Senior Systems Quality Engineer Interview

Senior Systems Quality Engineer
Chicago, IL

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Nokia in September 2012.

Interview Details – 4-5 people perform the interview. Normally it is a line manager, HR and couple representatives of the team(QA in my case). Line manager talks about general things such as behavior, methodologies etc. HR talks about compensation etc. QA people will go hard on the experience. Most likely one will have good mobile app experience, another will be server side guy, third - automated testing

Interview Question – Mobile app guy will give an example of a piece of functionality and will ask to collaborate with him on creating test strategy for that feature   View Answer

Negotiation Details – be reasonable
