Quite interesting that I came across a post that had hundreds of developers asking that the interview process be changed. I think it is just right that technical interviews are done in a different way. Give them time to work on these problems. if they are backend or front end develop[ers, give them task to fulfil in 6 hours or give them pre-built apps to complete a task ot something similar.
This was the same case with me in my job application at
Another problem with such jobs is that it is harder to solve most of the rudimentary problems after you are very advanced and experienced. You tend to forget them.
