A friend of mine informed me the other day, that her friend used to work for Bitopi, which happens to be some sort of tree. But that’s not what her friend worked for, don’t be silly… it’s a marketing agency named after a tree in a desperate attempt to being recognized as a creative agency.
I was letting her know how I made a mansion by stacking up bread crumbs, she’s a smart woman and immediately understood me and referred me to this unholy vacancy. However, my first concern was why her friend left the job?
Without pondering further, I applied for the job. Two weeks or so later, I was called for an interview. I went to attend it, only to find out it was a test and had nothing to do with an interview or whatsoever. They didn’t ask me anything at all, not even a good
Although the office was filled with Mac’s, they settled me with an old broken Windows PC with a broken ass monitor that displayed weird colors (it showed their insecurity and how little faith they had in their candidates). I immediately knew this was a nightmare and tried to wake myself up. Sadly though, it was real and not a dream. The third thing that caught my attention was how the seniors were acting all bossy and scolding a guy in front of everyone. An excellent display of ego playing the role of an asshole.
I was given a task with incomplete information (again, it showed their incompetence and lack of professionalism), they wanted a print-related design and a gif animation based on the same design. I didn’t bother asking any details either and just started working on a sample. Once I was done, one of the seniors came by, he didn’t think it was important to introduce himself and started giving me orders. This was another indication of how uneducated and unprofessional they were in their conduct. The guy asked me to output an mp4 file instead of the gif. I did what I was asked to do and quickly left the office after showing them my saved files.
I now know, why my friend’s friend had left this job.
