FULL DISCUSSION
 

Getting good at that sort of test helps with interviews at Google and likely other large software companies. Personally though, I ask candidates to either:

  • Build an actual small project and come in and do a code review with the team
  • Have the candidate spend half a day with the team to work on a real ticket

As a freelancer, I also declined such requests. I once asked to come in and work with their team, they accepted and we had a great time.
