In my experience (interviewing), I’ve always been notified one way or another after an interview.  Sometimes that took over a week, in those instances I was usually emailed letting me know the position had been filled already.  If you were one of many they had to interview, they may need time to interview the rest of the people and then make a decision.  Also, if they offer the job to someone else, they won’t notify other applicants until that person officially accepts the offer.

Did you send a follow-up letter, thanking them for the interview?  I’d wait to follow up with anybody until at least next week if you did, if you didn’t I’d consieder sending one ASAP.  I got a second interview with a company because I sent the thank you note highlighting some attributes I had that weren’t discussed in my first interview.

When I was interviewing for jobs, most of them did not contact me if I did not get the job. (Or sometimes for government jobs I would get an email or letter several weeks later informing me that they had hired someone else.) I would send an email sometime next week and thank them for taking the time to interview you and ask them if they have made a decision yet. I don’t think it’s bad to ask. I did this a few times, and although they informed me that they did not pick me, at least I knew and could get on with my job search. They should understand that you need to know.

I have always been called or sent a letter either way. I think they would let you know some how. Good luck!

You’ll probably get a rejection form letter if it is a No. Or an email. I’ve never gotten a “no” via phone.

I almost never get a rejection notice after interviewing (even in person — multiple times!).

I’d say if you DON’T hear from them give them a call. Some places get shady about telling you “no” which I don’t understand – it’s just a potential job, it’s not like we’re breaking up.

True story, I had multiple interviews that went fantastically. Then I let something slip about my wedding (because I would have started a month or so before). The interviewer told me I’d get a call the next day to interview with her boss but NOTHING. I followed up the next week and couldn’t get a straight answer on when they’d make a decision. Finally they sent me an email saying they’d gone with another candidate (and I never had been interviewed by the boss). I swear it’s because they thought I was going to take off a ton of time for the wedding and/or get pregnant right after.

Good Luck, I had to take a really crappy job last year which was a payscale down and I know how hard it is.

I second crayfish. I’ve never gotten a “no” on the phone either, just a rejection letter in the mail. In contrast, every offer I have gotten has been via phone.

I work at a company where we contact EVERYONE about the job.  If you send in a resume you will get a response even if we don’t interview you (a thanks for applying but…) But we are a rarity, I’m gathering from this thread. 

Good luck finding a job!

responses have depended on how far i was in the interviewing process. if it was a first interview, i never received a call back for a no., but i have received an email after inquiring about the progress. however, when i was in a second interview or one of the last candidates, then i received a call either way. the no calls are tough but they happen. hopefully you’ll hear back soon!
