    QA Tester Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Rockstar Games.

    Interview

    They ask you 5 questions giving you a short amount of time to prepare. They are quite straight forward and range from:

    "Why are you interested in Rockstar"

    "tell us about the QA process"

    "What can you add"

    The first interview is on one sided video interview where you talk to the web camera and it then gets sent of for review.

    Unfortunately I didn't get an offer but I was not happy that they refused to give me any feedback and did not respond to my email.

    QA Tester Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Rockstar Games.

    Interview

    Standard QA Testing, do stuff from a sheet in allocated time then face to face interview. You are kept to one room so you do not see the other workers nor get to ask them about their opinion on working there or other. It's all very cryptic and unfriendly.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Rockstar Games in January 2018.

    Interview

    Applied on July 2017 and got the first call in January 2018. By this time, I've already spent 2 months in the new company. I informed this to the HR lady and within 3 minutes, I got the email as (exact words) -
    "Thank you so much for your application for the NOC Engineer position at Rockstar Games. We have reviewed your background and qualifications and find that unfortunately it's not going to be a match for this role at the moment."
    I've joined a company which is best place to work in Glassdoor and with a higher position and I am not suitable for this company.
    I doubt if I will be joining this company again!!

    QA - Game Tester Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bengaluru (India)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Rockstar Games (Bengaluru (India)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online. Got an email for a video interview. 5 questions were asked and had to record and submit. Pretty simple. An interview with a person online would have been nice but I think it is not possible due to the volume or applicants.
