Let me preface this … I am a novice-level (and somehow) a head test engineer for a product in my hometown. I have about less than 2 years experience of manual qa and automation experience. I will be frank, coding is my weakest point. I learned java automation by reverse engineering some legacy code to fit my current project and with a lot of help from the other automation dude that works on a separate product. I have a very thorough understanding of WHY and HOW things work in Java/eclipse/selenium, but I cannot for the life of me write organic/pseudo code (like whiteboarding, etc) without needing to reference back something to help me. Anyways, just letting y’all know my current situation with coding.
So I just applied for a remote qa engineer gig at an amazing company that I’m interested in working at (I plan on moving up there in a few months). My first interview was with HR. went great. Second interview with the QA engineering manager. Went great. THIRD interview was technical, wanted to test my skills in whatever language so I of course did java and I just applied the things I knew to the framework I built for the technical qa tests I built. NOW I’m on my fourth interview. I’m nervous for this interview because I’m gonna be interviewing with 5 members in person, but I’m MAINLY scared of interviewing with the developers. The first three people are the QA manager and two other senior level engineers which I can feel comfortable answering any questions they have with general good confidence. However, I’m scared shitless of the devs. I’m not that spectacular at SQL other than basic queries and I CANNNNNOT write complex pseudo code on the fly (I am not a good test taker ha, but I am good at writing them!!!). I don’t want them to think I’m completely incompetent, but I also don’t know if they are going to ask technical questions??? That’s my biggest concern!
In a typical mixed QAE interview session WITH/INCLUDING devs, will I be asked technical questions? I just need to know so I can prepare accordingly.
