I got referred for a consulting position and had my screening call last Friday. It’s been a week now and I haven’t heard back yet even though I was told they’d get back to me soon. Is this a bad sign?

It can take two weeks, or more - but it doesn't hurt to follow up

Hi! Give it a few more days. Did you try to send a follow up email?

Hang in there for just a little longer. Some organizations do take longer to get around to. Stay hopeful!

Not really; sometimes, some internal processes must be completed before they contact you. Someone may be on PTO, and that is holding the progress of the process.

I don't think it's a bad sign. It normally takes more than a week. Other waited for 3 weeks before they finally got an email from the company. Nowadays, the process takes longer than usual so you need to be patient.
