You say that you work very well with developers to solve problems. How would you handle dealing with an extremely difficult engineer who won't acknowledge possible issues with his code and often won't speak with QA at all?

2 Answers

1. Form a relationship by discussing work when there are no issues. 2. Acknowledge the difficulty and frustrations of the work. Find out what he/she wishes they could change and what would make their lives easier. 3. Ask if you can help in any way? 4. Ask him/her for help which allows them to show off their knowledge. Be appreciative, impressed and thankful. 5. Help them see how you can make them look good by eradicating bugs before customers and management ever see them. 6. Reinforce good behavior. 7. Make #2 happen if you can. Interviewers seemed to like the answer but were very doubtful any of that would ever work with the person they had in mind!

A dwarf-killing giant lines up 10 dwarfs from shortest to tallest. Each dwarf can see all the shortest dwarfs in front of him, but cannot see the dwarfs behind himself. The giant randomly puts a white or black hat on each dwarf. No dwarf can see their own hat. The giant tells all the dwarfs that he will ask each dwarf, starting with the tallest, for the color of his hat. If the dwarf answers incorrectly, the giant will kill the dwarf. Each dwarf can hear the previous answers, but cannot hear when a dwarf is killed. What strategy should be used to kill the fewest dwarfs, and what is the minimum number of dwarfs that can be saved with this strategy?
