A recent interview was quite weird.
I emailed my resume to this company, the recruiter keeps sending me emails for 3 days asking follow-up questions and bunch of irrelevant crap. After that the emails completely stopped, she answers me back after a month saying I didn't get the job. Still wondering about that huge amount of personal questions2
Boss insists in using firemonkey to save time since the same app will work for PC, Android and iOS. They didn't even consider going native. so I coded a simple calc on firemonkey, half the calc functions that worked perfectly on the pc didn't work on Android, and the app took 25mb space while other apps way bigger I make with Android studio barely have 2mb lol2
At the interview: we currently work with Delphi, but we are making changes to go web, so your web background will be a big difference. 3 months in to the job, no web development at all, just workarounds on legacy Delphi code and they managed to "forget" about the agreed payment amount after the third month....2
When your small minded boss wants to make the company apps on Delphi firemonkey because it would save time. But won't pay for its 2k USD license and the crack makes the heavy ide crash all the time :(4
Two currently, one that spends all day cussing and smashing his keyboard, and someone else who keeps sending me random work related shit on Facebook and Whatsapp the entire weekend!1
Boss: What you guys think about this feature?
Employee: ~details 5 good reasons not to implement it~
Boss: Nah, I don't think so, do it anyway.3
