how long to wait till company gets back
A company interviewed me on the phone, and took my references.The 3rd party recruiter said I was one of the "good" candidates they were looking at.
5 working days is my usual.
A letter in the mail is probably even more impressive.
Send a letter or email saying how much you'd like to work there, what you think you'd bring to the company etc, etc. It really does make a difference.
I agree with calling to ask if there was any more information they would like you to provide, or if there are any outstanding application issues you should be aware of. Then you can ask them if they have a timeline for candidate selection.
A friend of mine received a job offer from a company NINE MONTHS after they interviewed him!
>NINEMONTHS after they interviewed him!

I agree with Ricardo. maybe something-else-you-haven't-thought-of happened. Perhaps they couldn't take someone on at that time but nine months later they could? The point is the possibilities are large. It is less likely (in my humble opinion) that the gears of HR took nine months to turn, as suggested.
