I was interviewing for a Strategy role at this popular Internet company that I thought I wanted to work for.
I did a 15-min chat with the Hiring Manager on a Friday. He was really enthusiastic, and appreciated my experience. I got a follow up email from him that following Monday stating that he wanted to move me forward in the process. He wants me to complete a "take-home" assessment that will take roughly 6-8 hours to finish and submit within 24hours of receiving it. I've read a lot of disturbing interview reviews on Glassdoor from recent applicants in the same role. They're stating it's a waste of time to do the assessment as they don't give you any feedback on it. Also, the interview process consists of 7 rounds. I'm still not entirely sure what the job actually pays. What are your thoughts? Should companies assign "homework" to candidates as a way of "weeding" them out for non-technical roles?
