Advice to Management
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Volition (Champaign, IL).
Job posting on their company website, hiring for temp gig for 1-2 years. Submitted resume and cover letter, got a response asking to write answers to a questionnaire- things like briefly review a game and talk about its strengths and weaknesses, how do you approach challenges, how much do you game, how would you troubleshoot a technical issue. Called back to set up interview, met with two QA Supervisors; pretty straight-forward conversation about previous experience and interests. Played a buggy build of an old project while they watched, and was expected to call-out bugs as they came up.
They said they couldn't pay more than their flat starting rate for temp testers.
