    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BlackBerry (Irving, TX) in May 2011.

    Interview

    Received a call from an internal recruiter who offices in a different city and she phone screened me. I was then asked to go in for an onsite interview. The hiring manager and her direct report (the team) both met with me, and spent a long time to go over behavioral interview questions. Organized but relaxed atmosphere and the team meeting was nice. The next step was to meet with the director - but was informed that the position was frozen.
