    Easy Interview

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BlackBerry (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Applied through online. Got a call within a week and a phone interview was step up for 30 minutes, which was pretty much easy. Then an hour face to face interview was scheduled which is pretty much similar to the questions asked in the phone interview. Should have cleared it. But got an rejection in a couple of days.

    Systems Software Developer Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BlackBerry (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Shortly after sending my resume to the company, I received their request for a phone interview. The phone interview went well, however, the interviewer asked me to work on a coding assignment for five business days.

      > The objective is for us to get a sense of you coding style and work
      > quality..

    Because one full week was a significant investment for any job seekers, I took it seriously. I sent him an email re-stating my skill sets. I listed my proficiency levels of all the skills they required. In addition, I also wrote:

      > Before I start working on this, I would like to confirm that you and your
      > team are open to modern C++ right? I think this is important because if I
      > use modern C++, my coding style will be completely different from a program
      > written in C, but I know some Unix C hacker doesn't like C++.

      > However, that doesn't mean I will not want to use C if I get hired. I will
      > absolutely use whatever you want me to use :). But since I haven't been
      > using C in the last four years, I'm afraid if I'm going to use C for this
      > test, I might not be very productive.

    He replied:

      > Ideally I would like to see your C99 but please use whatever you feel
      > strongest in. I would like to see your best code in your best language. My
      > guess is that any other language would eventually look just as good once you
      > are 100% ramped up.

      > I still think the job posting and your resume are a good match.

    I completed the assignment on time, along with the unit tests as a separate project, makefile, instructions with examples on building the projects and using it from command line, detailed introduction to my design and algorithms, the rationale on my design choices and considerations, as well as third party open source libraries I've used, etc. He replied me:

      > the assignment looks great. I would definitely like to have you in for a
      > more technical interview.

      > Last week we started a process review and I have been informed that hiring
      > is on hold until this is complete on xxxx-xxx. I would like to follow up
      > with you at that time to schedule the interview.

    I replied:

      > Thanks for letting me know. Are you sure you are still going to fill this
      > position after your process review? I will follow up with you after
      > xxxx-xxx.

    He replied:

      > I have not been informed otherwise. So yes, as far as I know I will.

    At this point, I was sure I had been abused. However, after two weeks, I still followed up with him:

      > How's going with your your interview process review? Hopefully you have
      > completed the process by now.

    He replied:

      > unfortunately this job req remains on hold for now. I have you name and will
      > reach out to you as soon as I am able. I don’t know when that might be at
      > the moment. I apologize for the delays.

    I knew it was a lie, so I didn't even bother replying. Needless to say, after six months, I still haven't received anything from this guy.
