Surprised by the quantity of coding sessions

I'm on a two week sprint interviewing with a bunch of companies (fangs + a few startups). Done two so far. I'm interviewing for applied/data/ml/research scientist roles. So far I'm getting 1/2 coding sessions per loop. They don't even spend a full session on coding. I feel like I wasted so much time solving LC in the last month (150 mostly top interview/liked questions). Were the last two anamolies? Pretty sure it'll look different at Google for example next week.

    Not sure if you are humble bragging. You are not applying for a SDE role. Why aren’t you surprised that you aren’t asked to demonstrate your culinary skills?

      Wait so getting asked to cook a soufflé in a FAANG interview isn’t common??

    • Nope. It’s more common when you are interviewing for a role as a Dalek in Dr Who

      Why too harsh @banana? ML roles are a mix of science and coding. My expection was that I would get more challenging coding questions. At the same time, I feel like I wasted time doing instead I should have spent time reading recent papers.

    If you applied for an ml role then why will they ask you coding questions ? Maybe 1 to just see if you’re illiterate in front of a computer

    What are the roles you applied for at each of the companies ... if the title is data scientists yes you will be asked sql and a/b testing and ml algorithms ...
    if it’s a SWE role there will be coding , design too
