You might be right, I just assume the best as I've had almost no negative experiences during my career, whether as freelancer of working for companies. As an employee, I do value an on-boarding period to get familiar with the stack, but with my experience also feel like I should be able to deliver / contribute quite early on.
Have you had any experiences with companies or even interviews for companies that expected you to be up and running from day one?
