Keep contacting recruiter or should I call/email interviews?

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Oct 17, 2012 11:52 pm

Had CB for SA awhile ago but still no result. Recruiter keeps saying he will let me know soon. Should I call or email my CB interviewers for update?

How long is awhile ago?

I would say no to contacting interviewers on this. Likely your on a wait list.

This is OP. Almost four weeks now. I just don't trust the recruiter. He seems to be BSing with me with the same crap over and over gain.

You're probably on some sort of wait list which is why the recruiter is giving you some sort of run around. At this point I'd argue your odds aren't good but heckling your interviewers isn't going to get you anywhere (they probably couldn't even help or give you any info anyways).

Does the same apply for someone whose CB was almost 8 weeks ago? There isn't a local recruiter (only one at their main office in a different market). I could e-mail the assistant who set up my CB or one of the interviewers, but would it be better to wait until they make their final decision?

Call the person you interviewed with. But at this point, if it was 8 weeks ago and it wasn't a government position, then that means you most likely did not get the position.

Although that is likely true, I'm hoping I'm on some sort of waitlist if they haven't rejected me yet...

If they haven't contacted you in a while it doesn't hurt to check in with recruiting or the assistant responsible in that office. I was more responding to OP who seems to want to go around recruiting when the recruiter has been in constant contact with OP.

I got owned by waitlists. I didn't get a single offer off of waitlists, and I was on about 8 of them after cb's. Perhaps your experience will be different, but my anecdotal experience was that being on the waitlist was basically a delayed rejection.
