Software Developer Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at BlackBerry.
Interview Details Sent resume on campus job fair. Got a email notification for a 30-minutes phone interview 3 weeks after that job fair. The phone interview has nothing to do with technical problems. The interviewer first introduce the basic information of their company and their development teams. Then he just asked several questions about the resume. Then, he asked about the biggest coding project you did before.
Interview Question – How many classes have you did in your previous project? Answer Question
Very Easy Interview

I applied through college or university and the process took 5 days - interviewed at BlackBerry in August 2012.
Interview Details Had a technical phone interview which included general questions about your resume, puzzles ( One i can think of is: why is manhole round?), products and application. It is better to do research in detail about the company, familiarity with any testing experience before?
Interview Question – tools that you have worked with, in testing? Answer Question
Software Developer Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at BlackBerry.
Interview Details First did a phone interview, which was half technical half behavioral. Was called back to do an inperson interview which lasted most of the day. I was interviewed by different people, in different areas of the company. The first interview was technical while the others were more behavioral, to see if I would fit the office's environment.
Interview Question – Coding question was to make a spell checker, which was not too bad. Answer Question
Marketing Specialist Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at BlackBerry in January 2013.
Interview Details Initial email from recruiter saying I had been selected and verified a time to speak with the hiring manager. Meeting was about 2.5 weeks after this email. Actual interview was mostly manager explaining the position and whats expected from this individual. It was not a standard interview from my experience, none of the nonsense SAW or situation questions on the first interview. Those I spoke with were nice, although HR appeared to be uninformed as much was left up to the manager. No discussion of salary, which can be a waste of everyone's time if its too low.
Software Developer Intern Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at BlackBerry.
Interview Details The interview comprised of two rounds. The first round consisted of a discussion on the resume.The projects I had done as a part of my academic work. I was asked to write a method to count the number of words in a large file, some questions on data structures, breadth first processing
Interview Question – What is the time complexity of breadth first search. When you are counting the number of words in a string suppose you store it in a hash table how do you find the word with the maximum length. Is it worth using a hash table? Answer Question
