Manager Interview

Manager
Cambridge, ON (Canada)

I applied in-person and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at BlackBerry in November 2010.

Interview Details – This was an internal move - initial communication was directly with the hiring manager. I was interviewed by 2 peer managers after an interview with HR and the Hiring manager.

Interview Question – There were no unexpected questions: generally, I was moving from a non-resource manager role to that of a resource manager. Questions were around my experience with such a job.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Did not have to negotiate much - I was offered a good starting pay.

Manager Interview

Manager

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.
