    Interview

    Fantastic casual interview. All smiles at the end and "we're excited and will get back to you soon". 4 months later........still silence. Completely ghosted and HR/Recruiter will not even acknowledge my inquiry for a followup or status. On the application status it shows still active. Would have been great even if HR would have followed up and just said no.
