Discussion on: Take Home Assignments and the Interview Process

I posted an article a few weeks back to discuss this very thing. In the comments, various people give their thoughts about interview processes, what they like and don't like.

Sure employers want to be thorough but not being considerate of the candidates time is not a good look. The whole interview process needs to be a careful balance and there likely isn't a one-size-fits-all approach.

I agree, I've been wrong in the interview process before but most of the time my instincts are right. It's hard to tell from a take home test how people work and if they will fit. I think it's also hard to judge someone by the code they write in an interview as they may have super bad test anxiety but they are a productive person outside of an interview.
