I was asked if I’d ever worked with workflow rules and process builder.

1 Answers

Most any admin has created workflow, validation, and escalation rules. He had mentioned they weren’t really using Lightning Edition, so I was curious how he knew about it. I explained how you could bunch workflows into process builder so you can control the order in which rules are applied. He himself had no experience with that, and was not certified himself (he confessed to just pushing buttons hoping it worked !!!), so I could have made up anything at that point. I made suggestions on how to simplify integrations, and he replied “We don’t want to do that.” I generally don’t like working with people that overly complicate business systems. It creates bloat, and makes room for error and dirty data. I was not feeling great about the job, and thankfully, the VP I was supposed to meet with begged off because he was up all night trying to fix a malicious wipe of one of their servers. (Not amazing to hear about a financial company) Apparently, blowing off interviews is a common practice of theirs. Anyway, they’re shopping the job around to a bunch of recruiting firms at varying salaries, so good luck on salary roulette. Incidentally, what they want is a developer hybrid, but only want to pay you admin dollars. Run away! Less
