Me: "I have sent my resignation letter, What happens to my Saturday duty, which will be converted to Vacation Leave?"
HR:"Vacation Leave is for employees who have rendered for 1 year only."
Me:"Then what happens to my Saturday work?"
FUCK YOU, FUCK THAT COMPANY. I HAD TO WORK FOR SATURDAY BECAUSE IT GAVE ME BENEFITS, BUT INSTEAD I HAVE TO WORK WITH NO PAY!3
"Ok guys, since we don't have money left and I have no funds to pay the bills, Let's just do a "work from home" policy"
What the fuck5
"Even if youre sick, you should have update your Tickets".
I did inform them that I'll be absent. I literally mean that I don't have to work for that. I don't even get to pay while updating my tickets.2
"Since your house is just a mile to our office you need to come to the office."
DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND THE SITUATION WE ARE IN???4
Marketing people are like
"Hey, I have a vision. I need someone to develop this Grab-like app in a few days".
Fuck that CEO, fuck your vision,. fuck your story. Nobody wants to work alone in a large scale application. You need to have a full IT department to do that job with the ability to work through time.
"We're gonna use React Native for our project."
Me:"If that's your decision, then I would decline your offer."
After few weeks...
"Are you vacant for this kind of job? We'll be switching to Flutter".
I don't know what happened. I worked for him as a freelancer using VueJS for their project. and he insisted to use React Native to make that web into mobile. I declined his offer. Now he wants to work with me again using Flutter.11
FUCK THEM FOR CHANGING MY PAYROLL.
MY GROSS RATE DROPPED 50$. AND THAT'S NOT WHAT WE AGREED ON. FUCK THAT COMPANY. I'LL JUST GO AWOL AND NEVER MENTION ANY OF THEIR COMPANY AGAIN.14
Wow. THE CEO JUST DID AN EMPATHIC SPEECH BECAUSE OUR PAYROLL GOT DELAYED.
He ran out of money. Begging for us to be pressured and bear his child that's even dead by now(his projects).
I guess someone said that it's already a sinking ship. I have to row my own boat and find a new course.13
Why would I waste my time watching tutorials for company rules if I can just watch it during work.7
The CEO just made a huge huge push-over to the developers.
He doesn't have any customers/clients and wants us to push our limits to make a Service Oriented Architecture where legacy code is needed to be revived, no documentation, and a single motherfucking mobile developer who has 3 projects already in his 1st month of stay.6
Supervisor: "You could just hold a meeting for 5 minutes and talk about what problems you encountered during development"
Or... you could just go home and not waste your 5 minutes talking about jerking people off.1
Entry level Junior Developer with experience of a Fullstack developer for a salary of an intern.
Can we add unicorns in that list?7
* Initial Interview*
HR: We do offer remote job, lots of benefits and annual increase of salary.
Supervisor: "Oh... Those things HR mentioned? That's just a lie. We're just complying on the government requirements"6
If you think laravel is easy, try to modify your json response in a way that's not too nested.
Not all language have built-in null-checking capabilities. We have a hard time in the front-end to do null checking if there are any nested(level 3 or more) JSON Response.2
I don't care if you're a Senior Developer. You just make me look dumb adjusting to your needs of not normalizing your database queries.
We agreed that a restaurant can have many items, but instead, I get "an item has many restaurants" relationship. Geez.2
Started a new job, then I found out that the salary of the person in charge of me has lower/same as I have.
How did I know? I looked at the API without authentication of all the list of employees.
Luckily, I didn't sign the contract yet7
Backend Dev: Sir, I think we have a problem with our code. The function does have a lot of bugs in production that we can't maintain it.
Manager: Okay Front-end. You get a new Ticket. Prevent this bug by today
Sometimes, I feel sorry for my colleague.1
"Why are you sometimes late?"
Because your promised office was always late. Had to commute 2 hours and work for almost 10 hours in weekdays just to sleep for 4 hours.
You said that the new Office will be in August. Now it's October and it's still half-baked.
Learn Empathy first5
PM: "Why are you absent on a regular holiday?"
FUCK, I JUST NEED THAT DAY TO GET PAID AND REST AND YOU WANT ME TO WORK FOR IT DURING HOLIDAYS?13
"Are you sure you want to commit a billion dollar valuation to finish an MVP?"
*Shows only mockups and has a deadline of less than a month*
No thanks. I don't think this company will ever survive
"We'll reach you out soon"
This is a sign you got rejected without hurting you.
"How do you see yourself few years from now?"
Is a sign that your employer would end your contract or you get to be terminated if you say that you will not be in their company.
"What's your expected salary?"
If you went overboard, they won't accept you. You either lower it or never give a fixed salary.
God why did no one tell me about these sooner. I'm facing mind-reading interviewer/recruiter/hr just to please them.3
There are alot of questions in the job industry I'm not aware of. job gaps, lying, job hopping, hr and little details I didn't even notice.
I have a job gap for 2 months.(Nov and December) and planning to land a job on January.
For 2 weeks, I got burned out and need to recover my motivation to move on because my employer told me the job industry of not being honest, but being a dick and slave is what it gets to keep the job.
This December, I'm just going to do my side projects and little coding challenge(not the fizzbuzz). I don't plan to create short term side projects. I have to keep on practicing.
I'll be a slave in January. But I don't want to work 48 hours a week.1
Can't seem to find any vuejs jobs here.
There are more react/angular jobs than vue here.
Can't find flutter jobs either. I'm thinking I'm light years away from the industry.2
: Tools are just tools. Technology evolves quickly.
: Still uses 1 language for all use-cases
I mean. Tools are just tools. But don't exclude language as tools. Without a framework/purpose. That language may eventually die and the descendants will also die.
I applied for an unknown job.
Email: you'll be taking Junior Developer
Interviewer: We need fullstack developer with a salary of $100 for two months of training and $450 if you have great accomplishments9
I always read the full job description whenever there's a job hiring.
I have a keen eye in some job description that this company is a red flag.
"Must have 4 years of experience in Blazor or other related web development"
"Be a multitasker"
"Must have experience in frontend web development using Figma or other prototyping tools"2
Estimating the task. A total of... 2 months.
Other guy: I think we should squeeze it to 1 month.
Others: I think we should squeeze it in 2 weeks to meet the deadline..
Deadline: 2 weeks
In Linux Mint 19 TINA. All I did was
"sudo apt-get remove python"
then, I saw cinnamon being removed in the terminal. Why is linux so dependent on python that much?19
I don't think it's still a valid years of experience of react native/flutter thing when they're job posting.
"Must have 4 years experience with react native/flutter"
I'll be seeing "I'm sorry, but you did not have 4 years of experience in flutter"3
