    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Guidewire in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position QA (Gray box) Engineer online and i was contacted by the recruiter. He was very good and gave me a nice introduction over the phone and ran me thro the interview process. He set up a phone interview with the hiring manager the next day. The phone interview went fine.

    The Hiring manager asked me about my current job and why am i looking for other opportunities.

    Then i was called for the inperson interview the following week. The first one hour session went well where they asked me few questions on Java basics. A couple of problems were given and i was asked to write programs to solve those. The interviewer verified the programs that i wrote and he suggested me other alternatives to write the programs as well.

    In the next hour,another QA automation person in the company came and showed me a couple of code snippets from their automation scripts, and he asked to automate few actions in their website.
    I struggled in the beginning since they were using GOSU , it is their own programming language and there are some difference in the in the way of writing the regular selenium automation scripts with Java.
    He helped me and answered all my questions and finally i wrote a code snippet and i was able to execute it.

    The 3rd hour was with the hiring manager. This was all theatrical were they asked some questions on my current project, the kind of work i do etc. I was given an given a scenario and was asked to come up with the test cases to test that, this round didnt go well and the interviewer expected me to tell a couple of cases that i didnt think about.

    Overall, it was a good experience and i felt the work atmosphere was very good.

    QA Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Guidewire in March 2009.

    Interview Details

    Was asked totally trivial questions about Java, SQL, and black-box testing
    during a courteous 1-hour 1:1 interview.

    Returned for a planned 4 hour interview in software testing, expecting programming and puzzle questions. Was asked absolutely nothing relevant to testing and software verification during
    the initial 45 minute period by a quirky and non-technical "program manager" who obviously
    had not read my resume at all. As best I could figure from his mindless babbling, the questions
    concerned estimating the priority of testing various drop-boxes and check-boxes in a GUI
    application that he was barely able to even describe. The remainder of the interview didn't
    even take place. I departed and refused to shake the interviewer's hand upon leaving.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Guidewire in January 2008.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter contacted me by phone. After the initial screen, went in for 1:1 meeting. I was suppose to meet with 4 people, but meet only with 2. The questions were typical of asking background of resume and then asking technical questions from resume. SQL questions and basic logic questions.
