I’ve been applying to companies for PM Roles. Literally 3-4 companies contacted now asking for assignments (metrics or product sense) to be submitted in 1-2 days, as first/second round. I’m stuck in the thought of finishing all of it, amidst my busy day job 😑. Why are companies doing this? Aren’t interviews simple and time effective?

I am more interested to know what kind of answers are expected out of such questions. I mean product metrics and strategy is all about what and why.

You can always ask for more time to complete stating your current level of engagement at work or if you are busy ask them to schedule in a while.

I did same for 2 companies as there was a planned release coming so told them I won't take up assignments in next 2 weeks, post that I can take.

Are there any readymade templates to use for these kinds of questions

One can definitely follow a pattern or schema to answer such questions. But my worry is the time consumption on the assignments. Any strategy or metric questions can be asked in the interview itself, and UX related can be a simple assignment to test the skill set. But having it all to be done in paper with short time span, with many companies requesting the same and with a super busy day job- huh, is really a sour experience.
