A typical day consisted of morning meetings held through Skype. During this meeting each team member reviewed the previous day, their plan for that day, and road blocks encountered. For the daily work, it consisted of testing either ad hoc or given guidelines through test cases, possible meetings for software/hardware updates and team goals for the day. The frequent meetings kept individuals abreast of the others status, shared problem information, and received announcements.
While working with this group, I learned their testing approach and to apply different types of test scenarios. I also was exposed to the various options not frequently used in Excel. A major experience was testing on the MAC operating system. I was not a MAC user, but was one of only two testing on the MAC.
Management was responsive, cooperative and worked well together. I attribute this to the of the open meeting forums.
My co-workers were good to work with, we all had our individual goals in order to meet the company goal, but they communicated the group as they found various issues or resolutions.
The hardest part of the job was to find defects (and not repeat an existing defect) after the product had been viewed several times.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the objective of the product: to ensure computerized testing in the academic setting was functional and met the administrators objectives.
