Step 3 -
HR make formal offer.
If candidate is not keen with the verbal offer, most likely than not the hiring process will stop at step 1. The cs generally receives many applications for their vacancies and therefore competition is keen. The next best candidate/s down the line will then be considered. Hence the long waiting time.

Thatís why the wait can be so long esp if we are not the first candidate in line. HR sent prelim offer, why still need to get approval? I thought they should have gotten it before they send the prelim offer.

Yea i second this. I was called 2 days after my final interview so i presume i might be either the first or second candidate in line. But the whole approval process is taking close to a month now. Bit worried.

1) usually how long from application to interview stage?
2) for junior role, MUST have 2 interviews?
3) status "in-process" doesnt really mean anything right?
4) for reference check, do they ask for current employer or previous employer? if i dont want my current employer to know, can i use previous employer?
5) do all jobs only accept fch n 2nd upper?

Nope just a call from them to discuss expected salary and that they will put my designation up for approval. No prelim offer and my reference werenít called upon yet. And it has already been a month. Last checked in with hr 2 weeks back, they were still processing my application.

Hello, I just want to know my chances of getting an offer.

Iíve been sent some forms (incl G50) to fill out and was also requested for some docs and Iíve sent the completed forms and requested docs to them. Was also then scheduled for an interview. Completed the interview and HR emailed me the next day and asked me to fill up a medical questionnaire.

From then on, I havenít heard from them until last Mon, the HR called me and said theyíre conducting reference check. Was a bit baffled because I thought the check should have been done earlier? At least at the point after the interview or when they sent the medical questionnaire. Took them close to a month to start on the reference check from the date of my interview.

In the call, the HR person told me that he is also in the midst of putting up a submission, but also said that it doesnít mean I will confirm get the offer. Anyone knows how long will this take and what does it mean?

So, just want to know how likely am I getting the offer? Getting a bit worried because Iíve seen peopleís offer getting rescinded even after completing and passing everything.

I've been reading many of the posts in this thread now...

Can I ask if most of your interviews are for contract positions in the civil service? Not permanent?
