    I worked at OpenTable full-time (More than a year)


    The teach team I worked with were experienced and I learnt a lot from them.


    Since, it's a big company the processes move slow and sometimes it gets frustrating.

    Senior Test Automation Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mumbai
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at OpenTable (Mumbai) in January 2015.


    This position was for Mumbai(India) location, I got call from a recruitment agency. First Interview was on November 23, 2014 and final F2F rounds were on 7th Jan 2015, So its quite long interview process. Got offer after 2 weeks of F2F interviews. Overall process was bit slow, communication could have been better...small one line of email saying "We will get back to you.." also makes a difference sometimes.

    Everything was good about this opportunity except salary part, I was not looking for a job change when I got this call, neither I prepared but when he(recruitment agency) told me about the team and said Salary will not be a problem....I thought why not give a try....!!! Finally salary became the only problem. However no regret, learned several things during interview and again I became hungry to learn, definitely I missed the opportunity to work with excellent guys...!!! Hope they will get better candidate than me and I will get better job/offer than them. Wish them good luck :)

      Round 3 (Coding Assignment): Given a Web API, was asked to come-up with test cases using any framework, language, Integrate with Jenkins. (come-up with test cases, consider covering different types of testing)

      Round 4 (F2F): (Before starting interview, they gave introduction about product, what they are doing, what are the challenges they have. This helped me to understand what they want from me and focused towards the same.) It was pure technical round of various area of testing, coding, logic.

      Round 5 (F2F): same as Round 4.

      Round 6 (F2F): same as Round 4.

      Round 7 (F2F): same as Round 4.

      Round 8 (F2F): Problem solving round, was asked 3 puzzle. By this point I was exhausted, brain was not working as expected ;-) . But was able to solve problem with hint.

      Thats it packup for the day and return to my home city. Overall I won't say I did excellent in interview, when I did my self evaluation after interview I understood that I could have answered few question in better manner...specially for coding questions.   1 Answer
