Company has me giving interviews and today brought the second "Sr JavaScript Developer" that's gotten past multiple people that can't even construct a fucking "for" loop.

Get the fuck out of here... And those excuses at the end trying to explain your "industry experience" just annoy me further.

If I have to smile, thank, and shake another one of these fucktards hands, I'm gonna scream!

    @ObsidianBlk Problems happen when they override the object.

    let me = prospects.find(p => p.name === 'Nathaniel');

    me.knowsTheLanguage = () => {
    return true;

    @nblackburn really? Because, if they could do that, wouldn't that mean they'd need to... Know the language? šŸ˜

    @ObsidianBlk That is basic shit wrapped in ES6 sugar, i wouldn't call that knowing the language.

    One was asked to dedupe numbers in an array... He just froze. Mentioned the word "loop", he just said "I don't know". The other was asked to write a loop and he just scribbled "for()" with a bunch of indecipherable scribbles inside the parens.

    I wish I was exaggerating... I've had some less than ideal candidates but this fucking takes the cake. Or how about the one guy, when asked to describe equality and logic operators, gives a 10min textbook style rant about the history of JavaScript and MVC. When asked again, he didn't have an answer. He also couldn't elaborate on a single thing he said previously.

    Fucking resume boosting agencies sending people through like cattle.

    This bothers me so much, these things they couldn't answer and the bare basics you learn Day 2 of programming ANYTHING. They both claimed over 5+ years experience coding, made excuses, and came in to interview for senior level roles. I wouldn't even consider these guys for unpaid internship because they're dishonest on their resume making them unsuited for hire when the work concludes.
