I had something like this happen back around september. I applied to an IT position at a local resort, interviewed a couple people and the GM of the hotel. They said they had a couple more interviews, but that the other people I interviewed with liked me well enough. Hell, I even said I would help them with finance stuff just to make myself look more flexible. The GM said "We have a couple of other interviews, but we will definitely let you know what is going on by Friday." I get home and not an hour and a half later I get this automated message from them saying "We are looking at other applicants, good luck in your future endeavors". It was the kind of message you get when you don't even make it beyond the first the application level, not big "in-person" interviews. I thought it might have been an accident as I was expecting an actual call from a human being simply due to the fact that I "made it through a few levels" as they told me. Well I made a few calls to the HR guy who was my point of contact never got back to me and I called a few times. Listen, I know I didn't get the job, but sending an automated message is just weak, I can handle them telling me I didn't get it.
