Mechanical Designer Co-op Interview

Mechanical Designer Co-op
Sunrise, FL

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed 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.

Interview Questions

  • When you fix a beam to a wall and add a shear force at the end of the beam, where does the beam fail first?   Answer Question
  • Which type of beam would be stronger against a shear force at its end: a hollow circular tube or a solid cylindrical bar both with the same cross-sectional area?   Answer Question
  • If you have a boat in water and you want to sink the boat, how would you go about doing it? How does the boat stay above water normally?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. Pay was very good compared with other companies.
