How would you expect to be rejected by a company if you went through 4 interview rounds (for a total of 2-2.5 hours) and met with 5 different people? Phone call? Generic copy and paste rejection email? Email with details and reasoning why? I’ve gotten several rejections after making it this far in an interview process but the latest one just rubbed me the wrong way. No reason for rejection, no personalized message, they didn’t even say they went with another candidate who is a better choice lol
