Hiring managers alert πŸ“’ question for you

When you found your candidate and send the final offer, do you mind that the candidate "sits on it" and waits for the due date to sign? Is that a red flag 🚩?

If the candidate intend to sign, but just takes the time to do so.

I don't see that as a red flag at all. I imagine they are evaluating different options, as any good salesperson should. If you really really want them, give them an offer that they can't refuse

I agree with this. However I’d be remiss if I didn’t bring up The Godfather 🍷

I personally find this a bit annoying. πŸ˜‚ Same concept of when you send over a contract and someone has authority to sign but they don’t until the very last second. Brings out all my insecurities and makes me wonder why they wait.

I get what your saying but think of it as them just doing their due-diligence. You don't want someone to sign blindly. They should be able to go through all the terms in the contract before they have to sign. I always ask for more time to go over the offer before I sign

If you make an offer, I would at least let them have 72 hours to overthink it and discuss it with their close friends/familyΒ

I have a related question. How often do reps negotiate the OTE?
