    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at BlackBerry (Waterloo, ON (Canada)) in September 2008.

    Interview

    There were three people interviewing separately, 2 technical interviews and one with department Director. The technical interviews were around problem solving skills, algorithms, and one creative problem to solve. I made my homework by going through the interview sites before this interview to see the brain teasers and polish the problem solving skills. The creative problem I was solving was described in details with a C code sketch.
