Default For jobs in public sector, when would the interveiw outcome be known?

Say after a job interview for a position in the public sector, usually, what would be the typical timeframe for the HR to get back to the selected job seeker?

Will it be very fast? on the same day after the interview, a day after the interview? or even 2 weeks?

Those who have been offered a position after an interview, how long did the HR take to get back to you?

I am not sure because I have no experiences, but I will like to join in the discussion as well.

I think there are a few possibilities:

- The HR working efficiency
- After the closing date of the job opening

Correct me if I'm wrong ya? Cheers.

MOE offered me a $1000 pay cut last time. They are quite by-the-book about the whole 'relevant experience' thing.

moe offer me almost same annual salary, higher basic n lower bonus, my previous company is lower basic n higher bonus.

the only relevant thing in the jobscope is "project management"

they never give me what i want of +20% annual salary, so i reject.

Goodness. Grasscutter still talking about his miserable grasscutting career. If he had quit and spent time giving tuition or selling kway teow or mee mok, maybe he would have become a millionaire already.
