    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BlackBerry (Cary, NC (US)) in November 2011.

    Interview

    After applying for the position, they reached out to set up an on site interview. The interview consisted of my future team leader and one other team member. The interview consisted of basic questions like time management, working in a team environment, and other common questions. They also ask about your school projects and your role for those projects. Overall, the process was pleasant, and the turnaround time was quick for me as well. It only took them a weekend to make the offer, which I accepted.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BlackBerry (Mississauga, ON (Canada)) in July 2014.

    Interview

    It was a phone interview and the HR person didn't attend it for a personal reason. They asked a lot about my past personal project. (Things like how is this part working, etc) They also made a very comfortable interview atmosphere. I prepared quite a bit on this interview, but ended up not saying much what I was going to say.

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at BlackBerry in January 2008.

    Interview

    It's a conference call with a few developers and one team lead on the line. Some basic C/C++ programming questions and general knowledge of wireless networks, socket programming questions were asked. My background and experience in school was also asked. An offer is delivered shortly afterwards. The interview process is smooth and not difficult. Relocation was also offered.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    An offer was made, the salary is reasonable. So I didn't negotiate as it was just a co-op term contract.

    Anonymous Employee in Waterloo, ON (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BlackBerry (Waterloo, ON (Canada)) in October 2009.

    Interview

    I applied on 3 developer positions, and upon receiving my resume HR applied me to 11 jobs. From that 11, 5 immediately requested phone interviews. The interviews were for the most part very technical in nature, and were conducted by people in charge of small developer teams. I found there were few questions about the essential skills listed on the job postings, but many from the additional assets section. A lot of questions focused on hypothetical problems, or the nature of past technical challenges. Beware of very strong asian accents, I had a lot of trouble understanding questions because of the interviewer's nationality and their use of speaker phones. I received offers on every job all at once, so I believe you have to wait until every interview has been conducted before finding out how you did.
