Has anyone else worked two programming roles at one time?

It is possible, but it all depends on the work load, time commitment you have, each roles deadlines and your mental wellbeing.

If the two jobs require you to programme in the same stack, then it is a bit easier, but the context switching is hard. This what I have found out.

You need to be disciplined in time boxing your contribution.

Is this a Management red flag?

My friend is making $19/hour and has been asking for a raise for months. Mid management have “little control” over raises and decisions stem from upper managers, although his reviews are always excellent. Their lumber company was recently acquired by a large PE firm based in Boston.

He recently got another job offer and when he put in his 2 weeks his current employer offered them a supervisor position of a $58K salary the same day.

Any advice or pro-tips?

Hi Everyone!

I know the interview process is notoriously slow. But I was wondering what the usual turn around time was for a recruiter to get back to you after onsite with the initial feedback (Tech vs. Non-tech). This could be how you're trending/unofficial results prior to HC or TM. I'm wondering if it's really radio silence for 1-2 weeks until results? Thank you!
