QA analyst interview questions shared by candidates
Written Test Question - 4 people with different speeds respectively 1,2,5,10 min and a bridge can only hold 2 persons at a time and you have only 17 min left. How do you cross the bridge?
How about this, just a trial: 10 and 1 in 1st slot total time taken by them- 10 mins 5 and 2 in 2nd slot ,total time taken bye them - 5 mins so they can pass the bridge in 15 mins.
10 minute goes first, along with 5 min individual. The once the individual with the lower time crosses the 10 minute individual is still on the bridge for another 5 mins. so allow 2 min individual onto bridge and 10 min indvidual will have 3 mins left to complete. let 1 min individual cross and they'll be done before the 10 minute individual Total time: 10 mins
No. 1 and No. 2 go across: 2 minutes No. 2 returns with flash: 2 minutes No. 3 and No. 4 go across: 10 minutes No. 1 returns with flash: 1 minute No. 1 and No. 2 go across: 2 minutes = 17 minutes
The guy asked me if I know what the quality means. His example of quality was super-expensive designer bags that his girlfriend impulse-buys on the internet. No, that is NOT a joke. He was visibly not interested in the whole process, I could tell. Not a single technical question, and his answers to mine were vague. My guess is he is a lousy programmer, even though he doesn't have to be one to do his job.
The job profile was for a manual/functional tester, and I never got to see the job requirement. Questions were about general testing workflow and how I would approach certain issues. They were sure that I had testing experience from my opening talk about myself, so they focused on how strong a person I was, if I was capable of managing issues at work, convincing the cross functional teams about the testing process. Basically the group I jumped into had a lot of political issues and they needed strong mouthed people who can win arguments with other teams.
