Do Fortune 500 companies give exploding 24 hour offers?

The recruiter gave me a 24 hour exploding offer. I thought these sort of things happened only at not reputable companies. Is it a good idea to check with the hiring manager about this because the recruiter is a rogue one?

  • That’s bullshit. I’d ask the recruiter to set up a call with the hiring manager one more time on the phone before making a decision. Then question the hiring manager on the exploding offer. If the HM doesn’t know about the exploding offer, then the recruiter is in trouble and you’ll get the timeline extended. If he knows about it, then run for the hills. You don’t want to work for the company.

    Is the recruiter based out of Austin, TX?

    What is an exploding offer? The offer is wrapping a bomb?

      So it's likely the recruiter is trying to do something he's not supposed to?

    Bullshit. Ask for at least 1 week and if they refuse then walk away.
