Measurement Incorporated Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Reader Evaluator Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Measurement Incorporated in March 2014.
Interview Details – The application process was completed entirely online. Transcripts were required as proof of a college degree. Once the application and transcripts were both received, I had to complete an online assessment. Once the assessment was completed, I was called in for an interview where I was informed, in detail, about the organization and my position. While it was disappointing to hear that the work was on a project-to-project basis, I applaud the company for their complete honesty about the drawbacks of working for them. I was not offered work at that point. Invitations to work on a project are emailed to applicants. I received an email within a few weeks to work on their next project and I have worked on three since then.

Negotiation Details – There was nothing to negotiate. Pay and work hours were set in stone.

Senior Quality Assurance Engineer Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Measurement Incorporated in May 2011.
Interview Details – I received an email within 24 hours after submitting my resume offering me an interview. I went for the interview 48 hours later and was told it would take approximately 90 minutes. I met with the manager and 2 other team members where we had a fairly standard interview.
At the end of the interview, the manager took out a laptop and presented me with a list of "reports" for which I should write a SQL query. In addition, I was told to look at their website and develop a set of test cases. No paper/pencil or template was given -- I wound up doing it in MS Excel. I was given just 20 minutes to do this. Rather unnerving with no indication that it was coming.
I would have been nice if they had warned me that there would be some sort of a "skills" test because if you aren't expecting it, you are not in the proper "technical mindset" to write SQL queries off the top of your head. You are shifting gears from your "soft skills" to having to start thinking like an engineer again...
- I was presented with a database diagram. I was given a list of 5 reports that would need to be generated and told to write the SQL code to generate those reports. Answer Question
- I was shown a screen from their web page and told to write test cases to test the web page. No guidance on what should be tested or what features were available on the website or how the website should work... Answer Question
IT Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Measurement Incorporated in March 2009.
Interview Details – The group manager interviews the potential employee, then a panel of employees administer a skills assessment. The interview took less than an hour. The skills assessment was easy - they are mostly making sure you know the basics.
Interview Question – They did not ask any questions about myself or my background. I did all of the talking. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – The negotiating was arranged through the recruiter. Make sure your salary requirements are known to the recruiter and/or Measurement up front and get it in writing.
