Have not heard back!

  1. 0
    I know this has been said a million times before but I interviewed Wednesday last week and I still have not heard back! I know I should be patient, but I just want someone to help me put my mind at ease because I am going crazy just waiting and waiting! Should I call HR tomorrow? or wait until Wednesday to give them a full week? The worst part is that a person I know now has an interview at this same hospital and unit.. I don't know how many people are being hired or how long they will be interviewing for but I'm just driving myself crazy thinking. Should I call tomorrow?

    Just call the nurse recruiter/hr to check status and/or when you should expect to hear back from them. When do they plan on making their decision, how will you know of their decision- will u get a phone call/email, etc. they're used to getting calls like that. No big deal. gl!

    It also doesn't hurt to ask how many other candidates are they considering and how many are they planning to hire. Those are all valid questions to ask. Again, gl!

    I would say call or e-mail just to follow up, they love when you show interest! I interviewed a month ago for a same day surgery unit, and they told me it'd be a few weeks, and it drove me nuts! So finally last week I send the manager a very nice email telling her I absolutely loved the unit and was just wondering if I was still under consideration, two days later I got a call offering me the job! Long story short, follow up and just call! cant hurt anything

    Okay I think I feel better about calling now. I have been reluctant to ask those questions because I didn't want to come across too aggressive or pushy but you are right, they must get these kinds of calls all the time. I think I will wait until the end of the day tomorrow to make the call. Thanks for replying

    i know most places won't hire until they've completed the interview process for all considered candidates....a while ago i interviewed for a transport position at a major area hospital and it took a month to hear back because they had to go through all of the applicants first......so less than a week is nothing.

    Call and follow up, ask when should you expect to hear something back. I know the feeling. I love it when I've been hired on the spot, it definitely puts your mind at ease.
