I: Can you work with databases?

    I guess the Interviewer was ... unprepared. Or had no idea what he is talking about. Both is not completely unlikely.

    Or the company is just really outdated. Also not unlikely.

    Or all three apply. That would be really bad.

    @sbiewald I guess that the company was not really outdated, but they have a bunch of fucking stupid hr people. They know how to get the client's attention and that is about it. They use buzzwords and create new ones on the fly, but don't know jackshit about what they are talking about. The project managers in that company are probably cocksuckers of their chiefs and of the hr people who are not protecting their developers's interests etc.
    Unprepared and no idea of what he was and will be talking about in the future would be my bet.
