Interviewed yesterday for a company, about 3 hours afterwards, the HR person I've been in contact with sent me their benefits brochure. Its just like a 2-page information sheet, not like a full in-depth employee information packet or anything.

I didn't ask about benefits at all in the interview and they sent it to me before I even had the chance to send them a thank-you email. So, is this a good sign that the interview went well and they liked me or is this something that companies usually do? I was under the impression that benefits aren't really discussed until an offer is made, but not sure. I'm excited but don't want to get my hopes up. Thanks!

    Don't read to much into this. They are just telling you more about their benefits. Aug 6, 2021 at 14:05

    Probably either a standard (i.e. everyone gests this, whatever happens), or a mistake. I agree with @JustanotherJavaprogrammer : don't read much into that.

There is no way to tell, it could be their usual policy, or a mistake, or they intend to offer you the job.


It's definitely not a bad sign.

    Pretty much. It can be neutral or good, but there's not really a way for it to be a bad sign.

Companies don't like to give false hope, or waste time.

It is a good sign


It is a good sign, but the only sure thing of progress in the recruitment process is an offer letter / contract


It is very unusual for a hiring manager or recruiter to send any benefits related information to a prospect without prompting. Most likely, it was a mistake or an automated process, although it could be a sign that they are interested but have not yet formed a formal offer. I would lean towards it being "insignificant" rather than being a positive sign of any intent.
