Tester interview questions and answers are completely based on the interview I and my friends attended during last years of working experience as Quality Assurance Testers. These SQA questions and scenarios are based only on real experience and were asked during actual QA interviews. Therefore, QA Tester who is looking for a Quality Assurance job will greatly benefit from this. If you are the first time job seeker as a QA Tester, then it can help you even better. Finally, if you are plant to attend an interview, you have to know these questions and answers by heart and must be very smooth in answering these questions. Practice in front of the friends or just a mirror, speak loud and clear. Most of the time, when you study the questions, you feel fine and feel relaxed, but the reality is, at the time of the actual interview, even though you feel you have the knowledge, cannot express it well. It may sound a little rough, but this is everyone’s hard experience. When you come out the interview door, you are deeply regretted. If you cannot remember these by heart, believe me, it may not work. Readers are welcome to post own questions and answers to the following SQA interview questions.

When did you test last time?

The purpose of this interview question for test manager is to figure out how QA manager understands what QA Testers are doing. Usually Test Manager prefers to delegate testing responsibilities and focus on the big picture instead. It is explainable, because in the recent years managers responsibility has grown, test manager may have had less and less time to do the actual testing. A primary QA manager responsibility is to let QA Engineers work smoothly. In order to do that, the manager could try jumping into the testing, trying to backup testers who got sick or on vacation. Sometimes it helps, the manager could discover that there is real test impediments to complete the work on time, tester misunderstood the application, poorly designed test cases, wrongly estimated the time required for testing. The question is why Test Manager hasn't noticed these issues before personally performing test activities of testing team. Instead of jumping back and out into the actual testing, Test manager should consider other ways to get similar insight into testers work. For example, Test Manager could have more discussion with testers during one-on-one or team meetings, create performance metric, audit test results, try to pair with QA testers, drop in during testing, debrief actively and even supervise testers closely from time to time.
