# I interview well
which is shit in some ways.

# How is being good in an interview bad?
I'd love to have charisma to go with my education and experience.

# Getting snapped at for interviewing for a job and getting it (and then turning it down)
when I decided during the interview that I didn't want the job. That was fun.

# I suppose
I just don't like being shouted at, I guess

# They shouted at you because you didn't want the job?
Bloody hell, lucky escape I think on that one if they are like that!

# 'wasting my fucking time'
I believe was one choice phrase. No wonder I didn't want to work for her.

Plus I only found out the salary at interview, and it was the same as I was on at the time.

# At the moment I would gladly move for the same salary.
But every time I go for an interview they make silly salary offers you would expect to turn down as an intern, why would they expect an experienced person work for it?

# Because eventually some poor person
who needs the money will say 'fuck it, ok then'.

# That's why I'm on such a shitty salary here
I was absolutely desperate for work, took the job on low salary because I hadn't graduated at that point with promises for big pay rises when I graduate etc.

I've been here a couple of years now (already having 3 years industry experience), still haven't even reached the top end of the starting salary and the other programmer earns over double what I do.

# welcome to my world.
The next person up from me is on over double what I am, and I do a lot of his stuff anyway.

# He's not over me though
We both do the same job

# People being annoyed because you're good and they can't have you isn't that bad either.
This reminds me, I need to tell Derby hospital I don't need their interview any more.

# High five for not needing it
onwards and upwards?

# Had a better offer.
Plus, their HR department wrongly said I was unqualified and then took about 2 months to get back to me.

# There's ghosts at Derby hospital you know!
They called an exorcist and everything.

# Bugger, now I'm reconsidering.
I think I'd have been at the fancy new PFI one though, which probably doesn't have ghosts yet
