Hey there,

I have interviewed more than 170 candidates that went through the Imbellus.

1. The span they heard back after the test was between 1 day and 13 days. The median was around 6 or 7 days I believe.

2. Should not be a bad sign.

Fingers crossed!

Cheers,
Florian

Hello,

At the moment I do not try anymore to make forecasts on the duration of feedback from consulting firms because every time I am wrong :)

Because of the crisis, it has become extremely random, sometimes they continue to be reactive and give feedback within a week, other times it takes an incredibly long time.

Good luck, I know that the wait is sometimes painful.

Around a week, but just like with any test, application, etc. forget about it the moment you walk out the door. There's no use in worrying...enjoy life while you wait.

Hi there,

Usually it’s up to several weeks. After 2 weeks I recommend you call HR and ask for any feedback.

Do you need any further help?

All the best,
