Software Developer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online - interviewed at BlackBerry in December 2011.

Interview Details – Phone interview with usual screening process, asking about past experience, degrees and research. There was a good match with my experience and the requirements for the position. Moved on to a group interview with the manager for the position and a developer. Things did not go well with the manager diminished previous my experience and knowledge and took a turn to the worse with a skill test composed only of tricky questions.

Interview Question – Check if an integer is a power of 2 using the least number of operations.   View Answer
