    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at BlackBerry (Mississauga, ON (Canada)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and first had a phone screening with the dev manager where he asked me some basic questions about my resume and current position and why I was looking for a change. He described what their team did and what the role would cover.
    Next, I was invited to in person interview where I was interviewed by 2 engineers - the dev manager and another developer. They asked me some security related questions a few of which I didn't know the answers for. The coding questions were easy. But, they were focusing more on the security aspect of the algorithms and not general problem solving skills.
    I guess even if my programming was good I didn't make the cut because of my lack of security knowledge.

    Interview Questions

    • They gave a piece of code and asked to make one of the functions more secure.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at BlackBerry in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interviewer first asked me some things about my background including my projects and internships. After that she asked me many questions about different areas according to the job requirements. The interviewer will keep asking you questions until you can't answer it. So it is a bit harsh.
