But after a few months, I also was told to supervise some of the hiring-interviews and/or to do some interview by myself.
There was always a programming task involved, which was clearly very hard, but proved (IMHO) nothing. I wouldn't have passed the test, but I showed, that I am useful. We hired some people, which definitly passed the test, but I didn't want them, and they fired them sooner or later.
And I stoped working for this company too, because it sucked my soul out. After being accused of something, I didn't do, there was the point, were no agreement could be reached. And so I left and it was the happiest day in my life, altough I miss some of my coworkers.
