Smart Phone Etiquette

Is the person supposed to call to tell you if you got the job or not?

I recently completed a job interview on Monday and an observation time on Wednesday. The lady who interviewed me said that she would call me on Friday. It is now Saturday and I haven’t heard anything. My question is, is the person supposed to call you to tell you that you didn’t get the job. Also I want to know what is proper phone etiquette when trying to get a hold of the person…I have already called once and was sent to her voice mail I left a message saying has she talked to the person I observed…so should I keep trying once a day until I get in contact with her.
I also emailed her to thank her for interviewing me and in the email I very casually wrote “i hope i am offered a job at such a wonderful establishment” Do you think this was a smart thing to do? Please help me I am freaking out I really want this job.

I agree with the people who are saying that usually the person who is offered a job gets the call. I hope that’s not the case in your situation because you clearly show enthusiasm for it. You’d be surprised how many people don’t even send a thank you note of any kind! I would not call again in case she was sick, on vacation or too busy to make all of her calls on Friday.

That said, she may not share your good attitude. She doesn’t need to acknowledge your thank you email but she definitely should address your voicemail. She can call or email you with an explanation. If not, I’d be concerned about whether she has any respect whatsoever. If she’s good, she’ll make sure you know where you stand.
