Blackberry Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through other source and the process took 2 months - interviewed at BlackBerry.
Interview Details – It was back in 2005 and not sure if it is relevant any more. Got an email from HR person in RIM, he seemed to find my resume on Workopolis. After sending him my resume we arrange a phone pre-screening interview for about a half hour. After several days I had another phone interview with 3-4 tech people. Questions were easy - DNS, SMTP, HTTP, NTP, Linux and Solaris internals, FW, troubleshooting, etc. After passing that I got face2face interview in Waterloo office. It was semi formal interview with 4 people. Same type of questions, no problems answering them and was waiting when they really start asking HARD TECH questions (which i always enjoy on interviews). It turned out they were looking for general knowledge in *wide* area of skills as they planned to train the new hires for huge stack of *in-house* messaging applications which were *really* complex.
Interview Question – all questions were easy. The range of questions was pretty wide - from load balancing and SQL queries to low level Linux stuff, troubleshooting network issues and tuning the kernel and TCP stack. Answer Question

Java Developer Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at BlackBerry in September 2010.
Interview Details – Had 2 interviews - one with the manager and team leads. This was a mix of behavioral and some technical conceptual questions on web services, beans, threading etc. The second interview was all technical with team leads and developers from the team. I was giving some problems or scenarios that I needed to resolve or describe how I would handle them. Was not too difficult. Once I got selected, the final approval from higher management took a month or so to clear.
