    • Would you say the iPhone is a competitor to the Blackberry   5 Answers

    Reasons for Declining

    Couple of reasons:
    i was made a competitive offer with a little known company at time that was superior and offered more opportunities to travel.
    The commute between downtown toronto, mississuaga and waterloo was extremly offputting. The design office needs to be an urban center if they want to attract fresh talent.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at BlackBerry (Mississauga, ON (Canada)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and first had a phone screening with the dev manager where he asked me some basic questions about my resume and current position and why I was looking for a change. He described what their team did and what the role would cover.
    Next, I was invited to in person interview where I was interviewed by 2 engineers - the dev manager and another developer. They asked me some security related questions a few of which I didn't know the answers for. The coding questions were easy. But, they were focusing more on the security aspect of the algorithms and not general problem solving skills.
    I guess even if my programming was good I didn't make the cut because of my lack of security knowledge.

    Interview Questions

    • They gave a piece of code and asked to make one of the functions more secure.   Answer Question
