Just curious as to setting my own expectations regarding verbal job offers. I was given a verbal job offer earlier in the month pending references checking out,etc. Just curious how long background checks are taking during the pandemic(in California)until you get the formal job offer letter? I've checked with my references who let me know they provided great references a week ago. I also realize people aren't in the office to sign off,etc. I'm a little antsy as I've gotten burned in the past where I was expecting to start a certain date and it took 2 months for the background check to happen and the company never let me know there was going to be a delay( pre-pandemic a few years back) .
Thank you so much for your input, and have a great weekend!
