I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at BlackBerry in October 2010.
Interview Details – Straightforward process with phone interviews followed by visit. Met a panel including several people. Not too friendly or excited about their work or company. Focused only on certain points and questions in robotic fashion instead of going through past experience in a conversational way. Got the feeling that either a decision was already made or they wanted to hear things they had in mind. Not too sure if they were actually tuned into the conversation. Expectations for RIM were a lot higher, perhaps lofty considering the company and products. Workplace seemed very dull and boring.
