Weirdest job rejections I ever received:

1) “We say you are an anarchist, so you don’t obey orders, so we are not going to hire you”

2) Solid job offer revoked after I inquired about the startup’s financial health

3) Passed a code task. We’re in process of scheduling a tech interview when all of the sudden they “chose not to move forward” & refuse to say why. Happened today & was coming from a company which I thought was way, way better than that.

“If the hourly estimate comes back too high, I’d do fixed-price project instead” is such a “fuck you” in the face.

In other words: ”If I can underpay by doing hourly, I'll do that. If hourly is too expensive, I'll underpay by doing fixed“

Why not offer a fixed price project priced fairly, right from the beginning?
