|SWE interviews used to be an hour or two. Nowadays they're all-day events. This requires candidates to to effectively "work" an entire day for free.|
It seems to me that we should compensate candidates for their time.
From an employer's perspective, it seems like it might be a good thing to do regardless of whether it's the right thing to do or not
The $500 push would hopefully result in more in-demand candidates taking interviews.
What does HN think? Is it crazy? Is $500 too much, or too low? Is the risk of non-serious candidates too high?
