    Localisation QA Tester Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Activision (Dublin, Co. Dublin).

    Interview

    Standard but relaxed interview in both English and your language. Short grammar test, short gaming test. Overall very laid back and a good experience. You are interviewed by one permanent staff member and one permanent member of your team.
