Giving modification passwords to a production schema to someone, and when the person is let go and rehired in another department, the password is only then changed.

So they had the insight to change the password when they saw the person re-hired but never thought to have it be part of the exit process?

Yeah. That process changed afterwards, no one gets access to production schemas like that anymore.
