It’a possible. Have you tried googling your name and that company to see if there’s any paper trail ? It’s a small world - you may have worked with people who are friends with your interviewers. It’s also a crappy economy and just a tough time to be interviewing. I tend to think this is the latter theory but it is possible that it got out.

If the company includes checking employment history in their background check, it will come back to bite you if you lie about the dates.

Depends on how thorough their background checks are.

Just got a rejection after final round of interviews with a tech company. The recruiter called and gave positive feedback but indicated that no one was ultimately hired.

The process was very intensive with about 6+ interviews with several written/verbal assessments. Not sure I want to start the process over
