How long to hear back from Final Interview?

Subscribe

For quick reference, I was interviewing for ER 12 Month Intern position at a BB bank. I had a HR interview 2 Wednesdays ago, a Phone Interview with a MD and an associate on Monday and finally another interview with MD's and an associate on Wednesday. I thought the interviews went well. I was told I would hear back very soon, and I haven't. I am just wondering what you think chances are moving forward. I've heard here mainly that if you don't get an offer after 1-2 days after final round, you most likely didn't get the job. But I also know, that is for Superdays or OCR, and I really didn't really have an superday and this wasn't part of OCR.. Currently, am a nervous wreck as this could be a big step for me. So if anyone can give me some color as to what to expect or if they have been in a similar situation. Any guidance is much appreciated.

Difficult to gauge when you should get back to HR. I'm in a similar situation (interviewed last Tuesday and HR told me I should hear by Monday/Tuesday..) However, from my experience of dealing with them throughout the rounds, they weren't really in the loop, so I'm not sure what grounds the HR had for coming up with that date.

If you were told 'very soon' by the MD/associate, I think it's fine to reach out now, just asking for an update or when the decision is likely to be made. Maybe wait till close of play tomorrow when it'll have been a full week since your interview?

My thoughts:
Option 1: You didnt get it.

Option 2: They may reach out to you over the course of the next week or so, but they are waiting to see who accepts. If the other candidates take other offers, you're in good shape.

Almost every firm says they will get back to you very soon. I'm sorry buddy but things aren't looking great. That said, I know people who received offers at larger firms 9 days after their interview, and for that same firm, my friend got his offer a few hours after the interview.

How Long to hear after Final Interview with JP Private Bank (Originally Posted: 01/25/2012)

I attended a final interview with JP Morgan PB for the analyst program in the first week of Jan. MD said that HR will contact me in 2-3 weeks. It has been 3 weeks and i have not heard from them. Have i been dinged?

target for life:
If you are too fucking stupid to realize you didn't get the job after 3 days, you didn't deserve it in the 1st place.
