Project Coordinator Interview

Project Coordinator
Waterloo, ON (Canada)

I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at BlackBerry.

Interview Details – Received an initial email that confirmed I was selected for interview by one of the hiring managers, then via email promptly scheduled for an interview over the phone, of which lasted an hour talking mostly precious experiences. One week after the interview I was given an email response congratulating me on landing the position.

Project Coordinator Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Waterloo, ON (Canada)

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at BlackBerry in February 2009.

Interview Details – Applied online through their website and received an e-mail from a recruiter a week-ish later with a request for an interview. I live in the Waterloo Region so the interview was held at one of their offices in Waterloo.

Interview ended up being a full-day long, and rotated between the hiring manager and HR rep, hiring manager and one of the project managers I'd support, hiring manager and the director, and hiring manager and a manager from a different department. Asked a series of questions, primarily on past experiences and how I'd react in different situations.

Was thanked for coming in and later received phone call (1-1.5 weeks later) offering me the position.

Interview Question – Some questions relating to PM-BOK lifecycle and process. Nothing too difficult, but a good idea to read through it if you received your designation years ago and forgot some of the fluff parts.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – This was more of a safety position. I had another offer for a position better suited to my skillset at another organization.

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at BlackBerry in February 2012.

Interview Details – Initially registered with RIM through their website and applied for the position there. Heard back from them after about a week. They gave me a time and asked if it was okay and I replied it was fine. There were 2 interviewers but only 1 person asked the questions. The questions were behavioral since this wasn't a technical job. The questions were standard ones and not tricky at all. The interviewer also rephrased things I had difficulty understanding.

Project Coordinator
Mississauga, ON (Canada)

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at BlackBerry in July 2010.

Interview Details – basic questions were involved like why you applied and what you want to get out of this interview. Not much surprises but went by very quickly. Im not sure how they really evaluate their decision because it wasnt too in depth. I was only applying for a coop 4 month position so maybe thats why. Make sure you have alot of experience to talk about

The process took a day - interviewed at BlackBerry in February 2008.

Interview Details – The interview process started late but it only consisted of 1 phone interview with a member of the team I was applying to.
