    Mechanical Designer Co-op Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunrise, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunrise, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at BlackBerry.

    Interview Details

    Talked with recruiter at campus who said BlackBerry wasn't accepting resumes but told me to apply online. After I applied I emailed her later and she responded that the interview process would begin soon. Got contacted for a phone interview with the manager. Interview began with explaining points on my resume while the manager looked for a point to segue into the technical interview. Questions were very technical, asking about different aspects of Mechanics of Materials (beam bending) and a general physics question about buoyancy. Manager was more interested in how I came about finding the answer rather than whether I was right or not. I was contacted a couple weeks later over phone offering me the position.
