Why do companies take long time to respond after an onsite interview ?

Oct 29 18 Comments

I have interviewed with World Wide Technology, Indeed, & Goldman Sachs. Damn they are taking so much time after the onsite interview to respond. If they feel my performance is not good, why don't they just give a reject asap. Won't they even forget the candidate performance on the interview by taking this long time?. It is really difficult for me to give interviews for many companies at a time.

    Sometimes they won’t respond at all.

    Word on street is Issac Newton is still waiting to hear back from Albertsons.

    Edit: to be fair they did send him an Apple.

      I have taken a complete day for each of these interviews off work, at least I deserve to know the result.

    They are interviewing other candidates because they haven't found a strong hire.

    I've had a company send me a reject two months after the on site

      Interviewers will write their feedback within 1-2 days. But they do not make decision, hiring committee does based on written feedback, so forgetting you is not an issue.

      Wow, a month? Gotta be painful tbh. How about apply more and compete for nego?

      2 weeks is a stretch, but i could understand that. Month is too long, I agree. It’s a crappy company that does not respect the candidate.

      @sksjon I don't have many PTO's left on my side. Soon, I'm gonna lose money for the interview days LOL. Here then I'm planning for only big shots.

      You’re assuming all these companies have hiring committees. Things don’t work the same way outside of FAANG.

    Only thing you can do is literally forget and focus on next interviews. The problem is that you are trying to control things you can't: recruiters giving you the result. Just accept the reality and move on.

    Indeed was hyperslow for post-onsite steps for most of 2019 due to hiring freeze. It should be better by now though.

      Way better now. During the freeze I was doing no interviews. Now at least twice a week.

    Interviewers availability to discuss and write a feedback. Other candidates availability. Background and references check can slip. Also other companies suck while amazon delivers 2&5 promise. Seriously.
