They hired a full stack developer but he's not familiar with the programming language used in our back-end and front-end. Gosh dang. The retardation in this project is higher than the death count of all plagues combined.

    what's your companies application form look like?

    I told a company I had an associate's degree in web design from a 4 year accredited university today all because the options in the prediction menu sucked and it wouldn't accept anything I typed otherwise.

    @M1sf3t The client hired the guy so I'm not sure what their application form or process is like.

    @rutee07 and it may not be that bad, I was just curious.

    Between some of these application forms and the bullshit a-z requirements posted in most of the leads I'm beginning to understand why people just apply to anything. It's all prefiltered anyway, if my app does actually make it to a person and they don't bother to look at the resume I took the trouble to type up then that's their fault.

    @M1sf3t People in the first "filter" (mostly recruiters) definitely don't bother to read the resumes. I'm just wondering if there were interviews, technical or not, conducted at all.

    When he was first introduced, the first thing one of the developers asked is if he knows the languages we use. It took just that one question. I kinda feel bad for the guy because surely, he will be put under pressure for being full stack and none of these fucking managers would care to consider that he needs time to learn the languages we use.

    Applying for anything does work because sometimes, even if you are not the right fit for the job post, they can find better fitting jobs for you.

    @rutee07 yea that's gotta be nerve wracking. At least he informed y'all that he didn't know them. Funny how it didn't come up in the interview though 😅

    Thing I'm worried about is I have a habit of generalizing things for people who I think might not understand so I could very well bullshit my way into that same position if the person interviewing me doesn't know the right questions to ask.

    So there are actual full-stack developers?
    Always thought that is a bullshit term for an underpaid admin who also has some coding experience.

    @Oktokolo You're a lot smarter than me. I thought they were people who stack developer corpses on top of one another until the grave hole is full. Then they push a printer over the grave to cover it up.

    @rutee07
    Uhh, better make sure that we never hire one of these then...

    Amazon hires people with engineering backgrounds assuming they can pick the languages up. This doesn't seem like quite the same thing though 😆

    @Oktokolo I think full stack is the title you fall under when your company is too cheap to hire a frontend dev because they've already got a highly paid graphic designer on staff.

    Maybe they misspelled and wanted to hire fullsucks developer ?
