I'm not sure what forum to stick this in but seeing as the test was in C++ I thought I'd stick it here but feel free to move.
I recently completed a test for a job application. I completed 2 out of the 3 questions (it was a choose 2 of 3 test). I also tried the third question (a QT one) but couldn't get that done in an evening and had to ask a question on here about it so left it.
Yesterday got told they did not want to carry on the application process due to my test. I asked for feedback and they said "none of the responses you gave worked". I was somewhat surprised at this as although I hadn't done a full automatic testing script (trying to rattle the test of in a few hours) I done several example and they all seemed fine. I got home tonight and checked and sure enough with some more tests I can't see the problem. The responses do work.
Should I ask for more specifics or should I send a screenshot of the program working? Should I send them a script to run the program with dummy arguments? I included a read me and example useage. Maybe they have found a case that does not work, or a limtation on the size of the input that they don't like but if that was the case the style of feedback seems odd given the tone of the email.
