Check with your referances to see if they were contacted and asked about you. Thats always a good sign.

Re: After the Second Job Interview - Signs that you'll be hired
introductions to staff is a good sign.

keep in mind that most places are understaffed so don't hold the interviewer to a hard date...and don't bug them. but do follow up 1-2 days after the return date promised, and then ask when you should follow up again.

-Lasted 40 minutes
-Went in depth about Operations
-Told me I was qualified
-Introduced me to staff
-I asked a lot of questions

supposed to receive a callback early next week because of a few candidates need to be interviewed.. This happened Wednesday btw
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1291112


You are down to the personality test.
That means...if everyone who encountered you, likes your demeanor, character, attitude.....and your face...so to speak.....you are going to be getting an offer.

If someone in a key role says NAY!.....you are done.
 Quoting: Burt Gummer


This actually happened to someone I know before. :\ some fat stupid guy in another department was like NAY to those who wanted to transfer.
 Quoting: Silverblade


I have seen that happen over and over in corporations...and it happened to me once as well.
It's also part of the reason I don't work for people anymore....they work for me.

Re: After the Second Job Interview - Signs that you'll be hired
A handwritten follow up note thank the interviewer for their time/interest is a much better gesture than an informal email.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 926633


It needs to be hand delivered to the receptionist ---they may have already made a decision before snail mail gets there.

It is a good idea to always do this right after your appointment.

Why would you want to whore yourself out to an employer? There are much better ways to make money.

Re: After the Second Job Interview - Signs that you'll be hired
Did you "ask for the job"?
Something like 90% of interviewees never formally ask to be hired. They show up, do the interview, might even e-mail or snail mail thanking them for their time...
But they NEVER friggin say..." I'd like to formally ask that I be hired for this position".

I know it sounds silly, but my wife is a VP for a large company and is over HR. She knows about these things.

Also, interviewers sometimes pause for a REALLY LOONG time during an interview to see how you handle yourself under pressure. Sometimes they'll ask a question, you'll answer...

And they'll just stare at you. YOU WOULD NOT BELIEVE THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO WILL START BLABBING...

Hey, Potential Indentured Servant!

Did they drop the bombshell on you yet? That is to say did they mention that you will be prostituting yourself for a wage that you cannot live on?

Did they mention that you are going to pay the majority of the costs of your benefits yourself...out of pocket?

How long is your "probation" period? Get it? Probation period.

Finally, If this position is a salaried job, you are totally and utterly fucked. You WILL be at work a minimum of 60+ hours per week...or else. Eventually those hours will be INCREASED. Another thing. DO NOT expect your wage to keep up with the rate of inflation.

Also, watch your back. There will be devils, and demons who will be ready and waiting to devour your mind, self esteem, health and soul.

Are you into character asassination where yours will be the target early and often?
been there etc

If I were you, I would send the interviewing agent a nice follow up email thanking them for their time and reaffirming your desire to work at said company - these things go a long way!

Good luck, OP, let us know the results. I agree that meeting the staff is a good sign but having references checked is better.

As for the sick shills trying to lower the level of discussion on almost every thread here, we know what you are trying to do - shame on you - I trust your "work" will be judged someday and it won't be pleasant.

if they said you were qualified AND introduced you to the staff then you're good, if it was a no then they wouldve said that they would keep you posted, shook your hand and you wouldve just left like that, plus it wouldnt have lasted 40 mins, more like 10 or 15 maybe 20 at the most.

Actually why bother? Hopefully you prepared with guns and ammo because I don't think it's long before the revolution begins. Thinking this really means that people just stop paying for homes underwater, credit cards, taxes, traffic tickets, and insurance.
Oh it will be a mess until people realize that most of this crap didn't exit at one time anyways.
