Adore's thread got me thinking and I've always had a few questions regarding job offers. I didn't want to hijack her thread, so I started a new one. If you have a job offer from Company A, but are still waiting to hear from Company B, can you ask Company A for some time to consider before answering? If so, how do you word it and how much time is reasonable? Also, can you call Company B to let them know you have an offer and would like to know where you stand with them? The whole thing seems a bit tricky. Also, at what point can/should you negotiate salary? TIA.
