    Game Tester Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, WA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Blackapple Solutions (Bellevue, WA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    You come in and they ask you a few questions about your gaming background, most of the interview is spent taking a test to evaluate your ability to play games and write step by step instructions to help someone trace your exact steps to find a glitch in the game. I got contacted for this job based on my resume which has no game testing experience on it, but I will say you should be familiar and comfortable with console games and Xbox live to do well here. The three game types I dealt with in the interview were a racing game, a soccer game, and a first person shooter. I am not sure if they use these same three for everyone or if it varies from interviewee to interviewee. I put that I have not gotten an offer, but I do not know if I will yet because the interview was earlier this week. They said I will not know if I am hired for 2 weeks, but this form will not let me put nothing in the field for whether I received an offer. The woman I interviewed with said it is likely that I will get the job.

    Interview Questions

    • The interviewer asked me about my gaming history, what games I had played and how recently.   Answer Question

    Game Tester/Localization Tester Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bellevue, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Blackapple Solutions (Bellevue, WA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The basic process consisted of informing me about the job, the pay, and the hours, and then sticking me in front of an Xbox 360 with a couple of sheets of instructions to see whether I could follow them. In addition, for the localization part, I was given a piece of text in the relevant language to translate (back) into English. Straightforward enough, were it not for the fact the Blackapple employees came across as extremely disorganized. I got the impression they'd very recently been tossed into the job of recruiting testers and were still finding their own feet, and at least one of them came off as distinctly unprofessional.

    Interview Questions

    • They didn't really ask any questions, but relied on the skills test using the 360.   Answer Question

    Game Tester Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Blackapple Solutions.

    Interview

    When I was contacted by this company they would not give me a whole lot of information of the job/contract. They would give me details on what was expected and what type looked for, but not what tester I would be, or what company. Where most places Ive worked with on getting testing contracts they would provide all that information. Any time I asked on the phone for more details all they would say is "come in for the interivew they will tell you more"

    When I came in for the interview they handed me a paper with questions, and after I filled it out THEN ASKED all the questions. Nothing showing how much experiance I had, what Ive already been trained doing, etc.

    When it was time to talk about Rates....I have been a tester for 3 years and worked hard to gain the rates Ive earned. They made a WRITTEN AGREEMENT my rates would be $14 hourly.

    Later down this process i guess APPARENTLY I got hired but no one told me. I show up to a meeting, and I dont know why I am even there. When they brought up the rates and everyone in that room is there for $10. I had a private conversation with the guy about it, and showing him the email he COMPLETELY DENIED that agreement. Telling me unless I know another language I will not get paid $14 even though that was a rate they comfrimed with me.

    They did a total bait in switch.
