My company pays expenses to interviewees ... not generally flights since we're in England and it's a small country, but they paid for my petrol costs and a night in a B&B when I came down to interview.
You get 'em - looks like that was the plan all along. 6 months is a "normal" time to work somewhere, any less and it looks suspicious that you were fired rather than left. He got his relocation paid, and probably already has the job lined up and ready to start. It happens, you get burned from time to time. At least you got rid of a liability without any litigation, that's about the best view you can put on it.

Agreed, also I have been in the company of large organizations for most of my career. Standard practice is to require a year or more of employment to pay for moving expenses etc. Signing bonus is available the first day of work (or first paycheck whatever) and working bonus after a year or so. If the new employee bails before the moving expense commitment, it is deducted from the final paycheck.
You sure do. We hired a project manager and the company flew him and his family from London to Joburg. He was given a settling-in allowance, put up in a hotel until the company found a house for him to rent of which they'd pay the first three months. The c*** disappeared a week or so after landing. We later heard that he boasted that he saw some of the rugby tests during the Lions tour in 1980. The familiy f***ed off from the hotel leaving meals and booze unpaid for. That was the last they took anyone from the UK paying in advance.
The good thing is that you managed to dump the shite.

I admit, I cheated a bit and had a quick look online for this, I don't know all combinations of regular expressions off the top of my head! I also don't usually do calls to the Trim method like that, but for the purpose of this, makes it easier. I personally find it easier when they're two lines of code (two different jobs really, one does the split, one does the trim for leading/trailing spaces).
Should do the job (obviously needs to be put in a function, probably static/shared. Will also do phrases such as:
But hey, I just got into work this morning (8:30am here in NZ), not looking for an interview, just liked the quick challenge! Best of luck finding a new developer though!
These “Elephant”, “Sunshine” and “Paris” words used all over the place make me feel sad and stressed and dirty
That's why I come here!
