I backed out of all interview processes that required technical assessments or unreasonably many interviews. I considered it an insulting waste of my time and a signal of institutional risk aversion and choice paralysis. I easily found a job with a lightweight and decisive decision process.

There’s abundant evidence that these extra hoops are worthless. Even some evidence that they result in *worse* hiring decision. See Kuncel 2010 as just one example. Companies aren’t using these to make the right decision. Managers are using them either to service some fantasy of objectivity or to protect themselves from internal politics. Neither suggests a workplace is one I’d like to join.

Had a very unpleasant experience with the entire interview process at Paytm. First of all they kept all three rounds in a single day . It started from the morning and ended up till the final round at late evenings. After all the rounds were cleared, the HR asked for the expected package, and when I gave him my quote which was just 35% more than my current CTC, he got reluctant and said we only have a budget of an X amount which was just 10% more than my current CTC. Who on earth does that..?

Hi there, I’m about to have an interview at a large tech company (similar to that of google and Facebook but more software driven), and I was curious about what the salary range can be like for an in-house agency producer (mid-level). Glassdoor is saying it could anywhere between $100k-$140k per year at their competitor companies. That’s such a wide range and I’m not sure how accurate that is. Does anyone have a better idea of what to expect?

Need advice. I received an offer from a company after searching for a job for MONTHS and submitting hundreds of applications. Currently unemployed. They are lowballing me by about $20k, on a salary and expect 10-12 hour days, occasional weekends (on top of M-F), and overall no work life balance. I don't want the job, but I financially need it. I finally have heard back from other companies and am expecting to interview, but the offer requires an answer before then. Any advice?
