Declined Offer – Interviewed in Seattle, WA Jan 2007 – Reviewed Oct 28, 2009
Interview Details –
A head hunter found this temporary part-time position for me. To be honest, I wasn't too thrilled by the position to begin with, but I wanted the interview experience. I have a degree in Computer Science and this job only consists of editing really basic HTML stuff. The pay is also pretty low, but I figured it's a foot in the door to more software-engineering-intensive positions in the future.
Couple of hours after the interview I got a call from my head hunter telling me the good news. However, the company wanted to change the contract so I'd have to work full-time at the same hourly rate. I decided that no amount of money can make me work as a full-time HTML monkey, so I tried to negotiate either more money and/or less hours. The company decided to interview another person and subsequently hired him/her. My head hunter kept telling me how bad the market was and how there were senior web devs taking $15/hour positions, which I think is total BS. You can make more working as a valet!
Pretty much as soon as I found out the company hired another person, I was contacted by Google and Apple for interviews. In the end, I'm glad I hesitated so I can focus on prepping for interviews for jobs that I would actually enjoy doing :)
