often when i read this sentiment expressed i want to ask how you can be so confident that youíre not just seeing really bad anxiety, but then i remember a guy i interviewed who denied that recursion as a concept even existed, so idk

I dislike fizzbuzz. it tells me nothing as an interviewer and even less as an interviewee

give me a problem that contains something your team use a lot. call an api and do a thing, transform some data, make a website show A Thing

alternative have some code prepared and have your interviewee tell you what is happening in said code. I tried this once and it sparked good conversation

i don't think that's what they're saying, although they might be. it's more 'can you look over this code and get a good idea as to what it's doing. what would error conditions look like here? if you had to implement a change, how would you do it?' etc. i don't think they expect them to be familiar with their whole codebase or anything, rather if they're shown a chunk of code and given an explanation as to what it's supposed to be doing, can they start fiddling with it

yeah itís this kind of thing. basically use a code example to start a conversation about code and then determine something about your candidate

I went and interviewed with LEGO and was rejected on a third interview round. The reason? The case I presented wasn't enough. Which I mean, fair enough. Except the hiring manager told me to not do something amazing or polished, don't spend more than a couple of hours on it.

On top of this they were extremely slow to actually get around to the interviews. From first application to actual rejection? 1.5 months.

how long do folks wait before no-showing a candidate?

i was talking to our hr person while waiting today, and she said she never waits more than 2-3 minutes, while i was worried that my 5-8 minutes might be too short.

is it an online meeting? Then I'd give people way more because computers are awful.

If you've reached your waiting limit why not give them a call? You have phones right?

a primary responsibility of the job is showing up to meetings on time via computer. this particular candidate went so far as to insist we use their scheduling software and their video conferencing software for the call instead of our own. i'm definitely not calling someone to see why they didn't show up when i could instead start looking at the resume for my next call.

i'm not so cruel as to only give 2-3 minutes, but by 8 minutes you better have a pretty loving amusing story for me, and a total no-email/no-show is getting a generic rejection letter.

if you're hiring people because they're great at getting on the computer on time then I can see exactly where you're coming from. I assumed you were hiring specialist professionals whose skills are desperately in demand.

it might be a good idea to make your visa sponsoring program more clear when you ask, so that candidates feel more comfortable revealing their status.

every time I see that box "are you legally able to work in the US" I know it's just a box telling me "you will not be considered"

tell me about it. i'm doing interviews for a technical role where we make it clear that we're expecting someone senior who's going to have to be able to operate on their own in pretty demanding environments and half the candidates answered 'not very' when i just point blank asked how technical they were. like come on man i understand poo poo's hard right now but why are you wasting your own time let alone ours with this poo poo?

one of them would straight up answer, 'oh i just had our tech guy do that' to even my softball questions. THIS IS A TECHNICAL ROLE! WE MADE IT REALLY CLEAR IN THE POSTING THAT THIS WAS VERY TECHNICAL!! gently caress

of the remaining half there were a couple that definitely had the gumption and are just talking to us at the wrong time. they'd be excellent hires a year from now when we've managed to put out the fires and have the time to mentor them, but that's not now, sadly.

two candidates though had that dead look in their eye from the beginning that i knew they'd be perfect. they've seen the real poo poo and weren't scared. production servers on fire off the shoulder of Q3. load balancers glitter in the dark against aws-east-1. etc etc

amazing that not only are these people not technical they also can't lie

Denmark is still insane, in that we've had the same low unemployment since the beginning of the pandemic until now, hovering at around 2% at the most. Boomers are exiting the job market pretty rapidly and there are so many positions going unfilled.
