Though they were hiring for a Senior position, the questions were mostly the type you would ask a junior QA engineer. Questions about definition of terms such as integration testing, functional testing, unit testing and the usual silly one about how you would test a pen. As I said, junior level questions. Nothing about situational scenarios, interacting with Program Managers, testing metrics, situational issues etc. They also quickly made up their mind that I was a hardware engineer even though I am not and clearly stated that in my resume and during the interview. I don't have an Electrical Engineering degree and don't have that kind of knowledge. Very disappointed in the fact that I did not get to spend any length of time with the hiring manager. Instead was quickly whisked out of the building by another person who was not involved in the interview.
