I sent my cv to this company for a web developer position and they sent me a huge test with a note says: "Don't spend more than 8 hours".
I did the test and I took me more that 8 hours and sent it to the company and after two days I didn't get anything! so I sent them again an email to confirm if they receive my first email or not, and I got this reply !
Thank you for taking the time to do the coding exercise.
We thank you for your interest in ****** and wish you the best in your job search.
I want to send them this email, is it good or bad idea ?
I'm really surprised after I read your reply ! you even didn't take the effort to see my work, my time, my effort !! Does this mean anything to you ???
Does the time of people mean anything to you ???? you gave me a very bad picture about your company.
I'm really angry and disappointed. and this is not the first time this happens with me here in Germany. but this is the first time I got such a huge test with such disrespect to my effort. it's not fair ... My CV is full of PHP and there's no Ruby at all, and I worked with C# in university.
it's not duplicated because this is related to a huge technical test and not only an interview.
The test said I can use any language or technology I want.
Technology: Please feel free to pick whatever technologies you think solve the problem best. But please keep in mind that this story is part of our business critical application.
Thanks for your advise.
Update 3 "FINAL":
After reading all of your comments and answers I decided to move on and not to send anything.
for the future, I will ask for interview before doing a test for a company, ask about the language I want to use before I start solving the test, and sure read more about the company before applying. Thanks for all :)
