Companies involved in a long, drawn-out interview process forget that the best candidates only briefly surface on the job market and don’t stay there forever. Surveys indicate that most candidates lose interest in the job if they are kept waiting in line for longer than two weeks.
Recruitment should not be delayed, and if it is due to a valid reason, it has to be communicated to the candidate waiting for a reply.
The complicated hiring process is made to hire the best candidate, but that very process often backfires and becomes a hindrance to quality hiring, with the best candidates going to other organizations who value their expertise and time.
If companies are unable to make hiring decisions after a decent number(three or four) of interview rounds, it may also signal to the candidate how the company makes decisions internally.
