Application for Permit B still in progress after 9 months

I moved to Geneva last year and I have been working since March. The first month I was living in France, so my employer applied for a permit G which was issued after 2 months. In May I moved to Geneva and we placed a new application for a permit B. After 3 months (in August) they asked me to return the permit G, which I did. I have never heard from them since. I have visited the OCPM twice but they were unable to give me a reply. They only told me that the request is in progress. I have been sending messages to their email address but they have never replied to me. I am really desperate about this issue.
Does anyone have similar experience , or can give me some advice?

Thank you!!

Seems to be a common issue these days..

A person I know has been waiting for 6 months (EU national) for her L permit, because of that she has been unable to apply for almost any job here.

Thank you for your replies!
In the company where I am working nobody had this issue apart from me. People who have been employed after me have already gotten their permit.. and I was worried that there is some kind of issue or even the application has been lost. I guess the delay has to do with France which had issued the previous permit..I am really hoping to have some news soon!!

Re: Application for Permit B still in progress after 9 months

My husband got his permit straight away, but I had to file for family reunification and it took about 6.5 months before my permit was issued ( B permit ). I also inquired about it after about 2 or 3 months, and received a similar response.

Some times, it's just a slow process.
