QA Engineer
Foster City, CA

The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Visa Inc. in April 2012.

Interview Details – Hi,

I would like to give a honest review about my interview process.
My first interview was with 1:1 with I dont know who. She never introduced herself. but staight way jumped into questions before even entering into the room and be sitted.

Questions were not relevant to QA role. Which QA [tester] will alter table column in db. Is QA allowed to change db structure. So then why this questions.

The interview panel expected you to know coding in java. I dont understand, if we are expect to code who will do actual testing.!!???

Thanks.

Interview Question – update table column   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I don't think I want to do Coding.
