I had an on-site interview this Wednesday and still haven't heard anything back. Is this typically a bad sign?

Would love to return to Manchester United if possible, otherwise I will stay at Dortmund as long as I can.

The more info they give you the better. Think of it like a first date. If you want to see him/her again, you probably have no problem letting them know and will do so. If you don't want to see him/her again, you'll likely be less forthright and more ambiguous to avoid hurting their feelings.

Generally there will be other indicators if they are interested too, like they'll ask if you're interviewing elsewhere or have other offers.

That said, if you don't hear back by Monday afternoon, I'd follow up with an email or phone call.
Thanks for the response. If I need to follow up with them, what is usually a good way to approach? shall I call them, or email? and shall i just say i want to get a status update?

my sample size is 1. my current job i heard back the next day saying something like "we think the interview went really well and we expect to be able to make you an offer by next week" and then probably about a week and a half later they extended the offer formally.

Had an interview for entry level actuarial position recently, waiting to hear back from them. Interested to know, How long/what was the longest time you waited to get a response after the final interview?
There is no possible way that 2011 was the last time this question was asked.
