I am looking for a new job and a recruiter contacted me about one. The recruiter works for a well known recruiting agency and was hired by a company trying to fill a position. I find things have been moving too fast or have been filling up too much of my schedule. I've had 3 days in a row doing some sort of interview or some sort of test for this job opening. Last Friday the recruiter called me asking when I'm free for another interview. I now realize I should have answered differently but I told her two days that I am almost entirely free. Since it's the weekend I haven't heard back from the recruiter and I can't make any plans for these days since I'm not sure yet when the interview will be. How should I have answered the recruiters question? Should I call or email them Monday morning letting them now my schedule has filled in a bit since the last conversation? In general I find unexpected phone calls asking for this kind of information don't work well for me because I'm not looking at my calendar.
What is a reasonable timeline for events from first interview to starting work? I once had a job offer that expected me to start working the next work day. While I don't want to over generalize from this one data point, it turned out the company was extremely disorganized.
