    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.
