Overall Satisfaction with CodeSignal
I am a student and I personally use it to prepare for my technical interviews. I have given multiple CodeSignal assessments and I feel that it helps a lot in judging how you would do in an actual technical interview. Most of my friends use it for technical assessments and interview preparation since the platform is very informative and has a user-friendly interface.
- Technical Assessments
- Interview Preparation
- Coding Challenges
- The questions in the technical assessments are too random. Sometimes you get doable questions while sometimes you end up getting extremely difficult questions. So I feel they should work on the difficulty settings of all the questions and select questions accordingly.
- They should at least a hint or a solution to the questions we failed to solve during a technical assessment. I mean if you don't let us know how to do it even after the assessment, how are we supposed to improve?
- I guess they should add functionality where we can see if the recruiter that requested our technical assessment, actually decided to move forward with the interview process or rejected us and decided to move on.
- It helps a lot in technical interview preparation.
- You can actually prepare for questions asked by different companies on CodeSignal.
- Sometimes the coding problems you solve on CodeSignal are too easy, while the problems you get in a technical assessment are too difficult. So this sometimes does have a negative impact on a candidate's confidence.
CodeSignal's user interface is way better than both of its competitors. Most of the technical assessments have now shifted to CodeSignal. I feel the quality of practice problems on other platforms is much better as compared to CodeSignal but the quality of problems in a technical assessment is way better on CodeSignal as compared to its competitors. This urges recruiters to go for CodeSignal nowadays.

Would you buy CodeSignal again?
I feel CodeSignal is best suited when a recruiter decides to take a technical assessment of a potential candidate. Proctored mode of technical assessment is literally the best way to judge someone on their problem-solving skills (if this skill is required for the job). But I feel it is not suited for scenarios where the job doesn't require problem-solving skills. There are positions that only require knowledge related to that particular field. So in these cases, I feel that these technical assessments are irrelevant.
