My friend got a verbal offer from one company last Tuesday (Sept 29) and they said the formal letter will be sent in a couple days. He sent them an email on Friday asking whether they had sent it and he had missed it and that he had another offer he had to decide on. The HR responded saying 'It is in que to be sent out to you'. He hasn't got it yet (note that this office operates in California time zone). The verbal offer said the deciding deadline was 15 Oct.
Anyone had a similar experience? I asked this on reddit and another individual said he/she was in the same situation with VMware - they had been accepted for the same position. The program is the University Launch program. Just wanting to know if this is normal or is it something to be worried about
Edit: He got the letter late afternoon yesterday (Thurs Oct 8)
