re: HackerRank Is Teaching You to Write Terrible Code VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

One thing I also noticed as someone who has appplied to hundreds of jobs. 100% of the companies that have used Hackerrank on me never even followed up about the solution. If Hackerrank was the first step. You'd expect to discuss some of your implementation and maybe extend functionalities just to confirm you actually wrote the code. Never has this happen.NEVER. I mean not just once. They usually just move you to the next stage and pretend there was never an Hackerrank test.

It means employers just used this to judge if you can write any code at all. The problem is I could have employed anyone to write the code.Why don't you just take a cursory look at my github. That gives more info than Hackerrank.

There is literarily no Haackerrank problem you can't google if you search enough. Except few ones that are custom made by companies. It is a waste of everybodys time.

This 100%! If my resume, cover letter, portfolio, projects, github, linkedin, etc. aren't enough then what are we even doing?

The hiring process really needs to take a step back and reevaluate itself. What's worse is the fact that it's a well known issue and nobody does anything...

 

The best part is that if you google you can find the tests of the company/job you apply for. They don't even bother to iterate the questions.
