    Interview

    Interviewing for internship at RIM is a simple process. The first step is to apply online and then the Recruiter contacts you to setup an interview with the Manager/Team Lead. Then it is totally upto the interviewer to go into technical details or interview based on the resume.
    For internship only one round of telephonic interview occurs and the result is communicated in a week's time.

    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milford, CT
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BlackBerry (Milford, CT).

    Interview

    I met them at my college career fair. They were recruiting people for their Milford, Connecticut branch. They had a 45 min phone interview where they asked me to type a program in google documents, a basic number to string conversion for the headers in column for microsoft excel, eg A - 1 .. Z - 26, AA - 27 etc.. I did that and they called for an onsite interview. I surprisingly had 3 one to one HR rounds and only 1 technical round (2 interviewers). In the technical round they asked me to code, if given a dictionary as a huge stream (words separated with commas) and a word to search, how would I find it in the stream. According to me all the rounds went fine, so I am guessing my rejection was only based on the fact that I didnt have much mobile programming experience.

    Interview Questions

    • One question in the phone interview and one in the onsite technical round, but both were easy...   Answer Question
