    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

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at BlackBerry (Seattle, WA) in April 2013.

    Interview

    A recruiter contacted me for a position. Then, I had two rounds of technical phone screens. The 1st phone screen was about 45 minutes, but the second one was two hours long. Then, I was invited for an onsite interview.

    Phone screen interviews were about algorithms and data structure questions. However, the second phone screen asked some questions in security because it was designed two-hour long. The on-site interview mixed the first and second phone screen topics. A few algorithm/data structure questions and one debugging question in C that was to find errors in a given code (on paper). Then, many questions on computer security topics were asked. Some questions were difficult, but many questions were average.

    Interview Questions

    • Some questions on algorithms, data structure, and computer security.   Answer Question
