My CEO hired his friend

May 6, 2020 | Don't do this, nepotism

We had a dev who got a job at the studio straight up because of nepotism. He had worked previously with the CEO at another place and applied for a role for which he was totally unqualified. His interview was just for show. He was offered the role BEFORE the hiring committee had even discussed all the candidates (including others who were way more experienced). He started working and basically did nothing the whole time. He later was fired, but not before putting our project and reputation at risk.
