recruiter from a particular social media company approached me, & i’m honestly rather amazed at how perfectly geared
their interview process is at the type of people i would
call “know-it-all”s (in the bad sense). it’s this perfectly evolved machine to do utterly pointless things

frankly the idea that they want me to spend multiple weeks to prep for a timed 30-minute coding interview specifically about aglorithm and datastructure questions that are for the most part irrelevant to ios dev is really obnoxious to me.

not to mention the fact if your interview questions require that much prep then maybe you are failing at measuring relevant metrics for the candidate? it really feels like this is just to screen out people that aren’t fanatical about working for them. that seems toxic to me.
