What does it mean when HR says we sent your application to the manager?

    I was trying to understand their hiring process.
    In the auto email they said if your application passes our initial assessment we will contact you
    In their site they say
    Allow us 2-3 weeks to make a decision and we will notify you if we accept or reject your application
    Then I tried to call and HR said your application was sent to the manager I don’t know what will happen you might get an interview
    I feel confused. What does it mean? Is there a chance to deny my application or to get an interview?

    It's the head of the department that has the real say on whether or not you can get the job. Not the HR lady. She brings him/her your CV, the manager reads it and then the paper goes to their inner base of human resources, if you don't fit. If that man thinks you are a worthy candidate, he orders the HR to arrange an interview with you.

    Means they are seeing whether a manager needs someone with your qualifications, abilities, etc., and/or is willing to take you on. I would consider it a positive thing.

    I am not sure if I should email HR and ask them if its possible to get in touch with the hiring manager. I applied September 24th. LOL I think they will smell desperation:p

    I emailed HR for an update and they said we will get back to you within three business days. Did they reject me yet? LOL

    They are a waste of time. Apparently the rule of two weeks is correct. If a job wants you you will hear from them. They still say the same thing. Waste of time.

    By now it seems like they did not select you for interview, but the usual process for most businesses would be to short list the applications, pass them to the manager who then short lists whom they think will be good and provide that list with interviews.

    The timescale can depend on how many applications they think they will get. A small position will usually have about a week or 2 for turnover for interviews, bigger roles may have a slightly longer timescale.

    It is very bad for a business not to notify people of failed applications, but it is a much more common thing these days, however if you contact to find out they should always inform you if you have not been selected for interview, but again that just goes back to how good the employer is, bad ones tend to leave you hanging :/
