I applied to a company and got a phone interview with their in-house recruiter. During the call, he/she did indicate that there will be a technical test. When I asked clarity on what it was they said it was a technical test and would have a time limit of 3 days. From what I heard it looks like a take-home project of sorts.
A week flew by and the recruit sends an email if he/she can send over the test.
I'm worried about:
Taking this test even though I haven't met the hiring manager or even had a chat with anyone on the actual team. I had only a phone interview with the in-house recruiter.
this "pre-interview take-home test taking more than a couple of hours" sounds fishy
Are these red flags?
NB: this is for a data engineer position at a not well-known tech company.
