I cleared all the interview. They asked for pay slip .2yrs variable details in my current organisation. Then negotiation happened. They initiated BGV for me and told me background verification will take 8 days to 1 month to complete. After 8 days when I called HR and my recruiting manager,both told suddenly hiring freeze happened there and my offer put on hold and my application is pending with top management in California. so it may take around 2 months to release the offer. Now I am very sad as I invested my time for interviews on the cost of my preparation for CAT. I am feeling very depressed. Guys please tell what is the chance that they will get back to me once this so called hiring freeze gets offer. Is 'hiring freeze' an excuse for them.
