QA interview questions and answers are completely based on the QA interview I and my friends attended during last years of working experience as Quality Assurance Testers. These tricky QA questions and scenarios are based only on real experience and were asked during actual QA interviews. Therefore, QA Tester who is looking for a Quality Assurance job will greatly benefit from this. If you are the first time job seeker as a QA Tester, then it can help you even better. Finally, if you are plant to attend an interview, you have to know these questions and answers by heart and must be very smooth in answering these questions. Practice in front of the foe or just a mirror, speak loud and clear. All the time, when you study the questions, you feel fine and feel relaxed, but the reality is, at the time of the actual interview, even though you feel you have the knowledge, cannot express it well. It may sound a little rough, but this is everyone’s hard experience. When you come out the interview door, you are deeply regretted. If you cannot remember these by heart, believe me, it may not work. The Testers are welcome to post own questions and answers to the following QA interview questions.

What do you hate about testing?

Tester interview questions usually focused on positive results, like most obvious test interview question is what do you like about testing, but should it be the case. I believe asking reverse interview question would open the real mind of candidate for Test Engineer position and would perfectly describe the software development organization where Test Engineer works now.

The most hated term among all testers is “UI Automation” and the misunderstanding from management around “UI automation”, thinking it is the silver bullet to all software development problems. As result the company spends money on unproductive test automation software.

Next most hated issue would be the developers. Some developers know how to test, when to test and what to test, another just throw the code over the fence with issue so bad that a basic sanity test could have caught as blocking issue.

The testers do not like managers, because every time the customer raises a defect in shipped product the management would question the testing team why this defect was missed during the testing cycle and who missed the issue instead of doing the root cause analysis for the defect. Some managers continuously call Test Engineer as Quality Assurance Engineer while Quality Assurance is a process not a title and request the software application to be QA’s when the meant tested.

Of course test engineers hate themselves. There are testers who get comfortable with what they already know and stop pushing themselves to learn more, other testers doing the same manual tasks again and again, while basic automation should be applied and used.
