I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at BlackBerry in January 2010.

Interview Details – Started looking for full-time job around the end of internship term. I wished to stay at the same team since I'm interested in the task given to me. Discussed with my manager a few times. There wasn't any opening until the last week of the internship term. I was swiftly interviewed my manager and two colleagues, mainly discussed the technical area I will work on. There were a few real interview questions. The following background check and paper works took the most of time in the whole process.

Interview Question – Describe different TCP states and transitions.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Not really. They already know I'm interested to continue working in the same team.
