    QA Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, Co. Dublin
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Scrapinghub (Dublin, Co. Dublin) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a test as a first step to the interview process
    The assignment was to write a test plan for one of their products. I invested around 5-6 hours trying to learn about the product and other aspects of the product , after which I prepared the test plan.

    After submitting the test plan the HR let me know that they would be back with the feedback soon. There was no feedback for 2 weeks. After which I tried to get in touch with the HR to which I got a reply that the role is now closed as someone from within the team has decided to take up the role and they are stopping my interview process.

    What the hell!!!??? Wasted my weekend just to hear this. If this was the case they should have checked within the team before opening a job vacancy. Such a waste of time.
