Building on from my question here: https://support.invisionapp.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360055330872-Do-designers-need-a-CV-?page=1#community_comment_360008532312
Someone mentioned that testing designers is a good way to judge skills.
What do people think to testing designers?
My personal opinion on having done tests is I loathe them but respect why they're there. Being on the receiving end of them its alot of effort for (potentially) not alot of return.
Here in the UK its often that when you get a job you get a 3 or 6 month probation period where you can be dismissed without reason with very little notice if things arent working out (its rare that this occurs). So if you test a designer Id like to see the probation period down to 3 months rather than 6, but this again rarely happens.
What are peoples thoughts?
