Hi All,

I recently interviewed with a PE shop
After having met three people there they told me I had been short listed and asked for references to call.
I submitted three names with contact details.

Does anyone here know how long this kind of reference check usually takes?

Thanks for your insight.

    It all depends on the recruiting timeline. If they are in a rush, they will call the references ASAP. If you're one of many candidates, it may take a week. If they aren't very serious about you, but wanted to keep you on ice for awhile, they may wait a couple of weeks. I really wouldn't read it too much, it's out of your control.
