Do you think it’s okay for a hiring manager to ask folks that they think may know you because they may have worked with you for references without asking you for references or asking you if it’s okay to ask?

My former manager always ask us about any new hires.

It’s unfortunate that happened to you but if you live in a community where everyone knows someone who knows you kind of situation it happens. Not much you can do about the rumor mill if I was you I would move on if this is how the company does business you already know it’s not something you want to be associated with. Good luck to you!

Hello folks!

I've cleared all rounds of interviews in a good company (atleast acc to me) and since they accepted my 3 months NP so I don't want to let it go.
The problem is its been around 2 weeks and I still haven't received offer letter after final discussion. Till now I was following up with HR, he is a good person (what I felt).
I'm getting a little restless and want to follow up with the manager(who took my interview) to fasten the process without appearing desperate.
Any suggestions?🙏
