    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BlackBerry (Ottawa, ON (Canada)) in February 2016.

    Uncomfortable but comfortable. Interviewers expected a lot from me. They asked about projects on my resume. Seemed to have thoroughly researched me. I was not well prepared for it. There were things on the requirements. Once they hit something I couldn't answer they moved on very quickly as if to try and end the interview sooner. it was a grilling experience

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at BlackBerry (Ottawa, ON (Canada)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Phone Interview with 2 technical managers. Took about 45mins. Was sometimes hard to hear what they were asking since they were on speakerphone so that the two managers could ask questions simultaneously. First they would ask questions about where you see yourself in the future? Then general things such as school as well as projects on resume. After 5mins of that, they start asking specific technical questions. The more answers you answer correctly, they ask deeper ones until you get stuck.

    Easy Interview

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at BlackBerry (Kanata, ON (Canada)) in July 2014.

    Interview

    - Very casual
    - Some simple coding questions (what is an abstract class, create a "shuffle" method, etc...)
    - Basic English required
    - Brief overview on the job description and what the work entailed
    - Phone interview, was given a date of the interview beforehand and the interviewer name
    - No "why do you want to work here" sort of questions

      "You listed XXX experience, could you explain more in detail on the kind of work you did"   Answer Question
