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.

Mobile Testing Interview Questions

Recently mobile interview questions become very popular, the reason is the mobile application development is blooming and companies want to hire most experienced mobile application QA Testers who will heroically face a multitude of challenges due to the increased complexity of testing across different mobile devices, carriers, operation systems, languages and locations. We use most common mobile interview questions described below to find the best QA Testers who will provide rapid and adequate testing coverage required by today’s mobile environment without sacrificing application quality.

The right approach for interviewingcould be the following, Test Manager has to hire a good QA Tester first. Microsoft, Google, Apple, Amazon and other mobile players released several new mobile operation systems in last few years so we live in rapidly changing world and QA Manager have to hire QA Tester who can learn and adopt new things like Windows Mobile 7, Android Honeycomb, iPhone 5, Kindle Fire or Droid fast. It could be done after screening testers resume during regular phone interview by asking typical interview questions. Unlike other testing fields - QA Engineers almost always have to have a sense of the interface, I mean that the testers should have a feel of clean mobile interface, so investigate an ability to test functional interfaces by showing basic mobile application and asking if he interface is usable or just plain terrible.

Finally after checking QA resume, phone interview and passing testing and usability skills exam, hiring manager could continue with typical mobile interview questions verifying mobile testing experience:

  • What is the difference between mobile web vs native application?
  • Would you recommend to develop mobile web vs native application?
  • What is the latest device available for iOS, Android or Windows Mobile 7?
  • Tell the difference between Android Gingerbread and Android Honeycomb operations systems?
  • Explain in details the challenges of mobile application testing?
  • How would you do functionality testing in mobile world?
  • How would you approach mobile application usability testing?
  • Do you have a performance testing experience for mobile applications?
  • How do you test that the mobile app design will be consistent across the different phones?
  • What do you have to do to test a new application on a real phone?
  • What are pros and cons of using mobile emulators and simulators for mobile testing?
  • How would you implement test automation for mobile testing?
  • Can we test mobile apps using Selenium test automation tool?
  • Would you recommend to implement Agile for mobile testing?

I hope that every QA Manager would incorporate these mobile interview questions in the hiring process, and the mobile testing will be no longer a neglected phase of mobile application development.
