    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irving, TX (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at BlackBerry in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    Very logical and reasoned process. After phone screen by hiring manager, I was called in for a formal interview by the Development team lead. When I arrived, I found 3 separate team leads and a senior manager. Each had excellent interviewing skills, asking difficult questions pertaining to the position. The questions became more detailed as they attempted to find my technical limits. However, the interview was still concluded within one hour.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irving, TX (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at BlackBerry in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    After two applications, I was call for a telephone interview. This was comprised of resume review and technical questions by the in-house recruiter. Next was an in-person interview with two team leads. Both were very friendly and the RIM complex very nice looking. The interview lasted about an hour and was mostly technical in nature but also had some of the silly hypothetical questions like "describe how you overcame a obstacle". (This is part of the discredited SARS test that all large organizations still use).

    All in all, an ordinary interview process.

    Interview Questions
    • For me, the most difficult questions are the SARS questions.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I wanted to leave my current company and wanted to work for RIM so bad that I did not negotiate. They met my minimum salary expectation so I accepted.
