    Software Quality Assurance Lead Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a weekinterviewed at Whole Foods Market (Austin, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    1 phone screen. An in person panel interview that lasted 30 minutes. The technical and behavioral questions were realitively easy mostly about my background and what if scenarios. Pitched some improvements the company could use to streamline their software quality processes from reviewing their websiye. Thought it was odd that recruiter said they do not want me wear suit to the interview, noticed it was mainly hipsters and weirdos when arriving at the office. Did not agree with manager post write up and was curious if she had listened to what i said or read my resume? I personally would not recommed interviewing at this company. Did not think 30 minutes was long enough interview to take deep dives into technical questions seemed like management was more of beginner level ie new grad workers.

    Friend knew Team Leader, took 2-months to get hired. Ridiculous process, waste of time. They are desperate for people. Turnover is incredible. You must put unlimited ability to get hired. They tell you they will work with you on your schedule, they do not, even if you have to take three busses and leave at 4am to be there by 6:30am.
