Hello fishes, How many days does Deutsche Bank HR take to roll out the offer letter? One of my close friends attended the interview on 24th of January. The next day got a call from the HR team that they will roll out the offer letter very soon but 26th Jan. being a holiday, she informed my friend to wait for some days. Now my friend who is waiting for the offer letter wants to know when she can expect the offer letter and she can proceed for putting her paper in her current organisation.

IHello Fishes. I have received positive feedback from KPMG interviews for consultant position and have submitted documents. It has been 4 days since I haven't received any call for negotiation or offer letter. How long does it take to get that?

HR / Recruiters specifically - can you guys just please try to be honest with candidates and say its going to be a while before they hear back!! I dont know whats going on but interviewing with several major companies and having to chase down recruiters all day after they say they will follow/up on this or that day and then I dont hear from them for 3-4 days. I am trying to time my interviews/potential offers but they keep getting promises of follow-up on next steps and not hearing back

I'm having the last loop interviews with Amazon for an analyst position, but I'm realizing that it might not be the right place for me, I'm currently working at hpe and have a good balance, 11+ YOE, I'm not sure if it's really worth the effort. Can someone tell me about what level sales ops analyst job might be? I looked for range salaries and it looks like it is 55k for Germany, so not really much of what I'm earning now. I read bad comments about the culture and the workload balance.

Can anyone at a company like Amazon, Microsoft, Apple, etc tell me about the breakdown of a Recruiters job? For example, when I worked in agency recruitment, it was 100% sourcing. Working for a healthcare system now, it is more about the candidate experience, much less sourcing, and focusing on the candidates who do apply (thankfully we have a great reputation). Being that most corporations have dedicated sourcers, I was interested in learning more! Amazon Microsoft Apple Google
