    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tastefully Simple (Alexandria, MN) in May 2011.

    Interview

    Initially contacted by a Recruiter.Got call from HR generalist,moved on to the next round with QA team lead which was through phone.The next round after that was a onsite panel interview composed of QA Team lead, Project Manager, One person representing dev team, HR generalist and one more Test coordinator.Interview was totally on situation based questions.Nice questions. Got a feedback that i was not moved to next level and the reason that was stated included my answer to why i choose the company and few improvements for its website. I was surprised about the feed back since i said the same answer on my first two rounds of telephonic interview.The panel would take notes of your best practices and tools that you would have used to improve quality.
