When applying for jobs, how long has it taken to hear back?

From my experience it seems like typically you will hear something within 10-14 days of applying but that depends on which month you apply.

What are y’all’s experience?

I'd say about two weeks on average. Maybe a little longer around the holidays since people are taking PTO, shorter work weeks, etc.

I’ve found that applying during Late November/ December has increased that too a month-ish (for those looking for my experience)

Hi Everyone,
I need 11 hearts to DM a recruiter, can you please help me.

Underwhelming experience interviewing at Google thus far . Recruiters are far from organized while the actual interviewer comes with a robotic set of case questions without even bothering to ask anything about your background or experience. And when asked a question they give an ambiguous long winded answer which is barely related to the original question . While EY may not match the money Google pays we definitely treat prospective hires with much more courtesy and respect.

I'm in the middle of a background check with Deloitte for a Project Delivery role. In the background check application I listed my previous employers - Cognizant/Teksystems etc but my resume only had the client names I worked at . Does this pose a problem if Deloitte HR compares my resume to the background check form ? Also my title within cognizant might have been an associate but my resume mentions the designation for the client. Is this a reason for concern? Will they ask me to justify it ?

Hi guys, I’m interviewing at Guidehouse USA, and I was given a PowerPoint and excel sheet for a case study. Some of the questions asked in the PowerPoint deck technically require me to study the TA and have a detailed understanding of existing drugs on the market.
Is this how we are expected to answer the questions? Or do I just draw a framework to show how I will get the answers? I’m not sure if I’m reading too much into this!
Anyone who has done such an interview please help?

My wife and I are considering relocating to a new city. I’ve been working with a recruiter who (I thought) gave me a good lay of the land. Which firms to meet with re lateral opportunities, which to avoid, etc. I’ve since spoken with a friend who has connections at other firms that could be a better fit. Do I bring in my recruiter or reach out through connections? Is using a recruiter beneficial to me, or am I better off on my own? How does their fee play in to what I could get as a package?

Has anyone struggled with Apple recruiters taking forever to schedule interviews? The hiring manager loved me and the recruiter asked for more interview times but it’s been 3 days and nothing has been scheduled. They did the same thing after the phone screening as well…. And during that initial phone call I was basically told I’d be done interviewing by this week but now all of a sudden it’s 3-4 weeks from now??

Seems like a disconnect between HR and the actual hiring teams…

When I asked the HR, he told me to accept it for now and bring the counter offer letter so they can revise offer letter.

But now they declined. Weird.

Just got let go and my manager said part of it was because I was looking for other jobs.

Can't deny that I'm seriously pissed off about it.
