    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at BlackBerry in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Held a company interview at a local hotel to recruit for a new project after layoffs at another company. Went there for several different interviews with multiple managers. After that there were more phone conversations, background checks that had to be done, then the offer letter. All of this took a long time because of the different departments and approvals that these new positions had to go through.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at BlackBerry.

    Interview Details

    A single call from the hiring manager's team members, started out with some behavioral questions (tell me about yourself, talk about resume, projects and extra-curriculars), and then moved on to some software QA questions, very straight forward. I believe the key here is to show how enthusiastic you are and you should be okay.

    Software Validation Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irving, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at BlackBerry in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    Very logical and reasoned process. After phone screen by hiring manager, I was called in for a formal interview by the Development team lead. When I arrived, I found 3 separate team leads and a senior manager. Each had excellent interviewing skills, asking difficult questions pertaining to the position. The questions became more detailed as they attempted to find my technical limits. However, the interview was still concluded within one hour.
