Two things:

Leave the Albertson's folk out of this.

TMobile has shit pay and low interview bar - they convert contractors, who later start acting smart.

    Plenty of startups do this. They adopt a Google like interview process with T-mobile pay.

    Most of non-unicorn startups?

    Interviewed at Node which is a Mark Cuban startup. They asked me to implement a k means ML model from scratch with no warmup.

      This actually is not that hard. I would gladly do this over leetcode problems.

      This is very straightforward, provided they let you look at Wikipedia or something

      I would consider this problem as being โ€œhardโ€ to complete in 30-45min interview. Markโ€™s companies typically underpay by a lot as well

    I recently go to onsite with series B startup. Everything is great lots of compliments. They send me take home challenge after that to implement what I recommend to improve their search system. They request amount of work that you can write a conference paper or probably even journal article with it. They request to implement not only advanced method but also simpler ones and compare the results. It is definitely free work. I will send f you later to them. I believe they are completely lost.

      Probably it is fun for you because you want to learn about those topics, not fun for me I do it daily in my current job and do not have much time.

      Beyond that I do not trust them, they seek free work. I gave 1 hour consulting session to VP of product in onsite. This is in NYC and fintech startup. Do not confuse with Silicon Valley. There are many sharks in Wall st

    Note: the interview process varies by team though

      Zume has interviewers who think they are literally saving the world but then you realize they just got out of a coding boot camp.

    Maybe itโ€™s because I only interviewed w unicorns or larger, but Interestingly for me, the interview difficulty and potential pay very well aligned in my last round of interviews
