I interviewed with Citi in early June, 2 rounds of interviews and was told by the hiring manager that interviews would be wrapping up in the next week and I would definitely hear back, along with questions regarding my notice period and if I had any vacation planned (I did not), since they wanted someone to start quickly.
After the interview, I sent a thank you email and then about 10 days later a follow up email to the hiring manager asking for any update. Neither of those emails was replied to, so naturally, I think they went with another candidate and I'm out of the running. Not hearing anything back, I accepted a position at another firm.
Today I received an auto generated email from Citi HR saying my application was being considered for further review and they'd be in touch. How is the interview/ hiring process this disjointed?
