that you didn't get a job after you had an interview with them. If you get an interview, they really owe you a response of some kind post-interview. Do you agree or disagree?

Yes, it is very unprofessional. If a company has time to talk to you on the phone for 30 minutes, and bring you in for hours to interview you, they have time to at least send you an e-mail afterwards. When this happens, it should tell you something about the company and how they treat people who work there.

Sad thing is, I once did not receive any sort of response after interviewing for a government (state level) job.

That is very common. No need to get up in arms about it, it will happen again & again.

This is common and a common topic here :-)

I don't expect notifications after a single phone interview or even a single in-person interview. I did once get NO notification after job search process involving a phone interview and two in-person interviews, though... and it really pissed me off.

And then there are other employers who will send you a nice form letter even after just doing an online app. Shrug. There's no guessing who will be professional and who won't be.

after a second face interview I do expect a form letter in the mail/email. It only takes 5 minutes to generate a form letter. I spent time and money coming to an interview, and I absolutely would like a standard form letter. It's plain courtesy. But it's no surprise that many are rude or lack basic etiquette.

Agreed, however not getting a response seems to be the norm (no matter how aggravating it is) , so accept it for what it is and move on.

Yes, I agree. Our HR will send letter as soon as someone is rejected from getting an interview. Those interviewed will get call the day after the selected candidate has accepted our offer. If they don't answer, a message is left to call HR.

Yes, I don't get upset if I've never spoke to them (only submitted) or not even too much after 1st interview, but after multiple it rude. I've been flown out for final interviews only to never hear a peep again. Really? How totally unprofessional and I think companies should realize that candidates talk to each online, etc. so they aren't doing their company any favor
