Best interviewing experience?

    Is this really true? I don't think we should take advantage of people, but by that logic isn't the interview itself an invasion of someone's time? If time is the concern, why bring them on site at all?

    Come on... Showing up for an interview is a choice the candidate actively made.

      Yeah yeah, I know this is hyperbole. But completing the exercise is also an active choice.

      We’ve also used a take home challenge as a second chance as well. If people don’t do well in the interview but our gut says we missed something, we’ll give the candidate the option of a take home challenge to show us a different skill set.

      A candidate can drop out at that point. Some do. But we can’t move forward until we’re confident in that candidate.
