    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ottawa, ON (Canada)

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BlackBerry (Ottawa, ON (Canada)) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Traveled to Ottawan, ON for the interview. Conducted a 1:1 interview with a senior developer that lasted for approximately 30 minutes. The interviewer wasn't friendly at all, so it made the interview experience a sour one. He led me into the room and started by asking my previous work experience and then follow up with an algorithm problem, and was then followed by straight forward general questions regarding JAVA.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at BlackBerry (Waterloo, ON (Canada)) in September 2008.

    Interview

    There were three people interviewing separately, 2 technical interviews and one with department Director. The technical interviews were around problem solving skills, algorithms, and one creative problem to solve. I made my homework by going through the interview sites before this interview to see the brain teasers and polish the problem solving skills. The creative problem I was solving was described in details with a C code sketch.
