    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milford, CT
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at BlackBerry.

    Interview Details

    I gave them my resume at a college career fair. They contacted me a few weeks later and set up a phone interview.

    The phone interview consisted of a coding problem, which you had to solve using Google docs while the interviewer watches you. The interviewer was very nice and we fixed a couple bugs in my code together.

    Next I had an on-site interview which lasted all day. I met with 8 different people from the company for 6 interviews and a lunch period. Almost all of the interviews were technical in nature. This includes coding, drawing software diagrams on a whiteboard, and verbally answering some questions. Once again everyone was very nice and they make it very easy for you to succeed.
