re: What is your biggest 'red flag' when interviewing? VIEW POST


Much like the 'Must be willing to work under pressure' red flag, I always find it weird seeing job ads for data analysts that say 'must thrive on chaos' or 'loves juggling multiple tasks'.

I cannot think of a single data analyst ever who loves a chaotic environment with lots of change and requests coming from multiple places.


It seems the 'loves juggling multiple tasks' or similar is being applied pretty liberally around IT these days.


Another one that had seen when I was looking for a job last year was: 'Working in the nanoseconds zone'. I believe it fits into the "we are disorganized and dysfunctional multitaskers but for reason proud for that" category too.
