Software Tester Interview

Software Tester
Mississauga, ON (Canada)

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at BlackBerry.

Interview Details – 1. Received email from recruiter to schedule an interview: she seemed very enthusiastic and organized
2. Phone interview with manager with tech questions (software based, the usual ones)
3. Phone interview with other manager about problem solving in general
4. Webcam interview (puke!!) with team members, mostly same questions as # 2
5. Assignment given: more technical questions, some problem solving questions
6. In person with manager and director to review assignment and discuss hobbies
7. Phone interview with VP to discuss career goals and hobbies
8. Receive offer, accept offer, do background check, submit paperwork, begin working.

Total span was about 2 months from 1 to 8.

Interview Question – How can you store extra information in a linked list without adding a new data member given that the memory is X byte aligned?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Not able to negotiate. My advice is not to be desperate and if you aren't happy, don't take it! Opt out of the bonus for an increase in base salary and ask for more OFFICIAL vacation.
