Lawyer answer, I KNOW, but it depends where you’re ranked in the top 3. If you’re their #1 candidate, you’ll hear within a day or so. My final interview was Friday afternoon and I literally heard first thing Monday morning. If you’re #2 or #3, they’ll keep you on ice to see whether #1 accepts the offer. If not, you’ll be up next. That process could take up to two weeks depending on the negotiations. Here’s hoping you’re #1. G’luck!

I would say at most a week. Figure there are only 1-2 candidates at that point so they need to interview both and then decide. Even if formal offer letter takes a little longer verbal notification should come

Recently got two in house offers. One about 3 days after final interview, the other took about 2 weeks.

2-3 weeks. Sometimes HR departments have a long list of people they are bringing on, and legal just isn’t their top priority as it is a cost center only.

Great answer!

I interviewed for a Sr. HRBP/Generalist role and based on my experience (11 years, 2 as a manager, education (Masters in HRM) asked for 120K - 130k range. They decided to move forward with the interview process and then made me an offer for 110k with $9,500 bonus and said will review comp again in October. This is much lower than I expected for the base. Any good negotiators with good tips to use to counter offer? One mistake I made is to let them know that my current job ends Feb 28th. Thank

Any thoughts on making this switch?
