    Project Coordinator Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at BlackBerry in February 2009.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through their website and received an e-mail from a recruiter a week-ish later with a request for an interview. I live in the Waterloo Region so the interview was held at one of their offices in Waterloo.

    Interview ended up being a full-day long, and rotated between the hiring manager and HR rep, hiring manager and one of the project managers I'd support, hiring manager and the director, and hiring manager and a manager from a different department. Asked a series of questions, primarily on past experiences and how I'd react in different situations.

    Was thanked for coming in and later received phone call (1-1.5 weeks later) offering me the position.

    Interview Questions
    • Some questions relating to PM-BOK lifecycle and process. Nothing too difficult, but a good idea to read through it if you received your designation years ago and forgot some of the fluff parts.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    This was more of a safety position. I had another offer for a position better suited to my skillset at another organization.

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at BlackBerry in February 2008.

    Interview Details

    The interview process started late but it only consisted of 1 phone interview with a member of the team I was applying to. Since the position was for an Intern, the questions were fairly basic...preliminary project management questions and a lot of situational questions like - what would you do if....describe a time when you displayed leadership skills...etc
