Just started the process for a mobile role at Square. Recruiter offered me either a traditional phone screening interview or a take home assignment as the next step. Thoughts on which to do?

      You will spend way too much time on something which can be done far quickly. If the interviewer is impressed in first 10 mins you many not even have a full 30/60 min interview.

    The take home assignments will take literally days to complete. It’s such BS. Meanwhile phone screen is quick and to the point. Don’t be dragged out.

    Take homes are tougher than phone because you can search every possible website if you are stuck
