In my case in my last interview, I asked to see some of the codebase. It was a less than ideal situation, and there were no unit tests for the frontend. However, I saw it as an opportunity to make an immediate impact on the dev process.

I ended up accepting the job, but I knew what situation I was entering and what to do to make a difference. Suffice it to say, it has been a great experience for all parties involved, and we took a demo and shipped a major product in under 2 months while solving many critical issues along the way, paving the road for smoother development in other concurrent & future projects.
