I interviewed for a job about 4 weeks ago, and had a second round interview 3 weeks ago. Then I got the job offer from the interviewer 2 weeks ago. Since then, we talked about my employment package, and the contract was supposed to be written up last week. But it wasn't written up last week.
On Monday of this week, I asked if the contract was getting written.
On Tuesday same thing.
Same thing today on Wednesday.
The interviewer tells me that the contract will be exactly what we discussed, but he does not appreciate that I have to relocate, get relocation budgeted and scheduled, and need to actually see the contract I am agreeing to. Also I do not want to notify my current employers until I sign the contract with the new employer, so I am not giving my current employers as much notification time as I might have done. The interviewer who hired me for new position does not seem to appreciate this problem either. Sadly, my current job has even more problems than this new job seems to have.
Is there anything I can do in this situation? I don't want to press the issue when I have little-to-no bargaining power with new employer.
Thanks for your advice and responses below. This is in the United States, by the way. I am on one coast and the new job is on the other coast.
