How long to call you back?

Postby yogotti » Thu Aug 11, 2016 4:06 pm

So, I have done a veritable s#!+ ton of OCI screeners. Two (count 'em, two) callbacks. Both callbacks came within 24 hours of interview.

Am I correct in thinking that if there isn't a callback within 24-48 hours, there will probably not be one? Can anyone confirm the existence of call-backs outside that time frame (24-48 hours) post-screener?

Typically yes but one firm, winston strawn, took almost a week to call me back so it's not impossible.

Smaller firms can take longer as well. But stop worrying about it. Massmail and hustle until you have an offer.

I only had one cb that came within 24 hours. I got 4 other cbs all with big firms yesterday, which was about a week after my interviews.

I'm at H and it seems like they're coming slowly this year for us as well

I think at least for DC the callbacks have been to a smaller group of people (at PVD) because of the volume of pre-oci offers. The career people at my school also agree. There are just less offers open right now than in any other year.

They gave them on the spot for the Houston office at our OCI.
