    I applied through college or university – interviewed at BlackBerry.

    Interview

    The interview was in person and very conversation based. The questions asked were more to judge personality and how well i would be interacting in a team setting. No situational questions were really asked nor any technical skill based questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at BlackBerry.

    Interview

    I have been contacted first by a recruiter who told me that I had passed the pre-selection process (probably where they discard a lot of applications) and that my résumé would now be made available to the Hiring Manager for review.

    Later, I received an invitation for an interview with who I assume was the team leader, which took place a couple of days after that and lasted for about 45 minutes. There were a lot of technical questions, but I had the chance to talk about my personal projects and the programming competitions I attended.

    Then I received an answer quickly. I was not selected, but it all went fast from there.

    Interview Questions

    • They seem to be working exclusively with C++, so make sure you have an in-depth knowledge of the language. There were mostly "Do you know what is..." and "How would you implement..." on subjects such as communicating between processes, intelligent pointers, multithreading and very specific rules of the language. Needless to say, they want their interns to know their tools.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at BlackBerry (Montreal, QC (Canada)).

    Interview

    Did a phone screening first, after good review I received a technical assessment based on the new bb10 cascades system. Upon successful completion I had a second telephone interview with a director (I was from out of town) and then we moved on to a face to face interview. BlackBerry paid my expenses to travel to Montreal where I had a pretty good interview with a director and several team leads. We talked about my history, my experience and then did a couple very simple technical questions. When I had completed the interview I was told by my contact that I had nailed it and to expect something coming. The company then reviewed my school transcript and decided that a second technical assessment was in order. After my completion of it, they told me they were no longer hiring.

    Interview Questions

    • The second technical assessment was mildly difficult, it involved a small bit of threading and some simple logic.   Answer Question
