I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BlackBerry (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in March 2014.
Had a 45 minute phone interview with 3 managers.Most questions were about previous job experience, and some academic experience. They also asked if I had any experience with project management software (such as Microsoft Project), and if I was familiar with various communication standards (LTE, GSM, CDMA etc.). The interview process was fairly standard.

I made personal contacts with RIM to see if they had any openings and they had a posting they were about to open to public so i had advance notice. Had a call with HR, then a one to ones with all their senior staff. Interviews went very well.

Reasons for Declining
Couple of reasons: i was made a competitive offer with a little known company at time that was superior and offered more opportunities to travel. The commute between downtown toronto, mississuaga and waterloo was extremly offputting. The design office needs to be an urban center if they want to attract fresh talent.

Some room for salary negotiation, about 10 percent
