        These sorts of things are for employees, I've never been asked to do one apart from once.

            True - but it weren't a tech test, it were a psychometric test not that it changes what I said into common sense!

              A 100% failure rate in tests for gigs. You should be proud.

                  I usually swerve these however curiosity got the better of me and did two for Rethink Rec a few years back. passed the both with avg of 82% (pass was 75%) but heard nothing afterwards.

                  Wouldn't bother with them again.

                  I look forward to your all knowing and likely sarcastic and unhelpful reply.

                    Depends how much time you have and your other options.

                    It's a good sign that they're testing you before any offer, means that it should be a decent place to work - but, yeah it's a hassle to do it.

                      The problem is i'm still on gig and every test takes 4h+ . the last project i completed took me good 12h and completely nailed but didn't win the gig. So pretty annoying especially I want to have some free time for myself too
                      When you are on the market , do you do these tests or just interview with clients directly ?
                      I do the tests. I agree they are a pain but I did one test that took around 5 hours and got the gig as a result. I assume I was the only aplicant that could be 4rsed to make the effort.

                      Just did an IKM C language test and scored 99/100 putting me in the 98th percentile </boasting> Haven't heard back regarding an interview slot yet though...
