    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at BlackBerry (Sunrise, FL) in June 2012.

    Interview

    HR Screening. I obtained a phone call from the human resources department and was asked a number of generic questions about my education, experience and knowledge of regular computer applications/software.
    Manager phone call of one hour. He asked me more specific questions on the software I used and the projects I worked on.
    In-house interview with hiring manager. More in-depth questions on my project management experience.
    Team interview. A little more relaxed but the employees threw a couple of questions from time to time about my experience and challenges working in a team environment.
    Final interview with Director and VP. They just wanted to see how I managed myself with more senior managers and to see if they had a favorable opinion about my potential contributions if added to the team

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at BlackBerry (Chicago, IL) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Hiring manager was rude, condescending and seemed a little bothered that he had to have a call with me. I found him to be 'phishing' for competitive info vs discussing what the role was about and how my skills would be applicable to the company's objetives. Probably the worst interview I ever had. Based on this leadership I wouldn't recommend this company for employment. I don't know what I was thinking when I applied, I was hopeful it would be interesting but based off my first conversation, I can see why Blackberry scraped the bottom of the barrel to have this guy running their company

    AP Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Mateo, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at BlackBerry (San Mateo, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Very odd and not convenient. I interviewed with four people *separately* for about 20 minutes each. It was confusing when each interview started what their names were, what there title was and how they related to the position I was interviewing for. Most interview questions overlapped, so I repeated about 50% of the same question/answer to most of them. I've interviewed many, many times. I've had 7 person group interviews and once I did have 3 people interview me separately but one of them was HR so it made sense. At the end of the interview it was clear they didn't ever intend to hire me because I had to reschedule the interview from the previous day because I had surgery that morning and my voice was very hoarse. I feel like they just interviewed me to make the temp agency happy but it ended up being a huge waste of my time. They also mentioned I didn't have enough full cycle experience although it wasn't mentioned in the job description. They also had reclassied the position from a financial analyst to AP spec due to a lack of funds, yet they had the same expectations.

    It was a single Telephonic Interview with my Manager and Sr. Manager. I got selected on the basis on my Telephonic Interview and I came to know that after 1-2 weeks, then my background check started and this process took a long time(3-4 weeks).
