N00bPancakes8156156d'react.js or bootstrap'
I don't mind either of those ,but the way they phrase that 'or':
Any job has non technical folks or recruiters who mis-phrase stuff.... but that worries me how far that has gone.
Also they're asking VERY specific stuff that I wonder if it is the actual job itself, and that too would worry me if only because that's kind wonky / who else did they hire for super pinpoint reasons...
TeachMeCode2090156dTotally vague, no description of database design (schemas, etc)’no api parameters or other instructions as to how you can reach their backend. The fact they used etc in their list of requirements is another ding
The recruiter said they wanted me to take only an hour.
bioDan5664156d@katbreitin if you are going to get these types of task specifications its better to avoid the company. They have no idea what they want or how to work properly.
Make the case that you want to talk with whoever is going to be your manager or assign your tickets before proceeding with the task. If you get a negative response, decline the offer.
If they are the ones that created this task, decline the offer.
Remember, you hold as much power as them so you should interview them as well to see that its indeed a good fit and a win-win situation for both parties
dmonkey1766156dThe only red flag I see is that it seems more a UI design test rather than a front-end one.
Maybe they made you questions about api calls because it's the only thing they weren't going to ask in the test.
Seems almost legit imo, maybe I'm missing something
ajinxs472156dI think better show them wireframe first and know for sure what are they going after. I could be wrong but it seems this individual thinks react and bootstrap are the same.
natescode57155dSounds like free work. This is UI/UX design more than frontend. The fact they word React and Bootstrap as similar frameworks worry me.
