    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at BlackBerry (Waterloo, ON (Canada)) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Was initially contacted by an HR rep for phone screen to see if I was a fit for the position. The rep told me that I would hear back in 1-2 weeks if I would be selected for an in person interview. A few days after the phone screen, I received an email to go in for an interview. I arrived at the specified time and the HR rep escorted me to a room and went through typical HR questions for about an hour. The next hour was with several engineers asking about my background and experience. The final hour was with the hiring manager and I pretty much went through my resume and explained why I was a good fit for the position.
