Does anyone know how long the IBM background check and onboarding process is? A little lost. I accepted my offer last Wednesday and they're yet to get back to me.

Have you started the background check already? Usually it takes a week, minimum 3 days, or up to 10 business days depending on the company they use.

Has HR reached out to you with any updates?

When you say you accepted last Wednesday, do you mean the 18th or the 11th?

Do you have specified start date?


Hi thanks for you response. I accepted the offer 18th and completed the forms around that time.

They have begun the background check.

I don't have a specified date yet

It will take around 2 weeks, so probably by next week you will get a response, but no worries it usually get passed for everyone unless there was a serious security issue.
Best of luck!


Hi thanks for the information! I'll be on the lookout this week

My boss snapped at me in front of my team today, including people who report to me. I’ve been working weekends and long hours to help him. The work here is mostly boring and unfulfilling otherwise I’d have an easier time accepting how he spoke to me. I’m thinking of quitting, but don’t want to before I make it a year here, I can accomplish a lot of my financial goals and pay off my loans. At the same time, I don’t like the people I work with and generally feel unfulfilled. Leaving will burn cont
