    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at BlackBerry (Mississauga, ON (Canada)) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Hiring process was relatively quick. Being from BC they quickly set up a phone conference interview. The interview was mostly technical questions such as how you would test things, but we also touched on past test experiences, some algorithms and optimization, and finally details about the position itself. Overall, the interview went smoothly and I found it was extremely fair for the position.
