We give paid homework assignments to interviewees – Create a React Native app that displays the time in 10 different time zones. Something really easy but will force the candidate to prove they know what they say they know. The problem is, a lot of candidates will have someone do it for them. I don’t mind at all if they use open source or research the solution and take code snippets from elsewhere, but when someone does the work for you, we find out because we walk through the project with the candidate and ask specific questions about their thinking.
