Last night I got a callback from the company. he apologized that he hadn’t called me during the day, but he’d been in meetings all day.
I asked for clarification on his statement in the email, and he said that he didn’t want to leave bad feelings between us over their response. he said they thought my letter was an all of nothing, not a step in negotiations.
He told me that the VP will be back up Thursday and Friday, and since Thursday was mostly meetings, that they would likely give me a call Friday to discuss things with me, and do some verbal negotiations.
So now I get to ponder my true feelings for this company.
