I applied for three jobs.. (Blockbuster, Winn Dixie and Eckerd) if ya'll dont know what they are just ask..I won't mind explaining..
Anyways...I gave them my application on Friday and all..I dont expect them to call today or anything (I wish though), but how long does it usually take 'em to call back?

    How long's a piece of string?

    It's hard to be specific, as even different branches of the same company may respond in different timescales.
    Some don't at all.

    B&Q phoned me back within a day (they were short staffed), whereas somewhere else (forgot where <IMG SRC="rolleyes.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> ) took a month.

    Good luck <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> You got a point...
    It said on one of the applications it might take up to 30 days...
    Grr, why must I be so impatient? hehe...thanks for your reply though, Peace.

    It varies:

    At Wax Lyrical it took 4 days

    At Marks and Spencer it took 1 week, and then after they told me I got the job they didn't get back in touch for a whole month (and only after I telephoned head ofice to complain that they had given me a job but refused to actually let me work it!

    The people at Evans didn't get back to me! (they did after I complained!)

    The place I work now took one week

    It vaies, so don't worry about it if you never hear from them again, they don't know what they're missin! <IMG SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    :rolleyes: Well I don't really know it depends on how many application forms they have I mean ring and ask or something if your wanting to know your result.
    But how long have you been waiting, it does take time sometimes employers don't even bother contacting you I should know I went to thousands of interviews and some didn't bother or they did like a month later in a letter saying poooo. but they may get back to you they may not be patient But good luck hope they call you soon keep looking for more jobs and your get one in the end byeeeeeeeeeeee
