Senior Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online - interviewed at BlackBerry in April 2011.
Interview Details Very straightforward and technical questions were mostly from what I claimed to know in my resume.
Interview Question – Where title would you like to pursue in the next five years. Answer Question
Mechanical Designer Internship Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
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
Wireless IOT Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at BlackBerry in August 2012.
Interview Details It was a telephonic interview before onsite.

Most of the questions he asked were from resume. He asked me to explain MIMO, difference between spatial diversity and spatial multiplexing, PAPR in OFDMA, ISI mitigation in OFDM, hidden terminal issue, CSMA CA, difference between TCP and UDP, Active states in bluetooth, DNS call flow.

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 days - interviewed at BlackBerry in May 2011.

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
Software Test Associate Interview (Positive Experience; 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
