My interview started with Oracle Health Science, Bangalore on 09-Mar-2016. Below given are dates of my interview process flow: 09-Mar-2016: Started the interview process (1 Written + 3 F2F). 15-Mar-2016: Completed another 2 F2F rounds of interview. 17-Mar-2016: HR confirmed on my selection and told me to apply for the job on taleo. 28-Mar-2016: Director called and finalized the salary verbally. Also told me it may take 2-3 weeks for approval. 12-Apr-2016: I called up the Director to know the status but he told about the hiring freeze and wait until June 1ST week to get your offer. On taleo the status is still showing as "Under Review". I am not able to get a clarity if they are still evaluating other candidates or really they have a hiring freeze! In this case, should I keep hope for them to come back?
