Nintex Form for office365 hangs with loading symbol

In office365\SharePointOnline environment on a custom list (say the list name is A)Nintex form, I referenced external JS file and wrote some script using Jquery\Rest ApI to fetch data from different listB, so that I can hide a Repeating section on listA, based on value from ListB. The below script executes perfectly on List A i.e. gets the data and hides the control in question. But, the form, ListA Nintex form is stuck on loading symbol for long time and never finishes (Screen Shot attached) .


Custom Script in Fetch.js(Executes on Form load of ListA)

var spHostUrl;
var appWebUrl;
$(document).ready(function() {
spHostUrl = decodeURIComponent(getQueryStringParameter('SPHostUrl'));
    appWebUrl = decodeURIComponent(getQueryStringParameter('SPAppWebUrl'));
    var scriptBase = spHostUrl + '/_layouts/15/';   

     $.getScript(scriptBase + "SP.js", function() {
      $.getScript(scriptBase + "SP.RequestExecutor.js", getEmployeeDept);

function getEmployeeDept() {


var executor = new SP.RequestExecutor(appWebUrl);
    var url = appWebUrl + "/_api/SP.AppContextSite(@target)/web/lists/getbytitle('ListB')/items?@target='" + spHostUrl + "'&$select=Exempt";   
    url: url,
    method: "GET",
    headers: { "Accept": "application/json; odata=verbose" },
    success: function (data) {
      var jsonObject = JSON.parse(data.body);
      var isExempt = jsonObject.d.results[0];           
    error: function (data, errorCode, errorMessage) {
       console.log("Unable to fetch records." +errorMessage);


I referenced files in Form-Setting -- Advanced -- Custom javascript
includes as below:-



So, how to get away with this issue of form hanging? Is there a way to force further execution once my above script executes?
