Mine took about 9 days total to complete. From the time I got a verbal offer to the time I had an email/official letter it was about 5 days.

Yeah was just trying to give insight on what all went on.

Mine was complete in less than 24 hours. Super fast. All comms came from HireRight.

Thank you for the insight

Congrats on the offer. Mine took 24 hours. I provided pay stubs, tax return upfront.

Sometimes they don’t even do one. Only thing they checked for me was that I had a college degree.

Also you might want to negotiate. I’m an L4 with a higher OTE.

G4, any idea of what OTE for L6 Customer Engineer in NY looks like?

Once you sign the offer, the background check kicks off. I mean, it's just a background check - unless you've fudged your resume or done anything incriminating, it's just a formality. But if you want to be sure, sign the offer and set a date 4wks out. Should give you enough time to clear background and also, two weeks at your current employer post b/c check completion

No anomalies in my background. Wanted to time my resignation appropriately to meet existing commitments in my current role.

What’s OTE ?

On target earnings, it means if you hit 100% of your quota.

Most of it is completed within 24-48 hours. The criminal check can take up to 10 business days

I have an oppty to switch careers but worried about the $$$ I’m letting go. My current situation is:

- Great chance of making a lot of money after it goes public in about 6-7 months
- Joined the company 3 months ago so I haven’t vested any options yet
- Role is non-Product Manager

Got this offer:
- 180k base + options (0.12%}

- Series A, so very far from exit/IPO
