When is it ok to call back after you have submitted an application in person?

You usually ask the potential employer when you can expect to hear from them, and if they don't call by the time they told you go ahead and call them back. Some employers have a "don't call us, we'll call you" policy, as mine has that as they process a large volume of applications (we're a 3,000+ employee company). If nothing is said, I personally would wait about 1 - 2 weeks before inquiring about the status of my application.
