"The purpose of quality assurance is to prevent mistakes or defects during the manufacturing process of a product. Employers are looking for someone who pays attention to detail and knows how to troubleshoot issues with a product. During an interview, you may be presented with one of the company's products and asked to explain how you would go about testing and improving it."
Do you believe automation is more important than manual QA?
I won't believe, both r important. we are doing documentation and writing test cases manually, then we are converting manual test cases into test scripts and executing them. It is the process of testing life cycle.
Your question is somewhat vague. When it comes to service tests then automation is more important; When it comes to graphic design manual is more important. when it comes to regression tests automation is more important than manual testing.
In these sorts of interviews you really need to drill down and understand what the interviewer is looking for. A good way to simulate a real interview experience is to do a mock with one of the Workday QA Automation Engineer experts on Prepfully, rated super strongly on TrustPilot... prepfully.com/practice-interviews
