When I was moving to London months ago and it looked like our company
might have issues, I interviewed with them, too. Seemed like a good
company. I liked the guy I interviewed with, the interview process was
good and the interview went very well. I was pretty sure a job offer
was in the bag, then the *real* issue came up:
Interviewer: why are you asking for £XXXXX salary?
Ovid: Because that's what the recruiter said you were paying.
They weren't willing to pay what the recruiter said they would pay and
I confess that I was a little disappointed in the recruiter.
It's a shame about the misunderstanding. I thought things had gone
really well other than that.
In other news, aside from using CVS, their test suite apparently uses
PerlUnit, a project that I thought was long-abandoned, but apparently
is being developed again. Unless things have changed significantly,
doesn't that mean that pretty much all of the Test:: namespace on the
CPAN is useless, or have things changed?
