    @KateByDesign:  I totally think he got it!! I’m not HR bee, but in my experience, when it comes to the decision stage and you didn’t get it, they’ll send you a rejection letter than asking you for some more time to talk.

    @KateByDesign:  I work in HR and I think they want to make him an offer but don’t mark my words, some people operate differently. lol My rationale is that they wouldn’t make him waste his time to come in just to turn him down.

    I don’t think they’d waste time prolonging it if he didn’t get the job.  I think he got it!

    @KateByDesign:  He got it. When my fiance got his job offer, they called and asked him to come into the office, rather than offering the job over the phone. They wanted to explain the offer in detail, and felt they couldn’t over the phone.

    I think what’s happening to you is a variation of that. Instead of a phone call, it’s an email. And instead of a trip to the office, it’s a phone appointment. 

    Either way, it’s sounding really, really good!

    Usually if it’s a rejection they will just call or send a letter/email, they rarely schedule an actual time for it. It sounds to me like they are calling to give him a verbal offer. Good luck to your husband!

    I agree with everyone else, I’m sure he got the job.  In my past experience, every single time I have been offerred a job it has worked this way that they setup a time to discuss.  If I ever get rejected for a job, it’s usually via email.  Good luck!

    I’ve actually been called for a rejection once.  The woman really liked me and wanted to personally tell me no.  It’s probably a yes – usually you can tell based on tone (I’ve accurately predicted my current yes and that no), but it’s not a guarantee sorry.  And they could be asking to call your references or some other such thing.

    @KateByDesign:  I am a hiring manager. I always call either way, whether someone is successful or not (once we are in the final stages that is). I have also received a call that I thought would be an offer and it was a decline.

    I wouldn’t assume anything until he gets a written offer. Verbal is nothing nowadays.
