How long does a hiring process take?

#sodexo # followup #hiringprocess #interviewadvice

So I am an ex employee first time member with the giant company Sodexo. I am trying to figure out the hiring process since i am fairly still new with the company from the previous job I worked for with them...

They said on August 3rd that this job at the City of Hope in Duarte, CA I applied for and had an interview with the H.R. manager and food service manager. They said they would give me a chance to be hired as long as I passed a backround check. Now this is my first rodeo with an official backround check, this company ACHECK does the investigation. So when I received feedback on the copy before it was submitted to SODEXO, I noticed I had an unwanted unknown warrent I didn't know I had.

So i went to court to handle that issue and cleared it, emailed and informed sodexo's corporate security and corrected the issue also by calling ACHECK.

I feel like this process is the longest i ever experienced. I am on the edge of my seat politely and anxiously sending out curtious concerning emails every 4-5 days showing high interest and still wondering WHAT THE HECK IS TAKING SO DAMN LONG?!?!?!

Anyways lol sorry for the long rant. Just in my head a lil too deep and could use some positive feedback, advice or opinions. Just wondering if anybody else gone through this issue and seeing if this IS normally how the process goes and what not...does it seriously take a month or more?

Ugh so frustrated and anxious lol how can someone tell you you're suitable for a job opportunity then not be up to date with keeping you informed at all? I feel like I'm bugging...but i need this job?! Omg lol so confused. Sigh

Hi Rebecca,

Background checks are tricky because companies are never transparent about what specific items they’re focused in on during the investigation. I think it’s safe to say that any changes made to a record during the company's investigation will automatically result in a delay in most cases which may lead hiring managers to pursue other candidates. Lack of response to your emails and phone calls is typically not a good sign.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but you sound laser focused in on this job opportunity so I want to be as honest as possible with the feedback I provide you, based on my personal experience, to help you set appropriate expectations. Employer silence is typically not a good sign. Identifying and resolving that item on your record was positive takeaway from this experience so far but don not put all your employment hopes on this job.
