    How long does it usually take for the employer to call after an interview?

    I had a job interview the day before yesterday. It's 9:40 a.m. here now. Can I give up the hope or is there still a chance they might call?

    Are you talking about highly skilled jobs that might require a lot of thought in the recruitment process? This is a menial factory job. I was one of about 20 people that was interviewed that day. It said in the ad they were going to hire 20 people. On the first interview we were about 150 people. So I went on to the second interview.

    It can take a while. Also, it is never wrong to call them and ask how it's looking (don't do it now yet but you could call on friday) as employers like it when the candidates show interest.

    If it's more than a week call for a follow up. Sometimes they are slow, sometimes they are quick. All depends on how many interviewed, HR etc.

    Depends on the job. Usually in two weeks, they will call you. Some companies don't like people to follow up for an interview. That is why it is important to know someone who works in said company. 9/10 times you will get the job if that is the case.

    I waited for a month before I got the job I have now.

    Should be pretty quick, might take a couple days though.

    First job out of college they took 3 weeks to respond after I sent resume, 2 weeks after i interviewed to let me know I was the final candidate, 2 separate delays due to H.R. issues, had first day of work over 2.5 months after I submitted my resume. I'm pretty sure towards the last week or so my parents began to suspect I had made the job up to keep them off my back after graduation.

    Did nothing but play video games, get up at 2 pm, lift, and bang my gf for those 2.5 months though, was living the dream.

    For professional jobs, if you don't hear from Human Resources, or the recruiter, in a day, means you didn't get it.

    Hiring decisions are made immediately after evaluation by the hiring manager. HR simply processes the paperwork (offer).

    What? I'm going to have to disagree. Can often take far longer, see above.

    Often times they are interviewing multiple candidates and have to squeeze the interviews in during the normal business day when they are already busy, many places take a week just to get 3-4 interviews in. When I interviewed for the job I mentioned in my post it was a panel of 3 people, 2 of whom were PhD's, they can't exactly take all day off just to interview people.

    Both parents are M.D.'s and healthcare executives, dad was a serial job jumper for awhile, hiring process always took several weeks even when he was the only candidate, flying him in, ski trips, multiple panels, salary negotiations, lawyers reviewing contracts and severance packages, etc.

    Even after all of that would wait a week+ to hear back if it got board of directors approval.
