    It’s important to note that this is very specific to different companies, and not necessarily generalizable to ALL QA testing experiences. Some companies can be really great to work on QA for!

    I run the QA program at a game company (not a AAA company, but a big budget indie or "triple i" company) and I use this video as lessons for what _not_ to do in overseeing our testing program.

    Sounds like every Company with a corporate ladder I’ve ever worked for… except video games instead of income reports. Work sucks no matter what field you’re in. That’s why they pay you.

    Is it possible to work your way up from game tester to like a lead director, or like a producer?

  4. Toni MMC on June 23, 2021 at 12:39 am

    The way I see QA in terms of feedback: despite the word "Quality" in the job, we don’t get to have a say in quality. Just functionality.

    You worked for Blizerd?

  11. IAN PORTER.MP4 on June 23, 2021 at 12:44 am

  12. Ashley on June 23, 2021 at 12:45 am

    I was thinking about applying to do this but I’m rethinking it.

  13. Kristiyan Simov on June 23, 2021 at 12:47 am

    A lot of the problems you mentioned like toxic workplace, bad management, boring and repetitive work and etc. Are present in other office jobs.

  14. CmPro Gameplays on June 23, 2021 at 12:47 am

    It’s not that bad compare to my current job working on QA trash insurance greedy company

  15. Bodark Zulu on June 23, 2021 at 12:48 am

    I really just want any job involved with a gaming company

  16. Supreme Marteen on June 23, 2021 at 12:48 am

    you kinda sound hurt lowkey. But after working in customer service idk how this could be a "terrible job"

  17. Mike Mao Che on June 23, 2021 at 12:49 am

    I don’t let you say that all devs have an easy life. Some of them overwork because of the company’s care.

  18. Ducky Bo on June 23, 2021 at 12:49 am

    6:00 i was expecting something about sjw’s lol 😂

  19. AdiYT on June 23, 2021 at 12:49 am

  20. Graham MacMillan on June 23, 2021 at 12:50 am

    I’m sorry but a “game tester” sounds as it is an easy job. This man makes it sound like he is labouring, which is false and anyone with this job should be thankful.

  21. Just Beats 'n Beats on June 23, 2021 at 12:54 am

    Video Game Testing may get boring but still sounds fun.
    I like going through checklists and stuff.

  22. Carlos Oliveira on June 23, 2021 at 12:56 am

    I want to be game tester because i have no friends, no social life and i like to play games

  23. Jumby 853 on June 23, 2021 at 12:56 am

    Okay, lets be honest every business and industry is not perfect, there’s always some sort of drama at every workplace I’ve been in when it comes to the behind the scenes work. Its saying called shit happens. Its just how well you cope with it. Obviously if your getting abused or other stuff that’s not right and you should leave but you have got to understand every workplace has issues.

  24. Donshovi on June 23, 2021 at 12:57 am

    if you ask me
    half of those cons are subjective and that was a bad work environment
    not all of em are like that but i came looking for info for the career im going into
    and i found some great info
    so thanks

  25. 。 Hiss on June 23, 2021 at 12:58 am

    This still sounds about 100 times better than my previous job.

  26. Creepy Joe Biden on June 23, 2021 at 12:59 am

    Do they drug test you

  27. xinyuActor on June 23, 2021 at 1:00 am

    I never believe in "a job you enjoy doing". It could be less shit, and the people you work with can be nicer, but a job is a job is a job. Treat it professionally, stick to your scope, give respect get respect, go for a walk making coffee more, prepare eye drops. Don’t have lunch at your desk. Though working in game industry can feel like everyone chats like they’re on Discord, but don’t be fooled don’t get too emotionally attached. If you think you’re better off becoming help desk or customer service, your call really.

    Autism does gift people with a superior levels of observation capability it’s why they have been found to produce better results than normal people even in programming, I studied multimedia and there was alway at least 2 autistic’s it every class indeed with stronger capabilities than people think. Most just think it causes stupidity yet according to psychological professionals Einstein and many other geniuses had it even though it’s hard to believe. They do indeed get emotional stress but it’s not always found in everyone diagnosed as a high functioning autistic more those near low functioning.

