Fun Workplace with team outings.
Quality Assurance Video Game Tester (Current Employee) – Montréal, QC – 3 February 2016
Overall I really enjoy working at VMC. The people are young, but very nice, and there's the opportunity to test all kinds of video games. It has an open office atmosphere.
Works hours vary from 7am - 3 or 3:30 pm, 9-5 or overnight shifts depending on the job you have.
The most enjoyable part about this job is how much fun it can be.
The least enjoyable part is that you're hired on a contract basis. Projects can last anywhere from a few months to a year (maybe more for bigger titles), and the quality of your work, you being constantly being evaluated determines if you'll remain on a team or put on call or fired.
• Full health benefits upon hire
• Better than Babel because once you're on a project you stay there until it ends (they don't email you your schedule nightly)
Testing AAA titles and having fun, full health benefits
Contract work - unstable, not permanent, could be laid off any time
