I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at BlackBerry in October 2009.
Interview Details – 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.
Negotiation Details – Students cannot negotiate wages at RIM.

Interview Details –
Communications with the company was done through the university. I received two interviews from RIM. They were very different. The first one was a lot more serious, for a Java developer position. I had 15 other students competing for the position and was the first one interviewed. It was a very pleasant interview, the questions were relatively easy compared to other interviews. The second interview was fun, I got along great with the interviewers and ultimately received a job offer from them. They were very laid back and friendly and I had a great time. The questions were easy (to me at least), any 3rd year student would be able to answer them so long as they paid attention to the first two years of classes. They ended up having to ask me programming questions that were unrelated to the job position, just because they had to give one "at least one question I couldn't fully answer".
It was just one phone interview for both positions because it was for co-op.
Advice to future candidates: Make sure you study OOP very well. Just be yourself.
