    Interview

    Applied online. Invited to interview 1-2 weeks after. Went through 3 interviews 2 over the phone 1 in person. Told a decision will be made 2 weeks after but heard nothing since then. No reply for emails or phone calls. I expected a no is the answer. The interview process is okay but to be honest I felt unpleasant when I was ignored by the HR after the interview. I could have accepted other offers a lot earlier if not wait for this one. I'm wondering if anyone else had similar experience.
