How long before you got a rejection? I assume if you get an interview, they aren't going to just leave you hanging, right?

I interviewed 3 weeks ago first round. Haven't heard anything from them.

A month is as long as I've gone without hearing about a second interview. Never had a first round screener ding, though.

Which office?

I had a six week gap between second round interview and being notified of being selected for a third round. It’s mind numbingly slow.

What office?

The day after the interview they called my references and asked one reference if they would be willing to do a background investigation for me and sent that person forms to complete. Has anyone encountered a reference being asked to do background investigation work before you even received an offer?


Did you end up getting an offer?

Thanks for letting me know. I've been in purgatory with DDC for a while since my final interview...I wasn't sure how long the wait typically was, so this is helpful with giving me some "closure," even if I haven't officially gotten the ding.

Congrats again.

Sure (omitting quotes from post above)

End of June--> Sent Application, called for interview 2-3 weeks later
End of August--> First round interview, called for second interview 2 weeks later
Beginning of October--> Second round interview, emailed offer for final round interview one week later
Mid-October--> Final round interview, references were called day after final and offer extended two weeks after that

Thank you. I had my second round about a month ago, but haven’t heard anything since then. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Post final interview and received a request for references. How (cautiously) optimistic can I be?
