    I applied online – interviewed at BlackBerry in May 2014.

    Interview

    Got a call and was asked some behavioral and technical questions. It seemed pretty easy. Got a mail two days later that i passed the first phone interview. I guess the call was recorded and was probably heard later by the HR and technical personnel's. Was then given a date to come to their facility for a one-on-one interview. Was interviewed by three people. I think two were from HR and one from the technical department. Normal "tell me about a time" kind of questions. The technical questions was pretty simple as they basically wanted to know your thinking pattern and also 1 technical question about exchange servers. By and large, at some point, i noticed one of the HR lady seemed to have lost interest though i wowed her during her own interview session.
    Anyway, i answered all the questions to the best of my knowledge and then i was told they will contact me.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at BlackBerry.

    Interview

    I have been contacted first by a recruiter who told me that I had passed the pre-selection process (probably where they discard a lot of applications) and that my résumé would now be made available to the Hiring Manager for review.

    Later, I received an invitation for an interview with who I assume was the team leader, which took place a couple of days after that and lasted for about 45 minutes. There were a lot of technical questions, but I had the chance to talk about my personal projects and the programming competitions I attended.

    Then I received an answer quickly. I was not selected, but it all went fast from there.

    Interview Questions

    • They seem to be working exclusively with C++, so make sure you have an in-depth knowledge of the language. There were mostly "Do you know what is..." and "How would you implement..." on subjects such as communicating between processes, intelligent pointers, multithreading and very specific rules of the language. Needless to say, they want their interns to know their tools.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at BlackBerry in March 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online via the BlackBerry website - received a notice for a phone interview 3 weeks later.

    The interview was standard. All questions asked (that required a short/long answer response) were behavioural based. Just about every question I was asked required me to draw from my personal experiences. The only technical questions I was asked happened towards the end of the interview on whether or not I: knew what QNX was, had any experience with Linux/Unix, had any experience with reading error logs, any experience with command line prompts in Linux. Be prepared to back up any personal experiences that you draw. IE. I had previous leadership experience that I mentioned; the hiring manager asked me how I would be able to use what I learned from that experience and apply to this position at BlackBerry.

    The interview took roughly 55 minutes; 45 minutes of that involved me answering the employer questions. Phone interview was 1:1, conducted with a person from the User Engagement team.

    tl;dr: If you've had interview experience before, this will be fairly easy.

    Interview Questions

    • All questions asked were behavioural based. Some that I remember off the top of my head: What leadership qualities can you bring to this position? Recall a time where you were unsuccessful in a team setting; what was the outcome? You can find more examples on these types of questions online.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Received an offer from my co-op office 3 days after the interview (even though I was told to expect at MINIMUM to wait a week before hearing back). No negotiations.
