I avoid HackerRank-like screener/interviews like the plague. It's a lottery of problems. You can get lucky and figure it out quick or you can get stuck. In my opinion it's not a measure of your ability at all. And they make you feel pretty low after you fail them. It's really a loss all round for me.
I agree. Company misses out on good candidates that might have been accidentally screened out. Programmers miss out on potentially great jobs (and lose confidence).
I feel like they’re looking for efficiency, but being a human being is inefficient. That’s what makes life wonderful and nuanced.
