    Game Tester Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gurgaon, Haryana (India)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Babel Media (Gurgaon, Haryana (India)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    If you are a gamer and want to start a career in it, it could be a good place for you.
    The office was amazingly perfect for someone who loves to play games.The staff was looking energetic and helping (i can not say much cause I was there just for my interview but this is what I observed ).Work environment was looking good.
    The biggest let down was the salary 12k in hand yes right 12k.And as they have many US clients working hours will be 5.30PM to 2.30AM for most of the time if not always.They will provide you the cab(pick up and drop) and meal and they will not charge for both. I would say it is not bad because if you have no skills other than playing games.I found this unacceptable because I thought it would be a waste of my caliber cause there you will do nothing but gaming, no coding, no logical involvement other than games.
    About the Interview:
    There were different rounds:
    1.English (simple synonyms(10), An Essay 150 words)
    2.1 to1 interaction
    3.Mechanical Round(8 videos 30min- find the bug and write it in excel sheet(spelling and grammar should be correct))
    4.Technical Interview
    5.Technical Interview(Project Interview)
    6.HR
