The standard is usually 1 week, but with a holiday situation give them the benefit of the doubt and wait until after the New Year.

Darling Husband waited just over a month for his formal offer, for him it was the time in doing the background checks as the company is overly thorough.  It also just may be that they don’t want to put anyone on until the New Year.  Just makes it easier with the paperwork and accounting side of things.

I got my offer letter 3 weeks after my verbal hire. My verbal came right before the holidays last year, and my letter came about Jan. 10.
