Look into regular expressions. What's the pattern to read a mac address. They asked some questions about previous work experience and some of the courses being taken at school.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BlackBerry.

    Interview

    Phone interview with a recruiter, followed by a full-day (9:30am - 6pm) on site behavioral interview with 40 other interviewees. To be honest, I found this format entirely ineffective unless all they are looking for is the most outgoing candidate (which is important for sales, but just because you're outgoing doesn't mean you will be good at sales, and doesn't mean you have the skills to advance in the company). But most importantly, Blackberry's sales leaders did hardly ANY selling of why we should want to work for them. I spent a total of 10 minutes talking to actual decision-makers. In the end, I found myself in the group not offered a position alongside some other candidates I was convinced would get an offer. Whole day was a pretty big waste and proved I would not be happy with a position at Blackberry anyway.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BlackBerry.

    Interview

    Unconventional Interviewing format in which a bunch of people just interviewed on the same day. I found it to be ineffective, and frankly took too much time. Overall unless you really want a job with Blackberry, not worth the 12 hour commitment.

    The interview process was very straightforward and fast. I applied through coop office at my university. An interview was scheduled on Friday morning and I was offered the job on the same evening. The hiring manager was very easy on the interview questions and fully understood that I was a second year undergraduate only. It was not very very technical. He asked about the skill set I can bring to the team.

    Enterprise Sales Executive Interview

    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at BlackBerry.

    Interview

    I answered "Declined," as the offer would've come if I'd been willing to "play ball." See below.

    Began process with unsolicited outreach from 3rd party recruiter. Followed by a call with the hiring manager, then lunch with same, an hour long call with his boss, another hour-long call with his boss' boss, as well as a call with the sales engineer (a team compatibility check). I had to fill out a fairly draconian application with 15 years of job history, complete with manager names and compensation. They called 3 past managers for references, and then they asked for W-2's and/or paystubs. When I refused, the process ended. The fact is no employer ever needs your W-2's. They want it for comp negotiation, and any other reason is ethically bankrupt deception. An offer was right behind W-2's and a background check, but personal privacy wasn't something I was willing to sacrifice.
