re-recruiting with banks you turn down

wondering what it's like recruiting full-time with banks that you either received offers from for SA or bowed out of the process with because you accepted another offer. do they automatically reject you or does it make it easier since you've already made it all the way through their process? i've heard a lot of conflicting things

You are free to recruit again with whatever bank you have previously applied to. I worked for banks that rejected me several times, when I finally got through the interviews nobody even mentioned previous applications or rejections. Every role/application is a clean slate.
(exceptions would be when you previously faced the five fair reasons for dismissal or are otherwise barred from working there i.e. regulatory etc)
