I received a written job offer complete with salary and start date one week ago. I was told by the recruiter that I would receive emails concerning background check and other things concerning my on boarding process. My start date is two weeks from now. I have yet to hear anything from the HR coordinator. When I contacted my recruiter, he stated that “she must be really busy right now”. I wanted to give two weeks notice to my job, but I’m not doing that until I get things started with an on boarding process. I don’t want to be overly Aggressive since my start date is still two weeks away, but I am still concerned. What should I be doing? #interview #jobsearch #advice #hr

Have done almost everything

Sadly that should tell you the kind of company that they are and you should probably look elsewhere for a better job

Make sure this job offer is not a .scam. Call the Corporate office and verify the person you spoke to is actually employed by the company.

I am so sorry. I do not have an HR coordinator. I am not interested in the job. I am make a move to Pennsylvania so unless there are more job opportunities out there for me. I have to sadly decline the offer.

As an HR professional, I can tell you, unless you live or lived in New York state, a background shouldn't take more than 24-48 hours. If I were changing Jobs, I would make sure I had a signed offer letter before I gave notice to my current employer. Hope this helps.

Dave Smith, It has been almost a month since your original post. Do you have an update on your situation?

Profile under construction. Check back soon!

Bottom Line Up Front - Depending on what type of recruiter you worked with - good luck getting anything from the recruiter. Some recruiters only deal with putting "butts in seats" for interviews. That is absolutely it. Keep words "some recruiters". If you have already signed a LOA "letter of acceptance" and it has been more than 2-3 business days since you have not heard anything as much "thank you - more details to follow" you have every right to get on the phone and ask for an update. If you haven't heard anything back within that 2-3 business day timeframe after you signed a LOA, I would highly suggest you review what PII (personal identification information) you have provided the company, as well as your recruiter. Once reviewed, take appropriate action on bank accounts, credit cards, etc.
