Offer With No Face-To-Face Interview?
I recently had phone interviews with the hiring manager and the COO of a small IT/services company that holds a lucrative long-term government contract. Neither interview was a behavioral interview but, as I mentioned previously, the first one was a lot of the hiring manager telling me specifically why I was great for the job. The COO interview was similar.
I closed with the COO and he said he'd send me an offer letter in the next couple of days!
That being said, I follow Horstman's Law of "until you got somethin', you got nothin'." This still brings up some questions. Notably, should I be worried about a company that courted me to the point they've been almost selling themselves to me and is now talking about an offer without meeting me once? Or should I just be flattered?
I've checked up on the hiring manager and COO and both have significant industry and management experience. In other words, this isn't their first time doing the hiring game. I've been working with them for the past six months (again, never met anyone face to face) and was asked for my resume for the job.
Should I be looking a potential gift horse in the mouth?
