    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at BlackBerry (Waterloo, ON (Canada)) in October 2012.

    Applied through school's co-op system and received acknowledgement within two weeks. The interview consisted of the manager and a fellow software developer. The software developer is there mostly to observe your behaviors, occasionally asking you some questions about your resume. Some basic technical questions were asked, but it was mostly behavioral questions such as "what is a good manager to you?"

    • "What defines a good manager to you?" "What is the biggest flop you made?" "If you and I were to get into a conflict, what would you do?" "Tell me about something you do outside of school and work, that you think would differentiate yourself from others."   Answer Question
