How bad is that to hear after a pretty good job interview? My SO had one a couple weeks ago and he called to ask the status and got the above response. I told my mom and she says it’s ok because they have certain requirements for how long to have a job open and how many people to interview (it’s a gov’t funded mental health agency) so they don’t get sued for hiring too quickly.
I’m just wondering how realistic my mom’s advice was and if it might actually be bad news to hear that from a company?

It is actually very realistic, minus the sueing part…at least in Canada. I know in Canada for government interviews/job you could be wait up to a year to hear back from them. Most people here back in 1-6 months but it really depends on the job in the government. Jobs with less responsibility you usually hear back from quicker than jobs with lots of responsibilities that they have to background check you for, etc.
I wish him luck with whatever he picks.
