This also applies to when you're actually interviewing. I once went through three rounds and they wanted a fourth. No is such a powerful and unexpected word. That they're still talking to you means they're interested but that they haven't offered you the job means they're not 100% sure. This one scenario I said No they came back with an offer. But it was rejected.

Same for assessment centers. Huge red flag.

Did you counter or flatly reject and it ended there?

I read that as "rejected by the candidate." Hey said "no," they offered, he said "no" a second time.
