    From first touch point from the recruiter and final offer, this took 6 months. The interviews are standard and not difficult for someone who knows the business. Someone who spent many years in the software business should find the interview family easy

    Software Developer Co-Op Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BlackBerry (Waterloo, ON (Canada)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    The process was quite easy for me. I applied through Jobmine and was informed that I was selected for an interview about a month later. The interview itself was on the phone with the head of software development, who spoke to me for about 30 minutes. The interview was primarily focused on my projects and work history. Make sure you know your projects inside and out because they will ask you very detailed questions about the projects. THey will do the same with your work history, make sure you know exactly what you did. Other than that, very easy interview!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BlackBerry.

    Interview

    1 guy and 1 girl on the team I would be working with interviewed me. it was a very easy going interview. A mix of technical questions, and team questions to see how I would fit into the team. No actual coding questions were asked.
    I don't think the position I was applying for was particularly difficult, which is probably why the interview was relaxed.

Everybody in the room was free to ask any question that they felt was necessary to their department/responsibilities. It was a little bit intimidating at first but they made the experience a very comfortable one.
