I was a little put off by PDM's call because 1. I still don't have an offer and I think they were just assuming I was getting the job but I felt uncomfortable with that assumption given that NAJ still hasn't contacted me at all, and 2. because PDM seemed just a little too excited for me and made me want to ask "um, don't you want me to stay"? When they inquired if I was excited I said "Well, yes it's a great job but at the same time I just want to know what all my options are before getting too excited about anything". PDM said they understood but "still it's great to have an offer" (um.. I don't have an F'n offer!!!)
I'm interested in hearing any opinions regarding how worried I should be about how long this job offer has been in the works. My phone interview with them was about 2 months ago, my in person interview was 2 weeks ago. Before that I had sent in my application 1.5 months before they contacted me for the phone interview.
Should I at all be worried about taking a position with a company that takes this long (and who knows how much longer) to fill a position they claim they have a "desperate need to fill?" The delays make me wonder if there will be other aspects of this job that carry on for an incredibly long time. Should I worry about some bureaucratic process or inefficiency? Can I ask them about this without sounding condescending or insulting them?
Oh, and my cell phone just rang with an unknown #, I didn't pick it up because I didn't know the #. Then it went to voice mail and rang again so this time I picked it up in case it was NAJ calling.... it was a wrong number. Bastard!!
