    How to delay accepting a job offer?

    I'm an entry level Mechanical Engineer and I was offered a job last Monday and went in today to discuss it further with the company. I can tell they really wan't an answer for me soon. The problem is that I have an interview tomorrow with another company that I've been interviewing over the phone the last month. There's a good chance I'll get an offer from them also but I don't know how long it will take them

    I would really like to compare offers side by side but I figure I don't have too much more time to make a decision on my current offer. What are some good ways to buy time. I know I have to take a drug test for my current offer and they said it usually takes a week to process the results and setting up the employment. I guess if I really had to I could cancel after that all went through but I really prefer not to do that. Anyone been in this position before?

    Do the drug test and interview for the other job. If you shorthand either one you might end up with nothing.

    Accept the first job. If things go well with the second job, you can always resign from the first, likely before you start. If you delay and they give the job to someone else and then you dont get the second job, your left with nothing.

    Do you have any additional questions regarding benefits, opportunity for advancement, compensation, travel, relocation, etc. that have not been addressed?

    If so, you could draft an email asking those questions and that may buy you some time as you wait for the responses....

    Tell them you have another company who is interested and waiting to hear their offer first?

    Yes it might rustle some jimmies at first but in the end it's your job. Pick the best one for you.

    do not do this. just politely ask when the deadline is for a decision. it's not of their business to ask why and they won't. i was in your shoes and did this. worked fine.

    lol at people saying to tell them you have another interview, you guys must be new. that is a huge turn off to a future employer.

    Agreed. Don't lie or try any games, ask them straight up when they need an answer because another company is interested and you'd like to hear their offer. Worst case scenario is they say they need an answer immediately and you take that job.

    pfft, that's easy. press the "delay contract offer" button. This should return you to main menu.
    Pain doesn't tell you when you ought to stop. Pain is the little voice in your head that tries to hold you back because it knows if you continue you will change. Don't let it stop you from being who you can be. Exhaustion tells you when you ought to stop. You only reach your limit when you can go no further.

    Do you think an employer wants to hear "So when's the latest i can say yes?" or "I'm currently try to make the best business decision"?

    If you just ask for a dead line, do you really think the employer is going to think anything other than he's looking at other options?

    Any employer who doesn't think a potential job seeker has multiple interviews going is naive. Its just not something you shout about.

    Lots of people accept offer then then change their minds later, you may even be able to get a higher salary if they really want you and you play them against each other. Luckily you can get your 2nd interview done sooner rather than later.

    Take the drug test. If you delay taking the drug test they might think you are trying to make sure you're clean first. If they think you are dodging the drug test you wouldn't get an offer to begin with...

    Just tell them you have another interview tomorrow and you will be getting back to them later in the week. I would say be honest and offer to take the drug test to show you are not trying to wait on a clean sample.

    Well I already bought a week by asking to come in and meet again to full flesh out everything. He told me today to email him soon with my decision. I said I just needed to go home and talk it over with my family but that I was seriously interested.

    And to those saying "give 2 weeks notice". I've been unemployed for 2 months and he knows it so I can't use that excuse. Like I said the drug test takes about a week so I could always accept it then cancel but I'd rather not.

    Yea this is what I've been worried about. Last drug I used was pot about 2 years ago. I would openly accept a hair test if they wanted but I know they wont. I'm afraid they'll think I'm dodging though lol.

    Accept job offer. If second offer is better then take it and quit the first job, if not, reject it and keep the first job.

    What is the position ?

    What is the pay ?

    Please elaborate.
