re: Hey there. My two cents: For junior devs I'd only test their motivation and if they align with company culture. Talk about programming, ask quest...

I once interviewed a coder for an entry-level data entry position (he needed a job and had limited legal options) who, when I explained the bad data he'd been cleaning up, asked me what approaches I'd looked into for preventing the bad data.

I didn't end up hiring him, but did get a chance to brag on him to my boss when we ran into him over lunch, and my boss got him a way better job that's led to him being one of the most valuable new employees at my workplace.

Questions to other coders most definitely do show quality of thinking!
