A colleague applied for a management job at a large national organization — 2 months ago. Aside from a form email acknowledging receipt of his application, he hasn’t heard a word.
There’s information about the organization here. Were I in this position, I’d be wondering:
What does this say about how this organization makes decisions?
Is the speed of this process typical?
Are the managers in this organization pushed to the wall for time?
How does this organization treat the “wait state” and what effect does that have on interdepartmental and external relationships?
Is “hurry up and wait” a pattern in this organization?
How does this organization treat people?
Every organization reveals something about its culture in the hiring process. You just have to look.
