...but my "test" wasn't so bad. I basically was interviewed by my boss on one day, where he checked to see if I brushed my teeth, and knew how do dress professionally. Then I had an interview with the previous IT guy. The previous IT guy (who was on great terms with my boss) just told my boss that I passed. That was it.
I can totally understand not wanting to be tested during an interview, because for one of MANY reasons, it is insulting, to be honest. I, personally didn't find MY interview with the prior IT guy insulting, because he was good and could tell I could fill his shoes.
I can definitely see the problem with the boss, who has no idea what I'me even supposed to be doing, interviewing me. He wouldn't know if I was BS-ing him or actually telling him answers from my experience.
If you are being tested by another IT professional, I find that it reflects the boss's want for quality work. If it is that insulting, then by all means, get a non-insulting boss. You just might be looking for a day or two longer for work.
