I had an interview for a job I really wanted and thought that I had performed well. It was my first interview in several years. The interviewer promised I would hear at the end of the next week but I didn't. I called a few days after i didnt hear back and was told the end of that week. I then heard nothing and called a week later. I was then told the interviewer would send an email letting all candidates know the outcome but that has not come either.
I gave up on the job after the first phone call but was surprised at the behaviour of the company, who are not a fly by night operation (I thought). I really wanted the job and thought I should show some initiative by calling to ask again and even to ask for feedback if I was not successful but I admit this has done a bit of a number on my head.
Is this standard practice now if you are unsuccessful? I'm not under any illusion about getting the job anymore but really am struck by the lack of well.......balls/manners.
Standard practice? Thanks for any insight.
