        Flexible work schedule with managers that were focused on performance goals


        We had to be in the office and since were on the phone most of the day we very rarely interacted with anyone in our office, so there wasn’t a good reason why we couldn’t work remotely.

      Senior Sales Recruiter

      15 Red Flags That You’re Interviewing at a Toxic Company (


      Project Manager

      I interviewed at new company for the same role I currently do, so I have all the skills they need and more. I went through 5 stages of interviews, including pp in person and final 1 was on Friday over week ago. I was expecting to have news by last Friday. No news, so I emailed them last Friday asking for indication when can I expect the results,but we have Tuesday evening today, and no one emailed me back. This is the 1st time I have to wait so long after final interview for news-Should I worry?

      How long to typically hear back from a mid-sized company (200-300 people) after an initial interview? Their internal recruiter told me “a few days” and it’s been a week. Interview went very well (I thought!) Thinking of following up on Thursday if I don’t hear.
