I just wanted to share my H1B visa experience. I got pink slip too. After routine interview questions and verifying the letters, VO took all Employers and Sibling Details and as usual said it will take up to 4-6 weeks and retained my passport. Interview Date: 03/20/2012 Interview Post: Chennai Model: EC Common Muslim Name: Yes Countries visited in past 5 years: Mexico Retained Passport: Yes 20 days, and still showing "Pending Processing". Thanks in Advance!
