QA Engineer Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Deluxe Entertainment.
Interview Details – Called me for interview and had two rounds with 3 people in the panel in each round. They asked me in the first round questions about my past work experience. One of the significant questions was ' Whether I have had any problems with my bosses in the past' I was wondering why they asked that because i never had such a problem before. Now I know why because its quite difficult to stay in that company and say the same after having worked there. They also asked me a few other questions. The technical round had some easy practical questions and some more complicated theoretical questions.
- They asked some quite easy programming questions. Something like given a sentence, find how many 'a's are there. And other questions along these lines. View Answer
- All other questions were regarding past experiences and work that I have done. Answer Question

Video Technician Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Deluxe Entertainment in February 2014.
Interview Details – Applied online at Deluxe Job board. Several weeks later received an email from HR asking for more information from me. Shortly after received a phone call to schedule an in-person interview. In-person interview scheduled for a few days later. Interview questions were generally standard and I got a good feeling, however the job ad had not noted this was a swing-shift position, so I had to opt out. Most of their ads do specify if they are, but this one didn't and it wasn't mentioned to me over my phone call either, so I had no clue. Noted below are the questions/parts I had difficulty with.
- What are you most passionate about? Answer Question
- Very specific written test for what is a highly visual/hands-on position. Asking which keys you would use to do a certain thing in FCP which if you use a lot just becomes second nature. But overall the questions made sense as to why they would be asking, I would have just preferred a practical exam. Answer Question
