    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BlackBerry (Ottawa, ON (Canada)) in February 2016.

    Uncomfortable but comfortable. Interviewers expected a lot from me. They asked about projects on my resume. Seemed to have thoroughly researched me. I was not well prepared for it. There were things on the requirements. Once they hit something I couldn't answer they moved on very quickly as if to try and end the interview sooner. it was a grilling experience
