    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at BlackBerry in December 2012.

    Interview

    Held a company interview at a local hotel to recruit for a new project after layoffs at another company. Went there for several different interviews with multiple managers. After that there were more phone conversations, background checks that had to be done, then the offer letter. All of this took a long time because of the different departments and approvals that these new positions had to go through.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at BlackBerry (New York, NY) in September 2013.

    Interview

    I knew someone at the company but I still started with the internal recruiter screening to start, then I had a phone interview with hiring manager this led to an in person interview with hiring manager and finally an in person interview with head of sales. The process could have been faster but all in all I felt it was a fair interview process, not too stressful.

    There wasn't a lot of negotiation. It was a fair offer based on my last job and my experience.
