automation analyst interview questions shared by candidates
Asking me to wait for time and again for actual interview call with the CEO
My response about the interview would speak for my answer
Hello dear applicant, I'm sorry you didn't have a great experience in your interview process. I am Paul-André, the CEO, and yes, I am the one undertaking the 1st level interview calls. I regret that you had been postponed on more than one occasion. As you know, our scheduling process allowed you, and very many other candidates to schedule 30 minutes in my calendar directly. Clearly, this process seems super efficient at first, but lead to far too many interview calls being scheduled. I'll make sure to adjust our process so that this doesn't happen anymore. One thing I will however continue to do is to personally get involved in the hiring process at our amazing company. As you have applied for a QA position, I can understand your frustration about the quality you felt we project. This is my fault, and I apologize. I encourage any and all feedback regarding me, and baseline, all the time. Although I do like the glassdoor platform alot, I find that it's prone to be used by people with less than expected experiences, and very rarely with those who are happy. On average, for every 1st interview I've asked my EA to postpone, I can assure you that there were another 2 or more that didn't show up. We live in a digital world, it is hard to keep the balance between meeting high expectations and efficiency. Thanks for your feedback. Even if it's quite rough (telling others not to apply), I take your comments seriously. Best regards, Paul-André Savoie CEO & Founder baseline.io
The interview process was really structured as it was segmented in 4 major areas. They started with questions related to my past experience, projects that I worked on, roles and responsibilities, etc. After this, their questions revolved around manual testing concepts, techniques, types of testing, test strategy, test plan, etc. Next in line were questions related to Automation testing such as Frameworks, Structure of a framework, Challenges in building a framework, etc. Last part of the interview was 'White-boarding' where I was given the problem statement and was asked to provide solution using Java programming. I could easily comprehend these scenarios and was able to write meaningful code because QA manager was very clear and detail-oriented in his explanation of the situation.
