T20 school, not a T14, so that may help to explain it.

Did the HR person tell everyone there'd be a 2-week turnaround, or is that reserved for the people they don't really want?

I got my offer the next day, and they told me they tried to get back to people ASAP.

I go to a t-14. I had my callback on a Tuesday and got my offer the following Thursday, as in 9 days.

Via email.

Does everyone interview with the hiring partner, or no? Curious if that factors into how quickly you get the offer.

+1 (interviewed Thursday) but the timeline seems to vary. Who knows??

Just one anecdotal data point but they told me two-week turnaround and I got dinged.

Lol, I interviewed on Thursday, and got my rejection letter this morning. They must have stuffed that letter the moment I went out the door. I didn't say it on here before just in case, but I didn't like it at all there, and I'm sure it showed (hence the quick rejection). The whole environment seemed way too stuffy for me. I go into interviews always with a relatively informal demeanor, always with a smile, telling jokes, having some fun, etc. And I just don't do well with older dudes who make the whole event seem much more serious than it really is. This is probably the least painful rejection I've gotten so far.

That says something for the folks who have gone a long time without a decision: If they don't want you, they would tell you real fast. If you haven't heard, it means you are still in the running, and not just a walking dead rejection.

Wow. I can't believe how quickly they sent that out. But I'm glad you aren't down about it. Did you interview in the morning or afternoon? I haven't heard anything, but I thought it went well overall (my interviewers weren't stuffy at all)...but I know it's impossible to tell how it really went til you get the offer or ding.

My interview wasn't until the very end of the day. The office was essentially closing up by the time I left, around 6 or so. They obviously stuffed the letter immediately after, or early the next morning, and had it shipped quick (also keep in mind that I live very close to that area).

Yeah, the young folks there I really enjoyed talking with, and the proactive and entrepreneurial culture was exactly what I was looking for. But I just don't interview well with people like the head of recruiting there. Again, I always come off as excited, happy, relatively informal, etc. At firms that match this style, I've gotten offers quickly. It says a lot about how my style wouldn't match the firm if the rejection came that fast. So no, I'm definitely not down about it, since it certainly wasn't a match for me.

Oh, and not to mention that my interview with the hiring partner was completely me asking Q's. And it seemed like none of them were getting through. Asked about the conservative management of the firm and how that squares with the desire to seek out new opportunities, about the firm's loyalty to associates (pretty much all partners were summers, and very few lateral), about the entrepreneurial culture of the firm, etc. Kept getting the vibe that the question "wasn't good enough", and it just led to more awkwardness in the transition, since no questions were being directed my way.

Has anyone who interviewed this past week received an offer yet? Or know anyone who has? If so, date of CB and date of offer would be nice to know...

Thanks for the info. Did you interview with the hiring partner? I'm trying to figure out if the fact that I did - and didn't receive an offer on the spot or the day after - means I'm doomed.

Nope, I didn't interview with him
