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.

What makes a good QA Tester?

There are several QA tester tricks to show uncanny abilities, improve visibility and get promoted very quickly:

  • Submit every typo, misprint as a separate Jira or Bugzilla bug report to inflate the bugs count.
  • In case your QA manager keeps track of number of test cases you written, churn out test cases by copying existing ones or copying the software requirement into another document as detailed test cases.
  • Request one more machine for you desk from QA Manager and make sure that you constantly have an automation test running on this machine
  • Never mention that you have found the bug by a weird accident. All your bugs are results of carefully planned test plan and test cases.
  • Never admit that you forgot to execute some tests, you just keep track of executed test cases on your computer.
  • Never admit that you forgot to submit the bug to Jira or Bugzilla bug tracking tool, you are still working on reproduction steps.
  • If you do not know how to test the certain feature in the application under test, just keep waiting till another QA Tester will test it.
  • When someone catch you sleeping on your desk, tell that you are testing time out feature of web based application.

Happy Testing! :)

These aren't tips for being a good QA Tester. These are just lame excuses for being a bad Tester!!!

I've worked with people like you who always end up getting let go because management discovers how vacuous and lazy you are.

It wasn't until I reached the bottom of the list that I realized this post was tagged, "April 1st", which is commonly known in the United States as "April Fools Day."

Good prank.

I know someone who got promoted to DIRECTOR without knowing a lick about testing - this basically describes the guy - guess what? The product that his group tests - SUCKS!!!
