What does it mean when people here say, the company will blacklist you (for whatever reason, like for example, reneging on an accepted offer)? Is there a real list or database that the company maintains? Or is it just the memory of the recruiter and the hiring manager?
This has been a very vague term and thought there should be a thread to focus on this. Appreciate if anyone who has had experiences with this at different companies share it.
It has former employees who embezzled, harassment accusations, people who were really low performers, etc.
The recruiter or manager really has to have it out for you if they go through the trouble of adding people to the list.
Note, most companies have HR systems that will show every touchpoint you’ve had with them, so most will be able to see that they gave you an offer, you accepted and then declined, but this is not a blacklist.
