Don't assume that the wait is bad news. There are plenty of reasons for a delay between interviews and a response. Sometimes employers need more time to fill a position than they thought. This is especially true if the delay is only a few days or a couple of weeks. Some other possible scenarios for the delay include an important member of the hiring committee is out of the office, other interviews are taking longer than expected, and additional hiring preparations are underway.
Don't stop looking for a job while waiting for news. A promise to call you back is not a job offer. Until you have that offer with an agreeable salary and a start date, continue your job search efforts. Sometimes jobseekers misinterpret the intents of hiring managers, such as in these examples.
