    Lots of phone interviews. Their general application unlocked 5 interviews in a single week for different positions. Some of the interviews were easier than other, but it spoke to different management styles across different teams.

    Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Waterloo, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Research In Motion (Waterloo, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    Generally ok , but they need to look into their candidate screening process.

    I did not apply for that position( I submitted my resume for another completely unrelated position), The HR called me first and I had no idea what the job was about, but she said I was a good match and asked me to come in for an interview.

    During the interview I found out what the hiring manager wanted and I don't have the necessary skills at all, and I simply asked the guy why I was selected for an interview, since nothing in my resume suggested I could do the job. He was puzzled as well and we guessed that HR probably had a mix-up. So we shook hands and said goodbye, and I just counted this as a whole day wasted on a trip to Waterloo in heavy snow.

    However, after about three months, the SAME HR person left me a voice message, it was for an interview for the SAME position by the SAME manager. And another three months later, while I was in a conference call someone from RIM called me again and I simply rejected the call.
