    Former Employee - QA Tester in Eden Prairie, MN

    I worked at Activision Publishing as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Enjoyed all the people on my team and my managers were great.
    Got testing experience on very large scale projects.

    Cons

    Summer QA Testers are just drones and are treated as such.
    Worked 60 hours a week with no choice of what my one day off was.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow your people to have a work life balance regardless of their position in the company.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Activision Publishing.

    Interview Details

    I had three interviews with this company and all were over the telephone. I had amazing and awesome feedback regarding my interview and was really excited about this opportunity. A couple days went by and I never heard from them. I emailed them about their hiring timetable and when final decisions would be made. Weeks went by and I never heard one thing. Thought it was pretty unprofessional not hearing anything back, since I did recieve really positive feedback about my work experience.
