QA Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through other source. I interviewed at Qualys.

Interview

I went onsite for a technical round after a phone interview with the hiring manager. I have 10+ years of experience, should say the interview experience at Qualys was nothing but disappointing. There were 4 engineers in the room, plus one over phone. Most of the times they were not in sync as what to ask. They seemed disorganized and couple of interview panelists did not even greet me with polite gesture. The lady who was on phone, seemed to know nothing more than few linux commands but had tons of attitude. One of the interview panelist didn't even know how uname works and she was arguing with me for no reasons. In general, except the guy, rest had very limited knowledge.

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Qualys (Redwood City, CA) in February 2016.

    Process is pretty cool. If you have real experience you can crack it. Hiring team is very nice and smart. They have asked only questions related to job role. Overall experience is good.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Qualys (Redwood City, CA) in November 2011.

    Interview

    Did a phone interview with the manager.Explained my strengths and weakness and what I can bring to the position.Wasn't very clear on what exactly the job requires.Was asked to come onsite

    Had three interviews
    a)2i QA engineers quizzed me on various SQL questions(one of my weaknesses..so didn't do that well)
    b)2 developers quizzed on various Junit related questions and API related questions.At this point I realized the job position didn't meet my qualification and I kind of lost interest.Also one interviewer was extremely rude when I didn't answer some basic question from his view point.I had made it clear in my phone interview what I was bringing to the table.Guess the manager should have communicated to the interviewer.
    c)1:1 interview with the same person whom I had phone interview with.I kind of explained him that this position only needs 20% of my strengths and other things I will have to pick up on the job.

    Overall,the interview experience was bad-I expect the interviewers to be humble about the questions they ask and if the interviewee is not meeting their expectations,it's not end of the world and should be treated as such.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Qualys in May 2009.

    Interview

    Interview Process was tough for a QA position. Had a phone interview with the Dir of QA team. Received an email from hiring manager next day. Scheduled interview the same week. Had 8 people interviewed from different teams (Dev, QA). They all discussed about me while I was still sitting in the room. Last interview was with Dir. again and he only asked about joining date and salary offer.

    Reasons for Declining

    very low salary offer
