    Software Quality Assurance Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Progreso Financiero.

    Interview Details

    There is something shady about this company.

    The interview process was in two phases: one, a remote interview; two, an in person interview.

    The remote interview was done via Google Hangout.

    In the in person interview, I was asked a number of coding questions - pretty standard. I solved every single coding question. I was also asked questions around Quality Assurance principles. I answered every single one of these questions. I must mention that I am a very well qualified, very experienced candidate, but still some of the questions were non-trivial. Still I was very pleased that I answered everything.

    After the interview, I was told that I did not know basic QA principles and fundamentals. Being a person with integrity, I expected my interviewing company to have the same. I asked them how they came up with this feedback. Even after 10 days, they had absolutely nothing to say to me as to how this feedback came to be given to me. I was lucky that I had the hiring manager's email ID. Otherwise, I would have been at a loss telling the recruiters how this type of feedback could have been given. This seems to be some type of political game being played by Progreso Financiero

    I can't prove this but many of the people on the interviewing committee seemed to be not very smart. But to say that somebody does not understand principles and fundamentals is unfair.

    We wrote an email to the manager of the QA team telling her that this feedback made no sense. We went through a recruiting company and the recruiting company's manager was also Cc:d. It is clear that there is something not quite right with this company. I never like to comment on a company's integrity. But in this case, I will make an exception. Let me put in exactly so many words: If you care about your integrity, do not interview with the QA team in this company.

    Sorry, folks, you can't screw me over. Buenos dias!
