Fast-Nop2791017dIt's an easy way to find out whether the applicant is fine with weekend work.
Voxera776717dDepends. If you already got a job its probably easier to find time over the weekend
I'll say it more directly:
At least you know they won't respect your time or provide anything resembling work life balance.
AlmondSauce877517dIt's probably an automated system that gives you 3 days to complete it or something like that.
I wouldn't take it as an immediate dick move personally, especially if it just requires a few hours of time - if working full time it's often easier to find time at the weekends for this stuff anyway. If it's a problem, or you want to test the water, just message and ask if you can have longer as you're not available this weekend. Their response could be enlightening.
DevRage498117dIts a test if you value your weekend or not
C0D45695017dIf your working full time, I wouldn't expect you to do the test during work hours.
If you're serious about switching jobs, would you stay up doing a code test till 3AM then go to work the next day, or spend your weekend doing the test?
If your not working already, then how's it matter, you want a job don't you?
