Selenium Interview Questions
If you are an Automation Engineer or working as a Manual tester and looking to switch to Automation profile, then this is a perfect place to start for Interview preparation. The level of Interview questions for Selenium Automation profile depends on the experience of the candidate.
If you have experience somewhere between 2-5 years then you can expect more questions from Selenium itself. But if you have more than 5 years of experience then get ready for questions related to the framework, design patterns, CI (Continous Integration), CD (Continous Delivery) etc.
Topics to cover for Interviews:
Selenium As a Subject:
In Selenium WebDriver cover topics like All Selenium basic Commands, How to work with different browsers, Synchronization using different wait commands, Scenarios like Window switching, Alert Handling, Frame Handling, Different Mouse Operation, Locators and Identifiers – especially XPath and CSS Selector, working with dropdown, tables etc, Integration of Selenium with other Automation tools like AutoIT, Sikuli etc.

CI another popular section; Continous Integration Testing means running function tests periodically. Jenkins is one of the popular tool available for CI. The expectations of Interviewer here will be to have knowledge about the creation of jobs and running them regularly (at the same time every day or week), or to execute the test cases based on some events, sending emails of fail/pass test cases to all stakeholders, etc.
