GeneralWhat is it with companies and interview results [modified] Pin

Been on the job market and had quite a few interviews. What's annoying is that most never respond. I can see not responding to a resume submission, but not responding to an interview just seems rude. In one case, I'd had FOUR interviews with the company in question. (I suspect they hadn't been given an actual budget to hire, just permission to interview, but why not just tell me that? This turns out to be the case at several companies--they try to get the budget from management only once they have a specific candidate.)

Note to hiring managers. If you take the time to interview someone, take the time to follow up.

PS. In a true irony, I just received an email thanking me for my interest, but that the company has not selected me as a final candidate. What made me laugh is that I'd already told them A YEAR AGO that I wasn't interested in relocating to Chicago and never had an interview, just a pleasant conversation with their in-house recruiter. Yet, this is a great example on how to do things right, even if horribly delayed. (See Roger's post below.)
