Any experiences? Especially magic/silver circle firms. Waiting on two; last tuesday, and last wednesday. This is without doing a vacation scheme at either firm, I should add.

Thanks.

Just wondering how long it takes for HR to get back with a decision, post training contract interview, in general.

There is no universal answer. Let us know which firms you are talking about and we may be able to share our experiences.

Oh ok. Well I can't really help there, just thought this might be some interesting legal thread involving ll.

From mine and many of my friends' experiences:

S&M: May take 7-10 days (i.e. don't panic if you haven't heard).

Links: If they don't call within 48 hours it's usually a no.

Looks like at least one is a no, then. Oh well, what can you do. But do they not need to contact referees, etc, if they are planning on giving you an offer?

Links don't contact referees until you've accepted their offer. The offer is made subject to a decent set of references. I believe a fair few firms do it this way.

Good luck anyway.

Ha, that's fair enough i guess. But yeah, have been waiting at least two full working days, so I guess thats a no. Thanks though.

EDIT: Is this the same for both vacation schemes and TC interviews, in your experience?

I wouldn't be too concerned. It can take firms awhile to respond. This will particularly be the case if you have applied a long time before relevant deadlines, which you appear to have done

Thanks. But I heard from sources other than JCB that Linklaters usually reply by phone within 48 hours (obviously excluding weekends) after the date of interview. So, finishing on thursday evening, that would mean that at least 48 have elapsed, plus the additional six or so we've had today. Plus I think I flunked individual parts of the day; the Watson-Glaser test, etc, plus missing the most obvious examples on the case study. PM me if you want any details...

Can't comment on Linklaters as I didn't apply there. I wouldn't worry too much though. There are all sorts of false rumours floating around about different firms. Best of luck.
