How long should I wait to follow up after this interview?
I had an interview today for a sales clerk position for a chain store. The interview went ok, I was (pretty obviously) nervous but friendly and gave the best answers I could. The interviewer seemed positive and made friendly comments on some of my answers. Afterwards she said she would "try" to set up a second interview with another supervisor. I agreed gladly but they never gave me a time frame they would contact me in. Should I worry about this? Is it grounds that they might not call me in for that second interview at all, or am I worrying unnecessarily? How long should I give before I call to inquire about it? As a side note, what should I expect in the second interview? The first one was entirely about previous job experiences. Will it be along the same lines?
