I have been a developer for almost 30 years now. I tried taking that Amazon online test and didn't stand a chance. The test had no relation to what I have been doing in the real world for over half my life. Now I am in the position where I have to look for another job. There are only so many hours in the day, and I am wondering if it is even worth my time to try and study to take that test again.
On top of that the position would be with the "Alexa Entertainment Team". I am confused and dismayed by people who pay to have a listening device in their home. I really, truly, don't understand why anyone would want Amazon listening to everything they say.
Please ignore post, I have no idea what I am talking about.

As someone who was recently on the job market and went through a wide range of interviews, the companies I was most interested in were those that were interested in hearing about my 40 years¹ of experience versus those that just wanted me to solve algorithm problems.
