If a company reached out to set up a phone interview and you replied with times you were available, would you follow up with them if it's been 1.5 work days since you emailed them and they haven't set anything up?

Yep follow up and confirm

Wait around 3-4 days before following up. Remember, if they are interested in you at any stage, you would receive communication regularly from them within 3-4 days/max a week every time and at times more frequently.

Nope. I’d wait at least a week. People get busy. It was 9 weeks after my first interview that I got a request for a second interview. And then 4 weeks after that when I got an offer.

It didn't specify when exactly they were trying to have this meeting. I'll give them a few more days to reply. Now that I think of it, for the other phone interviews I've had, they specifically say "please give us some availability so we can have a chat this week". This company left out the "this week" part so I'll wait.

Hi guys, I am due to start working at EY soon within audit. I will be commuting to the office by train when in the Birmingham office. This will be from Leicester. Usually if a commute is about 1.5 hours+, Mazars authorises hotels. Is there a similar policy at EY? When not in the office I would prefer to drive to clients, not sure if me being in Leicester affects whether they will tell me to suck up an extended commute? Would a mileage claim be from the office to the client? Thanks!
