Candidate accepted offer but won’t set start date!!!
If a candidate I nonresponsive how long must you wait before rescinding an offer? I work for a well-known company that requires a clearance to support the project and the individual received an offer letter, which he accepted. The individual went thru the clearance process, received the clearance, and when I called to set the start date he has been unresponsive to calls and e-mails. The one conversation I did have with him he told me he had another offer and needs to decide. How long do we have to give him? Several HR individuals say we can’t rescind until he declines the position. He accepted the offer but is being non-responsive to use in regards to setting a start date… How long can we be expected to “wait” for this person to decide to start? It’s been over two weeks already. I can’t believe that we just have to wait forever for this person to decide to start, which he may never do.
