Not steady work, no benefits, no parking, good team, bad upper management.
Tester/Flex Lead, Contract (Former Employee) – Redmond, WA – December 8, 2015
Team-oriented manual testing and blackbox testing, bug reporting, hardware and software testing. Made a flex-lead for usability testing; ran and recorded usability tests when they were available, manual tester when usability tests were not available.
Advanced testing, designing, and getting involved in the actual testing processes was the best part of the job. The team was great, knowledgeable, and friendly. Skill was acknowledged by greater responsibility and redirection to more important tasks.
The worst part of the job was the risk of having my car towed while out of reach in a high-security area. Second worst was lack of communication with higher management, rapidly changing directives, and not knowing if you are going to work as a minimum wage tester or a higher-paid test lead on any given week.
