Human Resources Interview

Anonymous Employee in Irving, TX
No Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at BlackBerry (Irving, TX) in May 2011.

Interview

Received a call from an internal recruiter who offices in a different city and she phone screened me. I was then asked to go in for an onsite interview. The hiring manager and her direct report (the team) both met with me, and spent a long time to go over behavioral interview questions. Organized but relaxed atmosphere and the team meeting was nice. The next step was to meet with the director - but was informed that the position was frozen.

Interview Questions

  • I was provided with a scenario where three employee relations situations that all occurred at the same time. I was asked how I would handle each of them in what order, then asked why I chose to tackle them in the manner I described.   Answer Question
