    That's preposterously unlikely, you only have to look at the costs of preparing a test, calling people in and interviewing them to see that. How would it look to the rest of the company, CEO, HR etc, if the CTO couldn't solve problems without calling people in for fake interviews. Just a silly response IMO.

      Not entirely true, please see my post above.
      It was for a young company, but, market leader, of course I won't actually name them here.

        Is this a bad sign?
        I'd fall at the first hurdle.

        I don't even know what this means.

            Ok, fair enough. I've done similar & don't object if it's no longer than 1 hour.

            It's the coding tests I object to where they want you to put a full working solution together.

              If you have ever performed any hiring duties, you would already know this
              Tests.
              The best one is the market survival test. My company accounts and references tell the real story.

              I would fail all of them. Because of they do not use the proper pull and push steering technique and glance to mirrors too quickly

                Conversely if you said that out loud in many places then you'd probably end up in the bin. Whether or not that's a good thing, you can decide.
