I had an interview with a certain company that finds you “apprenticeships” for $15.00 an hour as a web developer. I showed him some of my projects, and I solved his coding challenge in under 10 minutes. Then he went on to say that(because I didn’t solve the algorithm the way he wanted) he felt I needed to improve and have another interview once I have learned react and created an app with authentication/user profiles. I don’t know much about Reach yet, but isn’t that a front end framework? What does authentication/user profiles have anything to do with that? I made it clear I wanted to do front end work, not back end because I primarily enjoy HTML/CSS and design more than anything.
So is it reasonable they asking for react knowledge for a $15 an hour apprenticeship with no benefits? Isn’t an apprenticeship taking someone very new at something and growing them into a profession? I am pretty sure also that just 5 years ago nobody knew react and developers made websites just fine.
