How long is too long?

Just wondering how long would you expect to hear back from an organisation, you'd been for an interview? Have been waiting over a week for an email saying 'thanks, but no thanks' - common courtesy?

They may still be interviewing, depends how popular the job was. I'd give it 2 weeks. No point in contacting them, if you get the job they would most certainly contact you. Good luck!

Anything over 9 inches is too long.

A mate of mine worked in local government, not Lewes. His department advertised, shortlisted, and interviewed for a job and then lost all the papers. So they gave the job to the first of the interviewees who phoned to ask what had happened.

I went for an interview and it was over a week and I heard nothing. I emailed to ask and a day or so later I was offered the job which I took. Turns out they initially offered it to someone else, who turned it down as the salary wasn't high enough for them. This has happened to me twice....Always second best

I wouldn't contact them, it will look like you are begging and desperate. The chances are you haven't got the job if you have not heard by now. I know it's hard to swallow, they obviously don't want you, everyone likes to be well thought about. I'm so sorry it didn't go your way, I'm sure you will move on in life, well perhaps not if you live in Lewes. Anyhow all the best for the future, I wish you well.

I know someone who went for an interview - 10 minutes, 45 mins later got offered the job.

Gordon: When I was young i went for a job as a hospital porter. Short interview with the hospital secretary. She said they'd let me know. I went home. Half an hour later she phoned and asked if I could start the next day. Those were the days. Now you have to fill in masses of forms, send them to 'Human Resources', wait to hear if you're being interviewed, be interviewed, perhaps have a second interview, wait for a letter to say you've got the job. One place I worked the Personnel department was five strong when I started. By the time I'd left after 10 years it was five times as big AND it had outsourced recruitment to an agency.
