Software Developer Intern Interview

Software Developer Intern
Irving, TX (US)

I applied online and interviewed at BlackBerry.

Interview Details Applied via Indeed.com for the Product Delivery Team . Got a call to schedule first round phone interview. The first round interview was taken by one of the team members and was technical but nothing too difficult. Like basic questions on OOPS and other test cases such as functionality of a calculator. Then a second round phone interview was scheduled which I expected to be more technical but that was actually by the team lead and she only asked HR type questions.

Interview Question – what have you worked in mobile development ?   Answer Question

Mechanical Designer Internship Interview

Mechanical Designer Internship
Sunrise, FL (US)

I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at BlackBerry.

Interview Details The interview was based only in two questions, and the last question was to give an answer in a concept of mechanical engineering. I guess was not bad for an interview with them. Unfortunately, no answer since then (at least from the company if I was accepted or not), however, the HR said that they choose a candidate and those ones rejected received an email notifying. Email which I never received and thank I wonder to ask, if not I'll be still waiting for a response
