    Mechanical Designer Internship Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at BlackBerry (Sunrise, FL).

    Interview

    The interview was based only in two questions, and the last question was to give an answer in a concept of mechanical engineering. I guess was not bad for an interview with them. Unfortunately, no answer since then (at least from the company if I was accepted or not), however, the HR said that they choose a candidate and those ones rejected received an email notifying. Email which I never received and thank I wonder to ask, if not I'll be still waiting for a response

It is no secret that Canadians love themselves some Canada, but in this case it came to a head and the Canadians failed. The Blackberry, then known as Research In Motion, stuck their heads in the sand as the bubble grew to alarming levels and did nothing to prepare for the coming burst and fierce competition from Apple and Samsung. Blackberry thought that their model of efficiency and long battery life would hold up when it comes to features. WRONG. They failed to see that people gladly gave up battery life for supreme performance, large beautiful displays, and thin phones. <continued in cons section>” – Full Review
