Where were they for the last 2 months?

I interviewed for a job in April. It was at a grocery store during the height of the pandemic. The inverviewer said they were "desperate" for more cashiers, stockers, and online order packers. I didn't hear from them again until today, when they called me and asked if I was still interested in the job. What took them so long to get back to me?

    Maybe the fact that some people have to stop for a certain amount of time and the pandemic.

    You were not obviously their first choice--and so they didn't get back to you immediately. But whoever was their first choice either didn't work out, or didn't want the job--so they went back to their pool of applicants. Very common and pretty normal behavior.

    You weren't the other applicant & maybe you don't have the qualifications they're looking for.

    They were probably backdooring all the applications as you know, but all there best options ran out and now are depending on less attractive options

    They probably had many applications and are going through the list.  They may have employees going back to school (real or on line) so they need to fill positions now.

     Another possibility is if any of the staff became ill and they are off or furloughed due to the virus if they are on Unemployment they may not want to come back because they are making more while on unemployment than they made while working.

    Perhaps you were their reserve candidate' another member of staff has left and they chose you as replacement rather than readvertise and reinterview.

    Maybe they were looking for someone better?

    Because there were 300 people in front of you.

    Either they froze hiring during the shutdown, or their first choice didn’t work out.
