    I worked at Glu Mobile full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people who help you get through the day. Some solid friendships. Fun events and work gaming leagues.

    Cons

    The pay for QA was below the poverty line. QA were treated in unacceptable ways for years. Management continually handled employee issues in terrible ways. Immense amounts of overtime, sometimes with mere minutes of notice. Depression, poverty, and hopelessness was the general tone of the QA team.

    Advice to Management

    Pay QA with a salary instead of hourly, and pay them the same as all the other departments.

    QA Tester Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Glu Mobile (Toronto, ON) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The interview started with a brief tour at a glance of each floor, while being led to the top floor where the interview would take place. Giving a glimpse into the look of the workplace without divulging to much.
    There was then about 20 minutes of traditional interview questions. My past work, why I wanted to work at Glu, what skills I can bring etc etc.
    Then I was given clear instructions on how to log a bug. Given pen and paper and a tablet and a time limit to play the game and log at least one bug using the proper notation.
