comment Hiring a Junior Developer, What should I ask?
@JohnFx: If you're hiring junior programmers that are costing you more time than their worth, then you're hiring the wrong employees. :)

comment Hiring a Junior Developer, What should I ask?
This answer is limited, and it will hurt people who follow only this advice. For the phone screen, follow Steve Yegge's advice on it. For an in-person, Have coding challenges, and follow Joel's Guerilla Guide to Interviews. Have a design question - "what are all the steps needed to make <insert common, nontrivial piece of software>?" You'll find that regardless of experience, all good hires have good, fast answers to these problems.
