I have been interviewing this past month for a 3 month paid internship this summer. After a phone interview, I did 2 in-person interviews. Almost 2 weeks later on a Friday, HR finally calls me and tells me I got the position and to let them know by Monday. On Monday (May 12), I kindly accept the position. HR lady says "wonderful" and starts the background check and tells me she'll confirm my June 2nd start date upon clearing of background check. They used a 3rd party and when I filled out the form I selected to have the results emailed to me as well. By Thursday morning (May 15), the check was complete and clear... I even double checked with the 3rd party company.
It is now Tuesday (may 20) and HR have not returned my call or email about a completed background check and start date. Even more strangely, the internship is relisted on the careers section of their site? Perhaps they could be looking for an extra intern but still this makes no sense to me. Why they wouldn't get back to me at all, especially when they wanted me to start June 2nd?
