#108418 - A lesson I learned in 1983
Responding to: Kevin Timm's previous message
Howdy Kevin,

That is a lesson I learned in 1983. I had just been promoted to run the installations and service department at an alarm company. It was the first time I had ever hired anyone, so when I asked the candidates if they new basic electronics (the difference between parallel and series, Ohm's Law, things like that), and I believed them when they said yes. The guy I hired had lied. After that everyone got tested, at least with specific example questions in the interview and eventually in sit-down written form.
