Apple background check is done. Anyone here got to that point and didn't receive an offer?

Finally the background part is done. Received an email from the coordinator with "Congratulations, you met Apple standards", and to reach out to the recruiter with the next steps. Touch based with the recruiter and provided her some additional info about compensation she asked on the phone last week. Haven't heard from her since last week when she sent me the background check link.

At this point, anyone had an experience of not getting an offer? I haven't heard a verbal offer yet...

    I’m sorry to inform you after such a delay in response after providing compensation details it’s highly unlikely you’ll get the call with the offer. Best of luck in your job search!

      Is that something you experienced personally?

    Background checks normally do take this long, and i hate it too. I wish it was common for background checks to happen before an offer is made/accepted

      Neither, I’d never allow a background check to be done without an agreed offer. What a waste of time if the offer doesn’t turn out to be what you expected?

      It would be an even worse waste of time if you accept an offer, decline all other offers, and the background check on your accepted offer raises an issue and it gets rescinded, possibly after you have given your current employer your two weeks notice.

  • Strange, usually I see offer first and it says contingent to background check

      Yeah...seems like at Apple it's a common practice to do the BC before, as heard from couple people already that where in the similar situation.

    background check takes 2 weeks or more, especially if your degrees/experience are from abroad, if they ask for extra information during the background check it can take much longer.
