    Interview

    I had the WORST experience ever!I applied online and someone from BlackBerry contacted me about the position. I got a phone interview with their head of design and everything went well. They contacted me next day letting me know that got the job!The starting day supposed to be two months after our conversation and I send them all of my documents SSN number and everything to initiating the background check. They told me it will take 10 days to do the background screening and then I can start on the last Monday of August. After two weeks not hearing from them I contacted them, by the way, you need to send 3 emails and 4 phone calls to somebody get back to you!!!! The hr told me they forgot to start the process they will fix the problem and get back to me! I gave my company the two weeks notice and now after one month nobody even answer my emails and I'm no longer with my previous company!!!

    Security Automation Developer Interview

    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.

    Business Development Representative Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BlackBerry.

    Interview

    Phone interview with a recruiter, followed by a full-day (9:30am - 6pm) on site behavioral interview with 40 other interviewees. To be honest, I found this format entirely ineffective unless all they are looking for is the most outgoing candidate (which is important for sales, but just because you're outgoing doesn't mean you will be good at sales, and doesn't mean you have the skills to advance in the company). But most importantly, Blackberry's sales leaders did hardly ANY selling of why we should want to work for them. I spent a total of 10 minutes talking to actual decision-makers. In the end, I found myself in the group not offered a position alongside some other candidates I was convinced would get an offer. Whole day was a pretty big waste and proved I would not be happy with a position at Blackberry anyway.

    SDR Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BlackBerry.

    Interview

    Unconventional Interviewing format in which a bunch of people just interviewed on the same day. I found it to be ineffective, and frankly took too much time. Overall unless you really want a job with Blackberry, not worth the 12 hour commitment.
