interview question: 80% of the company now relies on a weekend hack you implemented in an internal service. what do you do?

@iliana hmm that's an interesting one cause it's so common

I guess I take it to my higher up to schedule maintenance/time to reimplement that correctly?

@iliana based on my 20+ years of experience as a professional, I take a moment to make sure I'm saving enough cash to cover my expenses for a few months, just in case

@iliana candidate answer: "why do you think I'm here?"

@uint8_t @iliana and transition to a lead role with power to fix the technical debt intrinsic to that scenario
