I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BlackBerry (Cary, NC) in November 2011.
After applying for the position, they reached out to set up an on site interview. The interview consisted of my future team leader and one other team member. The interview consisted of basic questions like time management, working in a team environment, and other common questions. They also ask about your school projects and your role for those projects. Overall, the process was pleasant, and the turnaround time was quick for me as well. It only took them a weekend to make the offer, which I accepted.

I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at BlackBerry (Sunrise, FL) in August 2011.
I applied online and the hiring manager mailed me asking for a date. I replied with the date and the manager was actually busy on that date, so he wanted to have the interview before that date and he mailed me. I was okay with it. It was a good interview with some technical and project based questions.
For interns, they have a specific offer and you wouldn't complain because RIM pays you WELL !! :)
