Possible scenarios:
1. HR asks you things like do you rent vs own? Relocation situations. Other details needed to finalize the offer.
2. HR wants you to talk to another person you didnt have a chance to talk to.

Either case, they will ask you if you are still interested, your other offers and interviews, etc.

Friend said it was to ask about how the interview went and to say they are interviewing other candidates, but to let them know if he had other offers.

I forgot to add, the HR said the hiring team liked what they heard in the "debreifing".

A week went by without hearing anything, so friend asked for an update and was told "I believe a decision will be made early next week, but things are looking good." It has been well over a week since the decision was supposed to be made.

Why do companies do this? Are companies now ghosting candidates that they have had multiple interactions with?

I don't think it's gotten that bad (ghosting), but I do think that companies continue to be wildly optimistic about how efficient their whole process is. As in, we need one more approval and then two signatures, should be done in a couple more hours.... or a month.

Especially during summer vacation season.
