Interview

They said they were hiring for a UX researcher but then send me a test task for a product manager (create MVP and calculate unit economy), and that was not a mistake - they just had no idea what does a researcher do. I said I will not procede with them. I was shocked that one of the largest IT companies in Russia has such bad hiring practices. One month later they reposted the job ad - I guess they could not find anybody.
