Welp. They just let me go.!!

Charlesmartin asked in General

I started with a company 7 weeks ago and they just let me go. They had no training material whatsoever. They interviewed me as an engineer. The moment I started, they started treating me like a manager, so I was like "What gives?" and they tol https://routerlogin.uno/ d me I was going to be the Web Team Lead. Whatever. So I started learning their company and history and team dynamics and how they operate and how I'm going to lead the team. Then two weeks ago, a demo didn't go so well and I was given a silent ultimatum, but I didn't realize it until I was just fired effective immediately.

Am I going out of my mind, or did I dodge a bullet? This is a company who's on Ruby 1.9.3 / Rails 3.2.12 (I think) and expected me to hit the ground sprinting. In the entire time I was there, I never even could get the test suite to run. I was only ever barely able to get the server to run due the the ancient versions. https://openweb.vip/whatsapp-web/

I'm just looking for a gut-check. Not a pity party. https://19216801.onl/

Oof, that sounds awful. Any company should expect that you have a month or two of onboarding as you get used to the product, how it works, and how the team makes decisions and implements things.

If a company is still on Ruby 1.9.3 and Rails 3.2 these days, then they've probably got some serious technical debt and don't know how to dig themselves out of it. That's a bad sign.

Sounds like you dodged a bullet!
