@texas786, Mind you the arrival date is very very fluid. I got my offer end of Nov or so and the offer letter said "arrival Dec. 31st". It's almost April and I have my visas and was told to quit my Job 2-3 weeks ago and I still have no clue when I'll actually arrive there...just saying.
I was part of Houston Talent Quest (Feb 3-4). Its been almost 2 months and I dont have any hopes of getting any offer (They again requested my app and two recent pay stubs eventhough I gave them the same when I went for the interview). Tried contacting recruiter, but no luck getting that person via e-mail or phone. Just curious if anyone out there in the same boat as me?? 8)
For us things happened pretty fast, we assumed it would all take a long time, but they hustled! We got our Visa's all done! They wanted us there April 10th but we pushed it back a week to be able to get our pet paperwork done. So it can go both ways. It did take forever to get our offer. First interview was in September and offer wasn't until Feburary.

Exploring and researching the life style and opportunities for my family in SA to get ready for the offer. I have a pretty good job here in Canada (very good salary, benefits and opportunities for professional development) so it is for me life time decision to make in next few weeks.
I am in a similar situation with the exception that I was told that I was put on hold status. Last week, I was told the team was interested for round two. Therefore, I filled out another application form.
Hrehman, could please share any insight that you may have. Thanks.
truecanadian wrote Finally, I received email offer today. Still waiting for Fedex. I have 7 days to accept.
Congratulations TrueCanadian! I hope the rest of the process would be smooth for you as well. I have also received my offer package today via FedEx. I am trying to find some Canadians from Calgary who are in the same boat as you and I are. I am assuming that you are somewhere from Canada as your nickname suggested. Please feel free to share your challenges or PM.
