Welcome to IWETHEY!

New thanks all
I was really over thinking it.
Allocate 100 minutes for test.
3 problems.
1st: given standard emp/dept, total sum of salary by department. 1 minute.
2nd: emp/dept again, gimme count of people by department. 1 minute.
3rd: given series of measurements, show the most recent measurement for each sensor. Problem wanted a correlated subquery, but the time stamps were unique, so I didn't need to match on multiple fields, and could use an simple min(time) feeding an "in" clause. 3 minutes.
Next interview (group attack) being set up.
New Woot! Excellent. Best of luck with the next hurdles.
New face to face setup
In NYC, 3 minute walk from my last job. But they prefer I work from home and simply visit the office occasionally.

New actually, I prefer going in
As long I can control my light and noise. There is way too much opportunity for missed communications and people don't realize how much they lose by not having face to face meetings.
New That depends what you're doing at the time.
When you have a well known objective and a lot of code to produce solitude can be a boon.

But yeh, when you the objective is a bit fuzzy and needs to be clarified with others then you need to be there. Same when you need feedback on what you've done so far.

New Did *they* think it would take that long?

New don't think so
These were essentially the starting queries I'd use to winnow job applicants who claimed to know SQL, and I've seen some horrendous attempts that would take 15 minutes to code that would never run.
New Yeah, they're good screeners
