Does that mean even if they reject you?
I had a couple interviews two weeks ago, all saying that they will get back to me shortly, but I don't hear anything.
Guess my question would be, will they even get back to you even if they reject you?

Some get back to you on time, either way. Some take a long time to get back, either way. Some will never get back to you.

If it's over a week or two past the deadline they gave you, it's not improper to contact them and request a status update.
