I did the PST 2 days ago and haven't received the verdict yet.

Does the result first go through HR, who then contact you?

Hi,

yes, HR will contact you both if PST went good or not. It can take up to 3/4 weeks, but normally you will know in a few days. Next week you could contact an HR officer if you do not have responses yet.

Best,

Antonello

Hi,

In most cases, you should hear back in a couple of days. If it lasts more than a week, you can give a call to HR.

Best,

Hi Anonymous,

the exact timeline depends on the office – in my case I got results right after the test. The average is probably around a week, I would contact HR after that for additional information if needed.

Best,

Francesco
