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.

Why automated software testing fails?

Automated software testing has plenty of benefits and a lot of challenges. Despite the availability of a broad array of tools for software automation Silk Test, Selenium, HP QTP, Watir and etc), almost every QA Testing teams struggle with the similar standard architecture issues. In my opinion most of the issues are due to a lack of a preparation and training for building automated software testing framework.

The most common problems with software automation are
  • QA Training - automation testers have to study a lot before they would able to use software test automation tools
  • Tests fail under change - usually automated test would break when the application under test changes. It means QA Testers have to spend valuable time to fix existing automated software testing frameworks.
  • Person dependency - an amazing QA Tester is in charge of the all test automation efforts, but when this person leaves the company no one would support and maintain scripts. In the best case the framework and script would be rewritten by newly hired testers, in the worse case QA Team would abandon test automation and completely switch to manual testing.