  29. Romeo Rodiles on June 23, 2021 at 1:04 am

    What company was it??

  30. Walter Skypeck on June 23, 2021 at 1:05 am

    Sounds like you worked for activision. Lol

  31. Mr. Prog on June 23, 2021 at 1:05 am

    A lot of these issues honestly sound like generic office work problems that you could have anywhere.

  32. Jumby 853 on June 23, 2021 at 1:05 am

    I’m guessing the company he worked at was EA

  33. Anna Krok Cardoso Landim on June 23, 2021 at 1:10 am

    I really appreciate your honesty

  34. KaiserTrigger on June 23, 2021 at 1:11 am

    I kind of expected the "SJW" incidents. It seems gaming devs have a habit of hiring them.

  35. SuperWiiBros08 on June 23, 2021 at 1:11 am

    I mean what do you expect when being a game tester, is right there in the name if you think about it deeply

  36. Evan Grace on June 23, 2021 at 1:11 am

    I’m curious if you’ve ever had a time we’re you just went nah I’m not doing that like something ridiculous.
    Also I’m 16 and I’m trying to look into this as a job but this seems pretty bad would you recommend it as a first type thing?

  37. Gustavo Pereira on June 23, 2021 at 1:12 am

    Hello,im Brazilian, can you tell if this "profession" is something that anyone from any country can do?

  38. Black Man Progressive News on June 23, 2021 at 1:14 am

    Women hitting on men. Sounds like a fun job. Lol.

  39. Caniggula on June 23, 2021 at 1:16 am

    Mundane, boring repetition, favoritism, a cornucopia of personalities. Sounds like the kind of work culture you can run into at any job. This wasnt helpful TBH. I dont care about a shitty lead, Id be more interested in knowing about average pay and flexibility. Whether you’re likely to see mostly part-time or if full-time standard. How competitive the market is. Can you do this remotely or does the company keep things in house to minimize leaks? Tips to prepare for a career. Things like that.

  40. samuel villarreal on June 23, 2021 at 1:16 am

    So don’t work at a triple a studio got it

  41. Maria HollyxX on June 23, 2021 at 1:17 am

    How I’am supposed to show I have game experience ? Like how I play games or what ?

  42. Miser Piggins on June 23, 2021 at 1:17 am

    i feel like some of these negatives are probably tied to your specific company only

  43. Merlin on June 23, 2021 at 1:19 am

    Sounds like a particularly toxic work environment, definitely not a standard of the role…

    as for doing the same thing over and over like testing every gun… that’s just the role

  44. bob johnson on June 23, 2021 at 1:19 am

    lights are always off bro. sorry.

  45. MarvelBoi34 on June 23, 2021 at 1:21 am

    I just applied to a AAA gaming company as a Game Test Analyst which I hope I get the position. I heard people that work there as a Game Tester have fun at their employment!!

  46. DudeWat on June 23, 2021 at 1:23 am

    3:33 This blows my fucking mind. That this could happen. It’s something I hear about time and time again.

    What kind of company:
    A) Hires people right before the training staff leaves for vacation?
    B) Allows their training staff to go on vacation right before hiring new staff?

    It’s just mind-numbing. How dumb of a manager are you? "Here, 4 new people who are going to be extremely unproductive for 2 weeks each. That’s 2 full monthly salaries thrown down the toilet."

  47. maylizzle on June 23, 2021 at 1:23 am

    This is like the most bias video ive seen in awhile lol. Sounds like you just had a terrible experience with the company. The job itself sounds fine when you leave out the SJW’s, raging autistics & the lack of communication within the company you worked for… lmfao.

  48. Mike Spector on June 23, 2021 at 1:23 am

    Donuts are sugar to get you energize.

  49. Help me Killer on June 23, 2021 at 1:25 am

    Seems like a job
