15k rep from rants here and u work only as 1lvl support? The fuck
@zemaitis it's an apprenticeship for a dev role.
I don't get to decide where I will be placed unfortunately.
The company wants me to gain knowledge in every IT area before I do the dev job.
@-ANGRY-STUDENT- what kind of bs company is that?
@100110111 it's a German data center. Cannot tell more about the company.
@-ANGRY-STUDENT- whatever it is, it’s complete and utter bullshit to require anyone to ”gain knowledge in every IT area” for a dev job. I get deployment, but support? Hell to the nope.
@100110111 that's not even the best part. I went through crazier stuff than support. I recommend reading my previous rants until last year's August when it all began haha
@-ANGRY-STUDENT- why do you endure that?
@100110111 because I am already past the actual hard and crazy times.
Now I do have a chill office life.
If I would stop it now, all my effort would have been for nothing.
@-ANGRY-STUDENT- let me rephrase: why did you decide to endure that even past week 8?
@100110111 because I had hopes.
Hoped that it would be a quick pain.
And I didn't want to go through interviews again for another 40 times while also working
A few weeks there aren't too bad so you can see what your "clever new feature that totally won't break things" (hint: it will) does to the front line. But 5-11 months is a red flag.
However I can see how it's worth it, depending on your other options, so don't mind my angry rambling and congrats?
@saucyatom thank you.
Just for the record: I started there in the beginning of January. It's February now. Therefore I wrote 5 to 11 instead of 6 to 12.
!rant, but story
Update: I now work as a 1st lvl support
After 5 to 11 months I'll work in deployment and after that in development.
