How much do QA Engineers (or QA Testers or QA Analysts) make their first couple years?

Do you have any certifications or specific learning paths?

Manual or Automatic Testing?

I think I'm underpaid but want to know more info from those in the field.

I've hired QA engineers for automatic testing at 80k - though we felt the person we hired was going to require some investment because they showed promise, but not clear automation skills.

We didn't consider the COL when we made the offer (the hiring team was biased towards our LCOL area) and later realized the employee lived in a HCOL area.

Tbh QAs that focus on manual testing won’t be on the typical dev salaries.

Depends where you live but if it’s LCOL then it’s only slightly low. The commitment thing your boss is doing is really weird. No one should know about other people being let go before the person, out of respect for that person. That’s a red flag imo
