Interview - Santhosh  
Santhosh claims in his resume that he is a Web deveper.
Interview showed that he is probably a web or graphic designer. But not a developer.
He mentioned Javascript, but when I started to talk with him about specific task that could be implemented in Javascript - he quickly gave up.
All people on his team have "Senior System Analyst" title, but from my understanding, Santhosh is a junior at his role.
When describing the accomplishments, Santhosh used word "we". Sometimes "we" meant him, and sometimes "we" meant his team.
Skype audio connection was good (which is not typical for Skype calls to India). That is probably because Santhosh worked (on the bench) from his employer office.
2000 rupees per day ($30/day = ~$700/month).

Unfortunately nothing of what Santhosh can do a meaningful contribution to PostJobFree: we need mostly backend work (middle-tier, parser, SQL queries and database design) or solid UX. Santhosh did not show signs of either of that knowledge.
So I told Santhosh that his skills do not match what I am looking for and asked him if he has any questions for me.
He did not have any questions.
Few minutes later he messaged me:
Santhosh: Hi is any possibility to give one task related to Ui Ux Design and see if I didn't complete we can drop for further or else we will continue as well
Ui Ux/Front-end Development
Dennis: I do not have tasks suitable for your skills
This was a 27 minutes interview.
I should learn to recognize such mismatches much faster.
