Problems working with current programmer.
Edward C. 22 posts - United States
I have almost always had problems with programmers that I hire and almost never can hire those I most want to work with.
I am a photographer in Los Angeles and tried to hire a programmers/contractors (invitation only) that were charging between $33 and $50.00 per hour. Almost all of them did not respond to my invitation.
I finally hired the only one that responded and spoke english and it was a disaster. He worked on my LIVE SITE without backing up the original site after I gave him access to separate server where he was to place the test site. He never even mentioned that he was starting work or implementing the the changes. The new site he made was fraught with errors so I had him replace it with my backup; all of which I am being charged for.
Then he was difficult to get hold of and saw no problem with what he did.
Now I am faced with losing more time looking for someone new and launching a complaint against him or continuing to work with him. As you an imagine I was pretty angry with his work ethics dismissive attitude.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated folks.
Thanks for your time and attention.
