Walk through new bug reports with a new tester
When a new team member comes in, have them read through the system documentation to gain a better understanding of what the product is supposed to do. It would also be a great help if the person has one-to-one chats with the team and also the wider business team!
Another way you can help the new team member is giving them a walkthrough on how you would go about handling a bug report. The goal is to help the person better understand how the system is meant to work, what’s good about the product, and how the product should not work. With a better understanding, the person will be a more informed and be a more effective critic of the system.
