Software Development Interview

Anonymous Employee

Application Details

I applied through college or university – interviewed at BlackBerry in January 2015.

Interview Details

Briefly spoke about some personal questions and they asked me some legalese type things about my employment eligibility. No coding interviews on this one as it seemed to be more of a first screen, however I have been contacted again for a phone interview. No coding questions got asked but I imagine that will come later.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at BlackBerry.

    Interview Details

    Sent resume on campus job fair. Got a email notification for a 30-minutes phone interview 3 weeks after that job fair. The phone interview has nothing to do with technical problems. The interviewer first introduce the basic information of their company and their development teams. Then he just asked several questions about the resume. Then, he asked about the biggest coding project you did before.

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at BlackBerry.

    Interview Details

    First did a phone interview, which was half technical half behavioral. Was called back to do an inperson interview which lasted most of the day. I was interviewed by different people, in different areas of the company. The first interview was technical while the others were more behavioral, to see if I would fit the office's environment.

    • Coding question was to make a spell checker, which was not too bad.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at BlackBerry.

    Interview Details

    I met them at my college career fair. They were recruiting people for their Milford, Connecticut branch. They had a 45 min phone interview where they asked me to type a program in google documents, a basic number to string conversion for the headers in column for microsoft excel, eg A - 1 .. Z - 26, AA - 27 etc.. I did that and they called for an onsite interview. I surprisingly had 3 one to one HR rounds and only 1 technical round (2 interviewers). In the technical round they asked me to code, if given a dictionary as a huge stream (words separated with commas) and a word to search, how would I find it in the stream. According to me all the rounds went fine, so I am guessing my rejection was only based on the fact that I didnt have much mobile programming experience.

    • One question in the phone interview and one in the onsite technical round, but both were easy...   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at BlackBerry in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    There was a panel of 3 interviewers. They asked about my projects related to operating system, kernel development. They wanted to know details of the projects. So anyone interviewing must go through all the projects on their resume. They just ask all details about them, how, why, any way you could have made it better.

    Interview Questions
    • Details of the projects, whether done in c, c++ or any other language.   Answer Question
