How long should I wait for a call back?

I called about a job yesterday AM. She told me she was taking names and numbers and someone would call me back. So I hung up and waited. By last night, I had heard nothing, so I called her back to see if I should bring a Resume by. She said the owners still weren't there and she would give the information to them when they got in. Today, still nothing so far. I am extremely interested in this job, obviously. So, what do I do... Wait or call again? And how long do I wait? I want them to know I want it.

  • I usually call back after 2-3 days. And if they give me the run around like theyre giving you, I call back every other day for about a week. After that, I give up and look for something new.

  • It may be a while.. if they don't call back in 2-3 weeks, i would move on and keep looking.
