    Senior QA Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I interviewed at Websense (San Diego, CA) in November 2015.


    I guess there was a miscommunication between wanting a QA that can do mid-level (not Junior) Java development work or just having OOP knowledge. The interviewers should not have said that it's ok to continue on with another language "since it's OOP" if you've already disqualified the answers I'm giving. That would be lying to the interviewee and wasting everyone's time. They loved to attack for Java questions, and ignoring the answers I did well in because they can't understand the language. By the time I got to the SQL question, I just gave up. One of the interviewers from my knowledge had to learn java on the go to get to his position, but I guess they wouldn't afford others the same chance. The Sr. Director of the group has a personality of doing it his way and only his way. Not a place I'd ever want to work with having dealt with that kind of personality before. Any person that gets hired by this company should ask for at least 20k more than what they are offering in the job req. They want too much for too little. If you get the position, you might as well decline and go find a Java Developer position at Google than deal with potential micromanagement drones. They are abrasive for sure. I should have read reviews beforehand about how poor management and people are there.

    Interview Questions

    • SQL Joins, a couple of selenium questions, 3-4 programming logic questions with arrays and loops. A question about black box testing the most frequent consecutive string which would be more efficient to check through Linux command than black box. Nothing but programming questions. Who cares about quality, automation or cultural fit.   Answer Question
