Nanos109323yThat's another question I must remember to ask before going to an interview, "Is this for a real job I can start tomorrow?"..
kdiggity843yWow. That company is going to be rightfully SOL when they actually do need a dev pulling that waste-a-devs-time bull-💩. I had this happen twice when I was job hunting via recruiters and after the 2nd time, I dropped the recruiters like a bad habit. Next time ask many "hiring" questions like "When would you need me to start?", etc. on the phone and hopefully you can root out the BS before wasting your time driving in. Good luck.
> Next time ask many "hiring" questions
Sadly I found virtually everyone refused to answer such questions, they all said something like "We'll answer any questions at the interview.."
But then, most of the interviews I went to, ended up being a total waste of my time !
So perhaps its best if you only go with ones who can be bothered to answer a few questions on the phone !
I remember one such company we kept too'ing and fro'ing emails back and forth as I tried to tease out of them answers to really basic questions.
In the end after about 3 months of that, I didn't bother applying for the job in the end.
My main question was simple enough, in the job advert they said 'degree required', so I asked them if they was flexible on that and would they consider someone without a degree and with experience.
You'd think a fairly simple question to answer, either yes or no !
Thank you all guys, you are the best to cheer me up ❤️
