Same here... 5 companies (services, so called big4, product), HR ghosted me after clearing 4-5 rounds each with no courtesy to reply back or reject my application is system. Came to know about reason only after checking with hiring managers. Moreover some of service companies used resume to show their pipeline to clients.

That's worst behaviour. Do call-out the name so that people can know about this more.

Do you discuss about the salary before going in the interview? In that case they should not behave this way. It's always better to tell your expectations before the interview so that they can decide. I have faced this many times. After clearing they told we need early joining we don't have budget bla bla😂😂😂😂 in all the cases I have told my LWD and expectations. But still 😂😂😂😂 HRs only blame candidates and think they are the god and giving you the job😂😂😂😂 but fact is we are getting job because we deserve it we are not getting it for any hr

When did you tell them about your salary requirements?
