Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at BlackBerry in November 2011.

Interview Details

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.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at BlackBerry in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at BlackBerry in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Overall this was a great experience - Interviewed on a conference call with 3 people, all part of an individual team, all of which I would end up working with later on. Interview was based heavily on past experiences, some minor technical questions, and a logic question. Overall very relaxed environment, felt really good.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview - lots of technical questions! Brain teasers. Since I was a remote candidate I just did one phone interview. I got my offer just in two weeks. The interviewers were the same people I worked with during my internship. Be prepared to talk about your previous experience and college projects.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Interview Questions
    • Write a function to sort N decks of 52 playing cards represented as an integer array with indexes from 0 to N*52 - 1. You are supplied a random generator that produces numbers from 0 to N - 1 for this task. What is the worst case runtime and memory bound?   View Answer
    • The random number generator has a runtime complexity of O(NlogN), now what is the complexity of the function?   View Answer
