Unregistered Seek you guys' advice.

Agency A contacted me last week after interview to say they will proceed with the application, including reference checks, but will need 3-4 weeks to confirm an offer.

Immediately the next day, Agency B made a verbal offer, deadline to respond by next Fri.

Very much prefer Agency A's work and also, Agency B is shift-based and Covid-exposed. If you are unemployed, would you take up Agency B out of desperation, but quit if Agency A does come back with an offer? Will you get blacklisted by Agency B subsequently? Any comments would be appreciated.

It depends.

I've got friends who waited for 2 months and got accepted. I myself waited for 2 months and was rejected.

There are also some who reject/accept fast. Know someone who settled in within 1 month.

Unregistered What do they mean by a conditional offer though? Means you need clear security is it? Thatís why so long?

timeline does vary greatly e.g. between different agencies, hr practices, appointment level etc etc

but i guess to check-in with HR at the 1 month point is reasonable
