    Is there currently a hiring freeze?

    I was offered a job yesterday as an in store rep. Got a call this morning that there was a hiring freeze and the VP put the offer in a holding pattern. Is this really true or am I being given the run around? I'm in the VA market.

    I am also on the East coast, back in August, I went through 2 interviews and was told they were going to make an offer but a hiring freeze was just put on. I called towards the end of September and was told its still in effect.

    I was at my local sprint store a few weeks ago. I mentioned how busy they were and the manager said they were short staffed and there was a company-wide hiring freeze preventing him from hiring more help.

    So, I don't think you are being given the run around.

    A lot of companies post jobs even without openings just to get you on file for the future.
