Why hasn't target called me in for my orientation?

Category: Marketing & Sales


I did both the background check and drug test but still haven't gotten a call back. What's taking them so long I don't do drugs nor am I a criminal. Should I call them or be patient and wait like the lady said. Anyone have any similar situations like this?


Relax. This takes time. Remember, you are not their #1 priority. The hiring managers are busy and they probably have to go through a lot of protocol to get someone hired. Why don't you call back and tell them how excited you are to start and you were hoping to get an update? In addition, they might be coordinating the other hires and their training. There might be a lot of good reasons as to the reason for the delay.

If you want an update, make the call.


Sometimes it takes 3-5 business days to process background checks and drug screens (usually the background checks take the longest) if it has been longer than that call them and ask to check on your status.


How long has it been? If more than 2 weeks since you talked to them, call them, otherwise wait.
