DH Thinks Things Went Well

February 25th, 2017 at 07:30 pm

DH's job interview went really well. It was a four person interview so it turns out going down was a much better decision than doing a phone interview. They sent him 3 follow up questions by email when he got home and would like them answered by Tuesday. DH is going to work on them this weekend and so he can have them waiting for them on Monday to show promptness and meeting a deadline early.

Turns out that the job would not be located where they are, but will be moving about a series of temporary offices as each section of the work is completed. He would probably only have to go to the main office once a month for a meeting.

They are hiring for 4 different jobs, same position, and it sounds like one of them is perfect for DH's experience, though he could do all of them. They said he would hear back from them either way in a week and a half to two weeks.

They were very happy that DH was able to come in immediately for an interview, too. He applied on Monday, they called him on Thursday, and he interviewed Friday. DH feels the interview went very well for the most part, though his mind blanked right at the very beginning. Fortunately he was able to get through it and things went smoothly after that.

This would be a very good company for him to work for. Everything I have ever heard about how they are as employers is good. They have great benefits and a stock purchase option that is not available to the general public, but is to employees. I have wanted to buy stock in this company for two decades. Once you have it you can DRIP it even if you are no longer employed so can't buy more. But this company would be an excellent one to stay with.

They haven't mentioned salary, but won't unless he gets hired. But we know the typical salary for the position and it would be enough to live on and allow us to start paying my mother again. And build our Emergency Fund back up again, and start saving our money towards a down payment again, and DH could start taking one class at a time online for his Bachelor's Degree.

I would really appreciated prayers these next two weeks for DH to get this job. It would be so perfect now that we know the details. I know I will be praying hard.

    Just a small FYI, I went on at least 20, if not more, job interviews while unemployed for 6 months in 2014. I was ALWAYS told I would hear from them, either way. I heard from two of them.

    Even the job I landed did that to some extent. I first interviewed in mid-August, didn't get a call back for a 2nd interview until late September. I was offered the job the week before Thanksgiving.

    Good luck. I don't wish this situation on anyone. EVER.

    Kaycee--With this company, I think they'll keep their word. They have an extremely good reputation with that sort of thing. He's only had one company say this and they did let him know. He's had another company who didn't say it tell him as well. I know some companies are quite bad about it, though.
