I am not one for patience (as if you all didn't know that already LOL!). So I called my HR contact just a min ago. Her super just came back from vacation today. I said Oh, I thought she was coming back yesterday (I made sure to keep my sweetest, most humble tone of voice possible.) She said the super was supposed to come back yesterday but didn't. Now, in private business, if I've told someone that I would get back to them on a given day, I call them on that day even if I have to tell them that I have to wait longer to give them the info they are waiting for. Sooooo......she told me it would probably be tomorrow. The super has the file and "has to verify everything and sign off on it". I told her that there are people here other than just me that need to know this decision and I have put them off about as long as I can so if she could just let me know which direction it was going, it would be a big help. I asked if I could speak to the super and she kind of blew around that. She said her super had my file, was going over everything and was trying to catch up and repeated what she'd just said. (She sounds like a very young and inexperienced girl.) I said well, obviously, if the clearance didn't come thru then I won't get the position, so do you know if the clearance went thru? And she said "no, I don't know". The ONLY good thing from this dragging out so long is that if I get the job, it pushes my window of time to get out there farther into next year. Still, of course, I can only afford to saty here unemployed so long and I won't be able to stay in this house forever.
