Interview

I was told by HR to move forward to the "next stage" of an interview. Didn't go through any preceding rounds though, but might have been due to another previous interview by HR for another role (a few months earlier). Talked mainly about my CV and what I did for those roles. Was then told I made it for the "next round". This is when things got ridiculous. I was initially told the afternoon before that the timing of the 2nd session needs to be changed due to some last minute meeting that the interviewer needs to attend. No problem, then there was a slight adjustment again to shift forward slightly earlier, still no problem as I managed to deconflict my schedule. Then shortly after, was told that it has to be postponed again 2 days later as there are more meetings that came in. Still, no problem, I will fit into the schedule as I know there are exigencies. On that day morning, I got another message that the call has to be postponed again due to the COVID situation in the interviewer's country. The new timing will be following Mon, likewise, no problem, exigency happens. When Mon came, was told that interviewer got sick, and got to postpone again. Only this time round, there was no proposal for new dates and that the Hiring Manager would need to be consulted. Perhaps understandably so due to the multiple changes to the call that happened. And thats when nothing was heard out after that, dropped a text message to the recruiter, dropped an email, but nothing came back. Effectively ghosted. For a supposed well established MNC, the hiring process is really screwed up.

Interview

Had a 30 mins call with HR and was completely ghosted afterwards which says a lot about the company. No respect for people. I have chased twice 3 weeks after the interview and was completely ignored. Basic human manners would be nice to say, thank you for your time but unfortunately we decided not to proceed. If your recruiters don't know how to draft a generic courtesy email please use my sentence above.

Many rounds but questions were mainly the same revolving around your previous experiences. Could be better if we could know in advanced who the interviewers were and if better communication was done amongst the interviewers.
