    Tester - QAT Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Interview Details

    Very comprehensive and different. I was asked a variety of different questions for different individuals that all related to the field I was applying for. I found that the questions made me think outside of the normal interview questions and it made me feel confident in the company.

    Human Resources Generalist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Magenic Technologies in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Submitted an application over the weekend and before the end of the workday Monday I had an e-mail from the recruiter asking to set up a phone interview. Immediately responded and set up time for the next morning. That interview last about 30 minutes and went well (very casual). Recruiter reviewed my resume, background and primarily provided more information on the company and position. At the end of the phone interview we scheduled an onsite interview for that Friday with the senior recruiter, she said she would send me a confirmation e-mail since she had to confirm scheduled. I assumed I would hear back later that day but was getting nervous when I didn't hear back until Thursday afternoon. Onsite interview went well, received a tour of the office and was told they were hoping to know later that day which top two (from the 5 they were interviewing) would move into the next interview. I sent a thank you to both recruiters I met with and Wednesday the following week called to inquire about their decision - it has been 2 weeks now and I never heard back. Was really disappointed that they couldn't take the time to send and e-mail or quick phone call to say they had selected other candidates (which knowing their desired timeline for someone to start I have to assume they did).

    Associate Tester - QAT Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Magenic Technologies.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed for an entry level position.The initial interview is a phone interview which took approximately an hour. This was with the recruiter. The next interview was an in person interview with the recruiter, which took approximately an hour and a half. At this time I had to take an assessment based on a powerpoint presentation I received the day before. This test covered how Magenic approached software testing and it was very detailed. During this interview, I had a tour of the office.

    The interview that places the most weight on the decision to hire you is the interview with the actual team. There were 4 people total-- a tester, two developers, and the consulting manager. The tester and developers were part of the team. The questions I was asked ranged from "Why do you want to be in IT," "You applied for ___ but why do you want to be in testing?" "Explain the Systems Development Life Cycle," "Do you know black box/white box testing?"

    I was also asked to write out the code for SQL, draw a data flow diagram, if I knew what an entity relation diagram was, and asked to answer a logic question about light bulbs in a room. The logic question was intended to test my critical thinking process.

    The interviewers for the most part asked reasonable questions that I was prepared for, and when I didn't actually know something I mentioned that. However since I come from a "soft science" field attempting to break into a "hard science" field, a lot of the questions appeared to gauge my intentions for doing so.

    Interview Questions
    • The most unexpected question I was asked was if someone was somehow putting pressure on me to be in IT. I suspect this was asked because I come from a completely different field, but the question itself hinted a bit of suspicion.   View Answer
