Often times you can get black listed

How often? By which firms? I've heard this before but I wonder who actually maintains the blacklist database.

You probably can’t work for that company again, it’s bad look but do as you need to further your career

I backed out of an accepted offer before. Talked to a friend in hr and she mentioned there is no “black list” persay. They will keep track knowing that if you applied again you may back out, so it’s more about how serious they think you are, but I would worry about it it happens all the time

Even if black listed no worries tons of other places out there to get a job!

What are they gonna do? Fire you?

funny

Hire then immediately fire haha

Expect you won't be going back to the company you reject any time soon! Let them down as nicely as you can but I do believe it's not as bad as quitting in the first month of joining.

I know it’s a bad look but my second choice gave me an offer today and gave until 3pm today to decide meanwhile my top choice hasn’t come back yet :(

Sounds like used car salesmen tactic
