  1. Sounds exactly like call center. We had to fill out a language test riddled with mistakes and, since I am a native speaker and extremely pedantic, I corrected the test itself. I also answered e-mails in polite native language and any other foreign language I could speak to the best of my abilities, instead of using generic text blocks as instructed. Had a talking-to by project lead who told me to stop doing things right and fulfill textblock quota if I want to keep the job, so I quit.

    I think there is an overarching lack of leadership. If you don't have a guy / gal with a vision keeping everything together, the departments will split off and do their own thing and try to keep a low profile to keep payments rolling, instead of working on a goal. Same thing in the army. Keep your head low and make sure command doesn't notice your department, sit back, drink coffee, do the minimum, shut up, get paid.

    Really, this "bug reports don't matter" mentality bears striking resemblance to the stuff I've seen throughout my work life.

  2. this video is extremely biased and for whatever reason he believes that the game testers should have most of the say in what happens in the game and doesn’t realize that nerfs or buffs happen when the community notices an issue. he’s talking shit about his job as if he expects to it be ONLY playing video games, no it’s your job to test certain things out and he’s also acting as if he’s the only person testing the game and that he spends months at a time testing 1 thing when yes it could happen but not all the time. he’s salty because he wants to run the show and you can clearly tell by the way he’s shitting on his company. on top of all of that he doesn’t realize that not every company is like his and he looks a stoner dwarf who has nothing better to do than complain

  3. This was informative the thing is all i do is play all day everyday unless im doin sum productive or goin out but the ppl sounds like thatd test me the most, the only reason im saying maybe still is because im really good at any game i touch and feel like youtube/streaming + the job would go so well and help me grow and get on a esports team etc. But this opened my eyes tho. Thanks‼️

  4. ahaha that sounds like my job lol. Dam this is the wrong job, unless you can do it remotely which I'm sure you can, I don't think I would want to even be in an office, exspecially like that!! I think a good strategy would be for you guys to use the same stuff and do the same stuff because otherwise it's just all over the place. If there is a set checklist to follow, then they can compare and see if they need to change a few things with a couple of people. Like they need to break it up into groups. Right!?

  5. It seems like not only in Romania you encounter the problems you've mentioned (as a game tester). Yesterday I was thinking about applying for such a job, and I thought that I should do some research before I proceed. I've seen some feedbacks online from people that have worked for that specific game company, and they also complained about the low wages, the bad team leaders, devs and so on. Now with your video, I know what to expect. Thankies!

  6. Really great video for those want to know about tester job! Thanks bro! Yet I might have a "feedback", hope you don't mind. Basically in the later of your video is several specific problems in your workplace rather than cons about tester jobs. I mean, bad coworkers or leads are everywhere. It's kinda a catholic pain in every industry. Generally, this video is super helpful!! Thanks!
