What is an acceptable time frame...?

  1. for contemplating a job offer?

    A position was 'officially' extended to me last night, and I asked for time to consider it and get back to HR.

    What do you guys think?

    I might like to take this position, but I'm interviewing at hospital #2 today, and hospital #3 early next week.

    For me personally I would not wait longer than a week. They have a position to fill and may lose their other applicants if you take too long and then turn it down.

    I think within one week is acceptable -- I understand where you are & wanting to check out your options. Good luck.
    How early next week is the last interview? I'd go to that, and take a day to really hash it out, and then call them.

    But the others are right, about a week. They will not wait forever, and they do have a position to fill.
