I was interviewed for this big company for an entry-level position back in Feb. Got to the interview with the manager and got an email telling me congratulations and the HR will help me with the succeeding steps. But then a week after they emailed I'm kept for future consideration.
Then in May, the manager texted me if I'm still interested and I said yes and then she interviewed me again and then the HR asked me to go to her office and is offering me the job. I asked when the start date is.. she said I'll know the start date once I say my end date on m current job. I said I'll text her what my decision is.. few hrs later I said yes, and then I talked to my boss and said I will resign.
The next day I got worried, because I already resigned and haven't signed anything yet. I talked to the HR personally and told them that I'm stressed out and I need reassurance that I really got the job. She said they were processing my papers already, and I'd be able to sign probably around end of June.
I texted her my end date a week after. She said "ok thanks this is noted". On June 30, I texted her and ask what the status of my processing papers thing and she replied that the agency will contact me within this week for the requirements. So I'm reassured again.. twice.
But now I am still worried. It's Friday already, and my end date is July 15.
I understand that they're a big company, and I guess they're super busy, but it's hard not to worry.
So my question is, if you get a verbal offer and said yes, they don't necessarily have already the contract available right away, right? So can it be normal to take a LONG time for you to sign your contract?
